Vaught Looking to Help Disabled Veterans

Local veteran James Vaught (Lt. Gen. USA – retired) has a vision for using some of the land on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base to help disabled veterans.

Certified 100 percent disabled himself, due to injuries and PTSD resulting from the Vietnam War, Vaught has a special place in his heart for those veterans suffering loss of limbs, traumatic brain injuries and PTSD from the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“These veterans need our help,” Vaught said. “Many of them need a way to get back into the mainstream of our society. Even though many have some permanent type of disability, they want to be able to work and find a way to live a normal life.”

Help with a Hero’s Welcome for Wounded Warriors

Scents for Soldiers will be bringing Wounded Warriors from the Washington DC area for a visit to Myrtle Beach today. They will be making a rest stop at the South Carolina Welcome Center in Little River. From the Welcome Center, they will continue on to Harbour Lights Resort at Fantasy Harbour.

Let’s show them a real Hero’s Welcome to the Beach starting at the Welcome Center!! Bring your flags and wave your hands, and maybe even get a chance to visit with the group as they take a break before the final leg of the trip. We hope you can all be there to welcome the Wounded Warriors to Myrtle Beach.
