    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The South Carolina National Guard has been activated in support of civil unrest response efforts in the District of Columbia, beginning June 2, 2020.

    “The South Carolina National Guard will respond when there is a need to protect our nation’s citizens and support the rights and freedoms of the American people,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Van McCarty, the adjutant general for South Carolina.

    The South Carolina National Guard will continue to respond to requests for assistance within South Carolina to support local law enforcement with protests throughout the state.
