When the shotgun signals the beginning of the Rotary Club of Concord’s 29th Annual Golf Tournament May 22 at the Concord Country Club, a foursome of post 9/11 disabled war veterans will be among the players.  The veterans were referred by the Salute Military Golf Association, Boston (SMGA Boston), an organization that “empowers wounded veterans, one fairway at a time.”  Jerry Shanahan, a dedicated SMGA volunteer, spoke at a recent Rotary meeting.  He described how SMGA provides rehabilitative golf programs, experiences and family inclusive golf opportunities for post 9/11 wounded vets, including those with PTSD and traumatic brain injury. The program has vastly improved the quality of life for participating veterans. The Rotary Club realized it could help by inviting sponsors to underwrite the $250 fee for a veteran to play in its tournament. If you are interested in sponsoring a veteran to play, please contact Joe Saia, 978-369-3872 or joe@westconcordliquors.com.
