Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Aug 28, 2017 - Veteran Transport Services will host its signature fundraiser, Military Golf Playoff, Land Vs. Air & Sea, September 21, 2017. The event will raise funds to provide transportation services, education and advocacy for blind and disabled veterans. The playoff features Land (Army, Reserves and Marines) vs Air & Sea (Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard) and promises to be an exciting and fun-filled event.
“The purpose for the event is to raise money for the provision of transportation for veterans so that they can rejoin society to the benefit of all parties. The suicide rate for veterans is extremely high for sundry reasons. We feel if we can assist blind and disabled veterans in getting out of their homes that it will encourage them to look forward to a bright future” said Janet Perkins, the event organizer and president of Veteran Transport Services.
In the Charlotte veteran catchment area there are in excess of 1,100 blind veterans in addition to the numerous other types of veterans with disabilities. Once they have lost their driving privileges, transportation becomes critical for them if they are going to engage with those who they have served in the military.
