2015 Hurricane Hike - Success!
Military Academy 2016 Information
The State Guard Association of the United States (SGAUS) held their annual conference in Baltimore Maryland October 29th - November 1st. The SCSG delegation was presented the Superior Unit Award.  Additionally, coming off the heels of the major flooding disaster, SCSG presented to all nationally represented SDFs its 10-day deployment details, highlighting the incredible work performed by our engineers and the additional combined 27,000 hours of work performed by our troops.
2015 SGAUS Convention
In this statewide emergency the volunteer professionals of the South Carolina State Guard served across the state. There were more than 100 State Guard members, from all three brigades and the headquarters detachment, providing engineering assessments in Newberry, manning the state Emergency Operations Center in Columbia, and filling sandbags in the Low Country. They have provided strategic planning, augmented law enforcement, and provided engineering assistance - all at no cost to the state of SC.
