Senator Tim Scott to host honor ceremonies for Desert Storm and Desert Shield veterans

Charleston, SC - To recognize the efforts of South Carolina veterans who served during the Desert Shield and Desert Storm campaigns, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is scheduled to host two honor ceremonies Saturday, August 27 in Greenville and Charleston. Each veteran attendee will receive a Senatorial Certificate of Appreciation and a lapel pin in commemoration of their service.

"These were critical campaigns for freedom, and it is a privilege for me to honor the brave South Carolina veterans who selflessly sacrificed so much to answer the call of duty," said Scott. "I am forever grateful to each of our veterans, and I only hope they know how much their commitments have helped to positively shape our nation and the world."

The Greenville event will be held at the TD Convention Center at 1 Exposition Drive and will commence at 9 a.m. A separate event is being held in North Charleston at the North Charleston Convention Center at 5000 Coliseum Drive, and will begin at 3 p.m.

Sen. Scott has hosted similar events for our veterans since being elected to federal office, including a World War II honor ceremony in 2012, Korean War events in 2013, and a Vietnam War event in 2014.
