Wounded veterans and military families are getting some help one tee at at a time

News

Veterans and active military personal got a chance to show off their putting skills.

TPC Deere Run hosted its Birdies for the Brave fundraiser.
 Today’s donations will help 11 military home-front groups. 
 More than two dozen active members came out to show their skills on the course to play alongside the donors.
A veteran with PTSD says this money will save lives. 
“People appreciate what they’re doing. I want them to know that when they look at the face of somebody that’s been through various amounts of PTSD in every shape and form, from like how I’ve said to losing my wife to my best friend and being in the military, you’re making a change, you’re doing something positive,” says Marine Corps veteran, Jay Milinichik.
Organizers say they raised $26,000 from today’s event.
