6th annual ‘Operation Welcome Home Veterans Golf Classic’ held

Monongalia and Preston

Friday, the sixth annual ‘Operation Welcome Home Veterans Golf Classic’ was held at Lakeview Resort in Morgantown. 

Many teams made up of various members of the community took part in the classic, including former WVU football head coach Don Nehlen and former WVU football player, Jeff Hostetler. 

One issue that many veterans face when coming back from active duty is not being able to find meaningful employment in the community.

Funds raised by this event support ‘Operation Welcome Home’ in the mission to serve veterans with job placement and services.

“This golf outing is special. It’s special for the entire community because the veterans are our heroes. Anything that we can do to help the veterans, especially be employed, we’re gonna do,” said Coach Don Nehlen. 

Nearly 150 people took part in Friday’s golf classic.
