This past weekend, the 03XX Foundation was invited to attend a “golf tournament”. Steve Hotz, a retired 82nd Airborne bubba and his wife, Amy, invited us out to the The Caddy Shack Golf Tournament at a hunting club where they’re members. This wasn’t just an ordinary golf tournament – unless you typically mix up a round of golf with some high power weaponry. For those present, it was a chance to partici-pate in a new sporting and fundraising concept and also the perfect melding of patriotic sports enthusi-asts, veterans of various branches, and 12 active duty Marines from Quantico. Gratefully, I was able to attend; finally able to meet our Case Management Director, Chris Marzoni, for the first time. Heath Sil-cott, a brother from 2/2 who served with me in the invasion of Iraq, brought his wife. I hadn’t seen Heath in a decade or more. What better place to see him again than a venue like this!

He works for them with his career, he offers them his love and compassion, he guides them, he celebrates with them, and he protects them from harm. To him, this definition applies to both his family and his country. He gives of himself wholeheartedly without asking for anything in return; this is the same as the generations of fathers who came before us and those who came before them.
