COVID Did Not Stop Holiday Wishes


Thanks to the generosity of the South Carolina National Guard Foundation, the South Carolina National Guard and the South Carolina Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) Support Coordinators prepared holiday cards and ornaments to mail Nov. 25, 2020, in Columbia, South Carolina.

Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19, the traditional Holiday Gathering annually hosted by SOS needed to be postponed to 2021. (U.S. Army National Guard photos by Sgt. Tim Andrews, South Carolina National Guard).


“Thanks for all you do for myself and Family. The 2020 ornament is beautiful and card very special. I know I don’t respond much, but thanks aren’t enough for you, Julia. Our family here in SC, NC, and GA is comforted knowing you’re there and you remember Our Soldier, and love of my eternity, SGT Robert H. Bagley (“SGT BAGS”).”
