Resources for greenville area veterans

 

Veteran Scholarships Forever was recently inspired by Greenville Technical College’s veteran support page. There, they’ve listed all the resources they provide to veterans on one page. (See Greenville Tech’s Veteran Resources here!)

In that spirit, we’ve listed a few major Greenville area resources for veterans in one place for you to share with a vet you know and love.
