SC Thrive, a statewide nonprofit, calls for nominations to honor 46 veterans across the state. This event, entitled “The 46 Veteran Salute” will recognize one veteran in each county in South Carolina with an honorary certificate and a $25 Texas Roadhouse gift card. Beginning November 1, the recipients will be announced and presented or mailed their gifts. The 46 Veteran Salute is the start of a new focus in servicing the needs of veterans statewide in collaboration with Truist Bank, Molina Healthcare and Texas Roadhouse. Nominate a veteran at 46veterans.scthrive.org.
With multiple veterans on staff, SC Thrive empathizes with the challenges that current and former service members face. SC Thrive helps military and veteran families access the benefits they deserve by breaking down barriers through resources like the SCVets Guide — which includes information on housing, healthcare, employment and other services for veterans in South Carolina. Now, to more holistically aid current and former service members, SC Thrive is expanding its efforts.
As the relaunch of the Veteran Support Program rolls out, SC Thrive plans to implement the following:
- The 46 Veteran Salute event that honors veterans living in South Carolina.
- Peer support groups for female veterans that will discuss challenges and coping strategies specifically related to their population.
- Coming Soon: Updated SCVets Guide with the latest resources for South Carolina veterans, military members and their families, available digitally and in print.
- Mental Health First Aid for veterans which teaches veterans, military members and their families how to identify, understand and respond to signs of mental health issues and substance use disorders specific to military culture.
