Honoring Their Service: Motorcycle/Jeep escort starts at SWU

    06.18.18 | Community Contagious generosity

    An escort of U.S. Special Operations Command Marines, along with spouses, were greeted June 11 by many well-wishers, including those from Southern Wesleyan University and the surrounding community. The escort left the Central campus, bound for rest and recreation at nearby Lake Keowee. The event was organized by Honoring Their Service.


    “We can't all be heroes, some of us have to stand on the curb and clap as they go by,” said the great American author Mark Twain.

    Southern Wesleyan University employees and the surrounding community came out to do just that – to welcome U.S. Special Operations Command Marines based at Camp Lejuene, N.C. June 11 and show appreciation for their service.

    The university served as the starting point for a motorcycle and Jeep escort of 27 Marines along with spouses bound for Lake Keowee and four days of much-needed rest and relaxation. Jeeps were provided by Upstate Legends Jeep Club. The escort is organized annually by Honoring Their Service, an organization whose purpose is to give the community an opportunity to say “thank you,” and to show military personnel and veterans appreciation for what they do, day in and day out.
