Operation Aquatic Freedom
With over 22 Veteran suicides a day and countless cases related to PTSD, anxiety, depression, and inability to reacclimate to civilian life, we owe our great nation’s heroes the help they so deservingly desire. We use recreation to combat these statistics, create change, and promote a healthy quality of life for our brave servicemen and women.
Patriot Placements is committed to serving the military community by working with the business community to promote job placement and economic independence to our nation’s heroes and their spouses.
The First Tee Broward (Childrend Golf Foundation)
The First Tee of Broward partners with United Way of Broward County's MISSION United to deliver free golf programs to local Broward veterans. Our program not only provides expert golf instruction delivered by PGA professionals, it also provides an atmosphere for fellowship, bonding and healing among our local veterans.
