For 7 years, Booz Allen Hamilton has partnered with the Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA) to help the organization meet its mission to “empower veterans, one fairway at a time.” The firm sponsors SMGA’s Wounded Veteran Golf Tournament, a series of golf events at 17 locations across the United States that support the SMGA effort to provide rehabilitative golf experiences to wounded American veterans injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. To date, SMGA has helped over 2,000 veterans, offering more than 80 golf clinics a year. Last year SMGA tournaments raised $100,000 for veterans—and the group expects to raise even more this year.

This year, more than 100 Booz Allen employees will donate hundreds of hours of their time to plan the golf events and/or to volunteer at one of 17 tournaments to be held in cities across the country.  Booz Allen Associate Jenna Coffman (pictured, above right) has volunteered with the SMGA tournaments for 3 years, and is the volunteer coordinator for the San Diego tournament, one of the largest in the series.  She says, “The SMGA tournament has brought me to really appreciate all that our service members do for our country.  The sacrifice and the dedication of these men and women is extraordinary, and it’s an honor to be able to give back to them a small token of appreciation.”
