Mark your calendar's from August 29th through September 1st with a big green smiley face. Put down your gardening tools, and take out your golf tools, and tool-on over to one of over 3000 golf courses throughout our great country, and tee it up for those that can't.
Fighter pilot Captain Dan Rooney...shares like many of you, the love of golf, but he has channeled that love into a grander vision that includes giving back to his country..."Noonan" (the Captain's call sign), thought about his comrades that could not be with him on the golf course, and last year started something big...
...over $1 million dollars big.
He started Patriot Golf Day to benefit The Rooney Fallen Heroes Foundation.
Last year golf courses around our United States of America raised their greens fees by $1. That dollar was earmarked for families of fallen US soldiers killed or wounded throughout our current military operations. This year will be the same...and with your help, even greater results.
This year Captain Rooney will be going back for his third Tour of Duty.
We owe it to him and his foundation to take a couple tours around the golf course. Captain, thank you for your service.
Thanks for reading. Keep it in the short-grass,
