SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC)- In just a few weeks, the Independence Fund will bring 25 severely wounded Iraq and Afghanistan veterans to the Lowcountry for a special week of golf.
It's all part of the inaugural Healing Heroes Golf Week, where the veterans will hit the links at a number of different golf courses throughout the Lowcountry. Organizers say it's an important event.
"No. 1 is to raise awareness of the needs of our veterans and the second purpose is to raise $17,000 to buy one paramobile device," said Dick Clark of the Independence Fund.
