Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1113 will soon transform a golf course in Memphis, Tenn., into a “safe haven” for veterans and their families. Formerly operated by Memphis Athletic Ministries, the course will be outfitted to be more accessible.
“Veterans and their families can come here and be in an atmosphere that is accommodating for their unique set of circumstances,” chapter President Leonard Perkins told WMC-TV.
The chapter will rename the course the All Veterans Golf Plex in order to welcome veterans of all U.S. conflicts. “I know when I came back from Vietnam it wasn’t a welcoming thing for us, and we took that to heart,” Toles and Associates president James Toles said.
