COLUMBUS, Ga. – More than 100 golfers took part in the 2nd Annual Headquarter Nissan Charity Golf Tournament on Monday to benefit Warrior Outreach and HOOAH, two local organizations that support active duty military, veterans and their families.
The event took place at Green Island County Club in Columbus.
Terry Bell, managing partner of Headquarter Nissan, says a major part of his business mission is to support organizations that support the nation’s military and veterans.
“I’ve gotten to know some of the veterans, I call them Battle Buddies,” Bell said. “When you get to be a part of their world and can give back to them, it just makes you feel good, and we like to do it with action – not just words.”
According to a news release, the Warrior Outreach mission is to support Veterans, service members and their families. The activities include structured opportunities for them to interact with Horses in a group as well as individual basis at the Warrior
Outreach ranch establish in 2013. The main focus is to identify those in need of assistance in transitioning and adjusting to life after traumatic occurrences such as war. The Program operates in support of the Active Duty, National Guard, Army Reserve, Veterans administration and others who need help.
HOOAH, Inc’s mission is to lend support to forward deployed servicemen and women, their stateside families, and returning veterans with a high level of understanding, compassion, and empathy.
Both organizations help military personnel and veterans who are dealing with issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder get help and support. For more information on both organizations, log on to www.warrioroutreach.org or www.hooahinc.org.
