Eric Holzer, co-owner of South Carolina retail chain Palmetto Moon, announced that the company presented nine South Carolina state flags to the 3/49 Agribusiness Development Team (SC ADT 3/49) during their departure ceremony at the South Carolina Army National Guard’s McCrady Training Center on Thursday, Jan. 10. The unit will fly the flags during their yearlong mission in Afghanistan.

Several hundred family members, friends and National Guard officials, including South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, attended the ceremony to send off the unit of approximately 40 soldiers from throughout the state of South Carolina.

The SC ADT 3/49 Team is currently in Camp Atterbury, Ind., for training before their deployment to Afghanistan where their mission is to teach local farmers agricultural techniques and how to grow sustainable crops to improve their lives and provide for their families.

“On behalf of everyone at Palmetto Moon, we are honored to donate South Carolina flags to these amazing men and women that serve our country. Their tireless service to make the United States and the world a better place does not go unnoticed,” said Holzer.

“The purpose of these flags is to give the troops a little piece of South Carolina to take with them and to serve as a reminder that we are eager for their safe return home.”
