To ensure Charleston is the nation’s most supportive community of our military family.

OUR Mission

To bridge the gap between the greater Charleston community and our military service members through volunteering, fundraising, engagement and education.

About us

Who We Are

Founded in 2015, Palmetto Military Support Group (PMSG) is an IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit, fully volunteer-run organization that supports service members from every branch of the military serving in our Charleston community. PMSG acts as a liaison between military leadership and the civilian community to promote a mutual understanding of one another’s mission and opportunities for engagement.

Our membership-based organization is comprised of individuals, veterans, small businesses and large corporations that have a passion for supporting our military and understand the 10.8 billion dollar economic impact the military brings to our community annually. PMSG’s vision is that Charleston be recognized as the nation’s most supportive community of our military family.

Won’t you consider joining PMSG today and enjoy having a definitive way to give back to our Lowcountry community warriors?

Our Logo

Established by Presidential Executive Order, The National Defense Service Medal is likely the first medal a service member will receive upon commission or enlistment. It is awarded for honorable active military service as a member of the armed forces of the United States. As such, it is the most inclusive of all service medals and virtually every service person is awarded it. It’s a perfect symbol for the Palmetto Military Support Group, which works in the community to help all active duty, reserves, veterans, spouses, and their families from all of the branches.
