COLUMBIA, SC — The Offices of Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) wish to remind you of Senator Scott’s South Carolina Women Veterans Event this Saturday at First Baptist Church of Columbia. The event is free and open to public, but please RSVP at

“I am so excited to welcome everyone to Columbia this Saturday to honor our state’s women veterans. From the Upstate to the Lowcountry, South Carolinians know that we are a grateful people who love, cherish, and respect our armed forces.

These women have took on the mantle of leadership and have fought to preserve all of our God-given freedoms. I look forward to having Iowa’s own Senator Joni Ernst, a combat veteran herself, join me in honoring the Palmetto State’s 43,000 women veterans. Hope to see y’all then!”
