Good morning folks, exciting news, the First ever, VB Golf Crew Charity Golf Tournament will be held May 2010 on Thursday the 20th. It will be held at Aeropines Golf Course, on the Naval Air Base Oceana , depending on the numbers of teams, may even be on both courses.
Great news, but it gets better. This area has strong ties to the military, and every gets to see on a daily basis what that means for us, and our country. Being able to wake up, and not fear for your life is something the every day person takes for granted. It is all due to the sacrifice of our Armed Forces at home and especially abroad, being in harms way to protect us. It is fitting in the nation's largest military town, we do something to give back to the people who lay down their lives for us every day.
I am proud to announce that the 2010 VB Golf Crew Tournament will benefit Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. I did a lot of research, and thanks to our great military representative, Brett "I wanna" Holdiman, we decided this is the best charity to help our troops. The deciding factor is, when a solider has an emergency, and can't find a way home to family, they can contact the fund, and they will get them home. Who could bear to be away from a death in the family, or the birth of their first child.
Here is their Mission Statement:
