We received fantastic news this past week! The South Carolina Military Base Task Force released an updated study, which reflects that the Beaufort region’s military presence boasts an annual economic impact of approximately $2.2 billion that is supported by 19,240 jobs and $993.8 million in generated labor income. The 2017 study was prepared by Dr. Joey Von Nessen of the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. As always, we are so grateful for the service and economic engine of military men and women at our local bases and for both the Navy and Marine Corps’ continued engagement in our community. As part of the Chamber’s work with the Military Enhancement Committee, we must continue to defend and protect our region’s bases as the military is clearly such an integral part of Beaufort and Port Royal.
      We are gearing up for the Beaufort Air Show this weekend! Don’t miss this opportunity to see the Blue Angels flying over the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort this Saturday and Sunday, April 29 & 30. The event is free and open to the public.
