Warriors Sports Project
PING is proud
to be involved with the Wounded Warriors Sports Project. The
Project is currently partnering with PGA of America to offer
golf lessons at five of the major military medical centers in
the U.S. The format involves running an eight week long course
where Warriors receive instruction from PGA professionals that
have been trained in adaptive teaching techniques. Those wounded
warriors who attend at least six of the training sessions and
have a permanent severe disability receive a full bag of custom-fit
and custom-built PING golf clubs. If you would like additional
information on the Wounded Warrior Sports Project, please feel
free to contact that organization at (904) 296-7350 or visit

LtCol Rich Beil USMC (Ret.) is
planning the The Jack Lummus-Young Marines Golf Tournament in
Waco, Texas June 6, 2015 at Twin
Rivers Golf Club in Waco. The purpose of this Golf Tournament
is reach out to the parents of central texas to support the expansion
of the Young Marines in Central Texas. Target date to raise funds
for this event is September 1st 2014. We firmly believe that
this golf tournament will ultimately become a sufficient revenue
source to continue. But, it normally takes 2 to 3 years for an
event of this type to become recognized and well established.
Its not uncommon, for the inaugural event, to have far
fewer golfers show up than hoped for. I can only ask everyone
to reconsider and help us reach our goal of $5,000 by September
1st by going to our event website and making a contribution today.

Uchenna Nworah, a Nurse Practitioner
at the VA Medical Center and doctoral candidate at Texas Women's
University, is conducting research for her doctoral degree. She
is interested in learning more about how male veterans from the
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan make decisions about using the health
care resources that are available to them.
All male veterans who served in the U.S.
military and fought in either Iraq or Afghanistan are eligible
to participate in this study. You will have to meet with Ms.
Nworah for an in-person interview, which will take about one
hour. Anyone who participates will also receive a $25 gift certificate
for their time.
