In part, is to serve as an umbrella unit for all of our Veterans Organizations, for the good of all of these groups and veterans at large throughout Oconee County, SC.

OCVC was chartered as a tax exempt charitable entity in 1997. Is is made up of twelve (12) Veteran service organizations. The councils membership is comprised of one member from each of the Veterans Service Organizations. Our group has the primary responsibility for hosting the annual county Memorial Day Ceremony and Veterans Day Parade. Furthermore, we serve the interest of our Oconee County Veterans Affairs Office and offer insight and assistance to this office on any matters that come to our attention by the Director of that office.

Other Local Missions We Sponsor

Oconee County DAV Van Project

The purpose of this van is to transport local veterans, who have no transportation, to any of our established VA Medical Appointments at one of the VA Clinics, Hospitals or Community Care sites. The van program depends on volunteer drivers willing to certify with the VA and help transport our veterans. We currently are in need of volunteers so if you are interested please contact us. The van traditionally runs Thursdays to the Greenville clinic.

This fund has aided literally hundreds of veterans/families throughout the country over the last 20 years- Veterans who find themselves in difficult financial conditions through no willful fault of their own. Funded with donations from local residents and events like the Memorial Day 5k Run/Walk. If you are a veteran or know of one that may need assistance please contact us or fill out the form below.
