Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation

The Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation focuses on providing help to wounded warriors who live in Texas. Over the last twelve years, the Foundation's Pro-Am golf tournaments have evolved into a long weekend involving 25-30 injured warriors annually and providing many opportunities for good food and R&R in Tyler. Texas golf Pro-Ams are also held in Amarillo and Horseshoe Bay.  Retreats with a spiritual emphasis are held twice a year benefiting the warriors and their families. An annual golf school is held in San Antonio with participants from the Warrior and Family Support Center at Brooke Army Medical Center.
