The MWSF was pleased to be part of the Colonial event that featured six living Medal of Honor recipients including Texas local, Mike Thornton. At the event, MWSF presented a “surprise” home to Louis and Laura Dahlman. They are so excited to stay in Texas where Louis has been undergoing treatment for injuries sustained in battle in Iraq. Their new home will be in Houston, Texas, where he will be near several other MWSF families who have received new homes in the area!
Two homes were given away to two very deserving heroes on May 11th, 2011 in sunny Florida. The event was held at The Players Championship at Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The homes were presented to the heroes by PGA TOUR player Jim Furyk. He said to the crowd, “My uniform is a golf shirt. Soldiers like Anthony and Nate put on the uniform of the United States of America. They have chosen to put country first and dedicate their lives to protecting and defending the greatest nation in the world. For that, we owe them a debt of gratitude.

There was Rickie Fowler, resplendent in purple shirt and hat with white slacks, walking down the fairway with both of his caddies. His regular guy, Joe Skovron, was there, not a bib or bag in sight, while Jason Roberts was the one wearing the caddie bib and toting the bag during The Heritage’s pro-am. Roberts, a U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt., walked the fairways with the help of a prosthetic limb after he lost his left leg in a firefight in Afghanistan a little less than two years ago, and Fowler was more than glad to oblige.
