Our Chapter held two new Summer programs that provided free golf instruction to our veterans of Broward County.
We had 40 participants at Woodlands Country Club in Tamarac and Weston Hills Country Club in Weston with Coaches – Duncan Smith, Darrell Welker, Steve Voguit and Nick Cupper, along with volunteers – John Linn and Mike Dobzinski.
“With First Tee bringing us to the game of golf and meeting other Veterans and golf pros, gives us motivation to get out of our perceived “comfort zone” and mix and socialize with other,” said Veteran participant Michael Chambers. “Many civilians do not understand Veterans and the fear some of us have when it comes to simply getting out of the house and dealing with people who have no idea of what we have seen, lived and done while serving our country. I take my hat off to The First Tee and Mission United for helping the Veterans find life after service
