David LeBlanc grew up in a large Navy family and fortunately, after moving from Georgia to the South Pacific to California to Virginia, his parents, originally from the New Orleans area, decided to make Charleston their permanent home. He hails from a family of Veterans. His father, Joe LeBlanc, retired from the Navy as a Supply Corps Officer and his brother, Steve, served in the Navy Submarine community.
He is a graduate of Bishop England High School and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from The Citadel.
He served our country for 29 years, retiring as a Navy Captain having served in a variety of both active and reserve leadership, operational and staff positions. In addition to his Navy assignments, he has worked on Charleston’s waterfront as a Safety Director with Stevens Shipping & Terminal Co. and as a Project Manager with Scientific Research Corporation.
On August 14, 2017, he was appointed by the Charleston County Legislative Delegation as the Director of Veterans Affairs for Charleston County. Mandated by the SC Legislature and funded by Charleston County, the Director of Veterans Affairs assists veterans and their dependents in applying for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
He and his wife Regina recently celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary and are the proud parents of David, Jr. (28) and Katelyn (23). They reside in Mount Pleasant.
