I love golf!  And so pleased to share with my readers this event to honor and support our brave warriors.  Please let your friends & neighbors know about the Military Appreciation Gala and Pro-Am Charity Golf Event.  It is fantastic to see the PGA supporting our veterans returning home to life after war.
