The South Carolina Council of MOAA Chapters was the leader in forming The South Carolina Veterans Coalition.

The South Carolina Veterans Coalition (SCVC) is a grassroots consortium of veteran service organizations (VSOs) within SOUTH CAROLINA, representing over 56,000 members, that was was formed in early 2021 to help advance legislative proposals and policies before the South Carolina Legislature and the Office of the Governor. The SCVC is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization, comprised of prominent South Carolina veteran and military groups, whose overall goal is to protect and enhance the well-being of the uniformed services community, including currently serving, veterans, retirees and their families and survivors.

Current member organizations include American Veterans (AMVETS), Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Palmetto and Coastal Chapters, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Marine Corps League (MCL), Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), Navy League of the United States, Reserve Officer Association (ROA), and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Several other VSOs are in the process of joining this coalition.

The SCVC was the key power behind the passage of the SC's new miltary Acts.

A note of caution, the South Carolina Depart of Veteran Affairs recently formed an organization with an out of state group and named it the South Carolina Veteran Coalition. There is only one letter differance in the name of this oranization and the South Carolina grass roots organization SCVC. SCMOAA is NOT a member of this group.
