GHS hosts two events during run of 'A Few Good Men'
The play “A Few Good Men”, filled with drama, suspense and wise cracking humor, is being performed at Centre Stage through June 7.

Greenville Health System is a sponsor for the play and is hosting two events during the play’s run.

“‘A Few Good Men’ is a classic that will certainly provide good entertainment while encouraging conversation,” said Kevin McBride, director of the GHS Military and Government Liaison Office. “GHS is excited to lead a conversation about caring for the Upstate’s veterans, as well as give the community an opportunity to hear former military lawyers’ thoughts on the play.”

Vet Talk is a free lunch scheduled for Friday, May 30 at noon at Centre Stage. The community is invited to learn about services that GHS and others offer Upstate veterans. Registration is required for the lunch by calling 1-877-447-4636 or visiting here. Upstate Warrior Solutions and the Greenville Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic will have representatives participating in the talk, too.

People attending the Sunday, June 1 3 p.m. are invited to stay afterward for a “Talk Back,” which will include a discussion with former military lawyers about the play.

See a schedule of performances for “A Few Good Men”.Tickets can be purchased through the website or by calling the theatre’s box office at (864) 233-6733.

South Carolina is home to more than 421,000 veterans and is among a handful of states experiencing an increase in veteran population. More than 100,000 veterans live in the Upstate.

The GHS Military and Government Liaison Office, formed earlier this year, works to better collaborate with veterans’ organizations and explore future initiatives.

Military hospitals across the United States use driving simulators that were created by Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research and DriveSafety in conjunction with work at GHS’ Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital (RCP). The simulators, first used at RCP, help veterans who have experienced combat-related injuries return to driving.

A traumatic brain injury study involving veterans has also taken place at Acceleration Sports Institute on the GHS Patewood Medical Campus.
