Grand Strand, SC Chapter 925, working with the City of Myrtle Beach, held its annual Military Appreciation Days Dinner Dance May 25 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
It was part of the city’s month-long series of parades, picnics, marches, and ceremonies honoring active-duty military and veterans.
Nearly sixty wounded veterans from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq received free tickets to the event from the chapter.
“It’s a big welcome home party,” said Chapter Secretary Gary McCormick. “We appreciate what they’ve done.” Added Chapter President Richard Gregory: “That’s what our chapter does. We’re here to help others.”
