Armed Forces Day Golf

In celebration of Armed Forces Day on Saturday, May 17, Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) invites Ohio's veterans and the general public to our first annual "Veterans Golf Free Day." The event will take place at the Forrest E. Everhart Golf Course on the Chillicothe VA Medical Center's campus, located at 17273 State Route 104, Chillicothe, OH 45601. Because we are anticipating a large turnout, participants should contact Randy Post at the golf course at 740-774-VETS to schedule their tee times, which will start at 8am and end at 2pm.

"Veterans Golf Free Day" will include 9 holes of golf, the use of a golf cart and lunch for all eligible veterans and military members. In addition, there will be door prizes provided, along with a 50/50 raffle later that day. Veterans and active service members just need to show proof of military service to golf for free. Non-veterans will pay the regular course fees, and lunch will be included.

"MVRC is excited about hosting our first 'Veterans Golf Free Day,'" says Len Proper, Military Veterans Resource Center's Executive Director. "We're hoping for a great turnout of both veterans and the public to help us honor and support the men and women who have faithfully served our nation."

If you or your organization is looking for a way to acknowledge and thank Ohio's veterans, Military Veterans Resource Center is accepting donations to help support our veterans in this event. For more information about "Veterans Golf Free Day," please contact MVRC at 614-230-0662, or see Randy Post at the golf course.


Military Veterans Resource Center is a non-profit organization that provides personalized career services to veterans who served honorably. MVRC works with veterans one-on-one to identify the obstacles preventing them from gaining employment and helps them access the resources to overcome those obstacles. These resources include job-readiness coaching, skills training, counseling, or supportive services and may be accessed through MVRC or through partnerships with veterans’ service organizations, private social service agencies, and/or state and federal agencies. MVRC is based in Columbus, Ohio and operates eight centers throughout the state of Ohio. For additional information, please visit www.milvetsrc.org
