On March 23rd the Inaugural Military Muster charity golf tournament was held at Fox Hollow Golf Club in Trinity, Florida. The tournament, which was founded by Army veteran Donny Alston, benefitted Chapter 78 (in New Port Richey, FL) of Disabled American Veterans, an organization whose mission is to build better lives for disabled veterans and their families. The tournament also benefitted Operation Homefront, which provides emergency assistance and morale to active duty troops and their families, as well as to wounded soldiers upon their return back home. Alston, who lost his left leg in a training mission, now plays golf with a prosthetic leg that sports the Titleist script.
