“So long as there are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks will never forget them”.


A message from Fred Thompson, Chairman, South Carolina State Elks Veterans Committee

I would like to thank Rodney Grant for his service the past five years as the South Carolina State Elks Veterans Chair.  Rodney’s tireless dedication to our Veterans programs across South Carolina has made my transition into this position very easy!  THANK YOU Rodney!!!

Since I took over this position in February 2012, I have had the honor to work with many of the Local Lodge Veterans Committees.  The programs that are in place, and have been for many years, are outstanding.  Please keep up the GREAT work that you do.

We must NEVER forget the sacrifice that our veterans have made so that we might have our freedoms.  Not just on Memorial Day or Veterans Day, but EVERYDAY of the year these men and women should be in our thoughts!  For many, it is the coming home, not the fighting, that is the toughest part.  Those returning with physical and/or behavioral ailments must know that they will never be forgotten.  Suicide or homelessness cannot be the result of their courage.

Thank you for your service to our Veterans.  If your Lodge does not have an active Veterans Committee, please contact me.  PLEASE, do not restrict the size of your Veterans Committee.  The more members, the better!!!


Fred Thompson
