Warriors for Freedom

Warriors for Freedom Foundation is a non-profit tax-exempt organization that provides support to American heroes and their families in the areas of outdoor activities, scholarships, legal assistance and mental health. It also promotes awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Combat Stress Reaction (CSR).

 

Folds of Honor

Warriors for Freedom Foundation partners with Folds of Honor Foundation, which administers Patriot Golf Day through the PGA of America. Folds of Honor was founded by Major Dan Rooney, who flew three tours of duty in Iraq. It provides scholarships for dependents and spouses of service members who have been killed or disabled in the line of duty.

 

SMGA

Founded by Jim Estes, the Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA) is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide rehabilitative golf experiences and family-inclusive golf opportunities for post - 9/11 wounded war veterans in an effort to improve the quality of life for these American heroes.

 

Freedom Golf Program – Ireland

This program gives seriously injured veterans not only an opportunity to experience golf on some of the world’s most inspiring courses, but to reach inside themselves to discover their personal potential through golf clinics, positive interaction and ambassadorship with a business professional during the course of the trip. The trip offers veterans a wide-ranging, holistic, therapeutic approach with assessments and outcome measurements on three levels: • Intrapersonal Skills (such as emotional control, relaxation, goal-setting, positive self-talk, focus and concentration) •  Interpersonal Skills (such as decision-making, socialization, communication, problem-solving and leadership) •  Call-to-Action Skills (such as public speaking, community involvement, networking and role-modeling) All injured veterans will be selected through Warriors For Freedom, Folds of Honor Foundation, Salute Military Golf Association, Fort Belvoir Hospital and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

 

Ambassador/Donor

Becoming an Ambassador/Donor means much more than making a donation. You are an integral part of a program to promote holistic wellness with seriously injured U.S. veterans. You are donating your time, your personality and your experience to connect, interact, motivate and guide these most deserving veterans. Over the course of the week, you will meet many wounded veterans and hear their stories and how they have adapted to a new life. Bonds will be made and new relationships will blossom long after the trip is over. Sometimes the only way to get up is by a helping hand. By coming on this trip, you are offering that helping hand. As an Ambassador/Donor, you can change their lives, and they will change yours.
