A beautiful June afternoon for a picnic with friends and a little golf….The Keepers and SMGA/Wounded Warriors shared this great experience at our annual Wounded Warriors Outing at Woodmont Country Club. Keeper guys and their wives hosted 15 Wounded Warriors and a pair of very cute service dogs to some golf instruction, lunchin’ on the lawn, a round of golf, and after game cocktails, veggies, and big fish stories.
The entire crew…including Tucker and Gunner….
Getting to know you…getting to know something about you….
Anchored, belly, or conventional putters…the debate goes on….
Some professional attention…….
Now that is dedicated service………
Apparently they could not agree on the putting line……
And then it all came down to eating and carousing with friends…..
With the help of the Salute Military Golfers Association our members have an opportunity to spend the day getting to know these men and women who have given so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy. Their courage and perseverance in facing the challenges their service has presented is something special indeed. Playing a little golf, sharing some personal time, and getting to know these American heroes was an honor and a pleasure for all who participated.
