A Day on the Links to Support America’s Sailors and Coast Guardsmen: Thursday, May 26th

An upcoming event from the Association of the United States Navy:

The Association of the United States Navy invites players and sponsors to join us at the beautifully-manicured Courses at Andrews Air Force Base for a memorable day of camaraderie, golf, and a show of solidarity for Sailors and Coast Guardsmen. A portion of the proceeds from the Second AUSN Golf Tournament will support the critical work of the Navy Safe Harbor Foundation.The men and women of the U.S. Navy and Coastguard make tremendous sacrifices every day to keep their country and fellow citizens safe. Even in the best of times, their duties are dangerous and stressful. 

When a Sailor or Coast Guardsman falls ill or is seriously wounded during training or in the line of duty, the Navy Safe Harbor Foundation is there. By providing tailored assistance, the foundation aids men and women on the road to recovery. It plays a vital role often not filled by government or community resources by assisting these individuals, as well as their families, during some of the most challenging times of their lives.
