STATE: Gov. Henry McMaster Announces S.C. Vietnam War Veterans Day
COLUMBIA - Governor Henry McMaster held a special event today honoring South Carolina veterans and issued a statewide proclamation recognizing the first annual South Carolina Vietnam War Veterans Day.
"I want to thank all here, and those not here, who have participated mightily and in great sacrifice in making this the greatest country in the history of the world," said Gov. McMaster. "There's no doubt about it, and with the kind of strength and determination that has been exhibited by those here and others who are not here, we will remain in that position.
