Golfers helping wounded veterans
NBC's Roger O'Neil will report tonight the story of a pro golfer helping disabled vets -- it's part of our "What Works" series.
The golfer featured tonight is part of a partnership program established by the PGA of America, Disabled Sports USA and the Department of Defense for severely wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. The PGA has coordinated a team of six PGA Professionals per city, who will instruct wounded warriors at sites near the three primary military hospitals - Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.; Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; and Naval Medical Center San Diego in San Diego, Calif.
The program is a nationwide initiative involving both active duty and retired members of the Armed Forces who were severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Learn more about the program and find pro golfers instructing the disabled in your area.
