6/26/2014

They do so much to help protect our freedom at home and abroad, and on Thursday, June 26, 216 soldiers and veterans were treated to a free round of golf and lunch by Park and Recreation and Community Support Services – Veterans Services Division.
 
The 9th annual  Veterans and Reservists Golf Classic featured members of all branches of the military competing at the Charles T. Myers Golf Course in northern Mecklenburg County.
 
“This is a special event that honors the people who have done things for our country and it’s good that somebody would look after us and give us a day of our own,” said U.S. Army veteran Henry Lindsay, who has played in this tournament seven times.
