USO of North Carolina Announces “Fore the Troops” Tour: Golf tournament series to help make Every Moment Count

This year, the USO of North Carolina is combining its individual fundraising golf tournaments into a season-long tour to support our troops and wounded warriors across the state. The four regional tournaments all lead to the grand finale in September: the Traditions of Honor Cup, featuring Medal of Honor recipients, veterans and current military members.
The “Fore The Troops” Tour opens in New Bern, and travels to Wake Forest, Greensboro and Southern Pines. Each course has two winners that will advance to the Traditions of Honor Cup in Charlotte: the Highest Fundraiser and the Lowest Score. Golfers can also register directly to play in the Tradition of Honors Cup at www.usoncforethetroops.com.
“The golfers in previous USO of NC tournaments across the state have been a great group of supporters. We hope to build on their interest in supporting the work of the USO of NC by engaging them beyond one event, although no one has to golf in more than one. Our hope is that they will have such a great time at these premier golf facilities that they will want to participate in more - and get their friends involved,” USO of NC President John Falkenbury said. “In the end, it is about how we can come together to support our wounded warriors, our troops – active duty, National Guard and Reserve -- and their families. The need for our critical programs and services is growing especially our vital resiliency and transition assistance initiatives.  
The Tour brings North Carolinians together to support our troops, help the USO of NC to continue its over 70 years of care and comfort to them, and enjoy many of the great golf venues across the state.” Not a golfer?
Not a problem. Through the USO of NC Patriot Club, you can set up a team page and spread the word, request support from family and friends and earn the chance to join us at the elite 10th Annual Salute to Freedom Gala this October. To register a team in the golf tour, go to www.usoncforethetroops.com. Sponsorships for the tour are available.
