I recently had the rare privilege to visit a place dedicated to healing those who have given so much for the sake of others. American Lake Veterans Golf Course is a rehabilitation center for veterans returning from war. Many have lost arms or legs, but they haven’t lost the dignity of the human spirit. I am proud to share with you this story:

Incredibly inspiring article!
All I can say is “WOW”… this gives me hope that there are still some very good individuals left in this world. People who want to help and are motivated to help our service men and women.
You inspire me with your writing Stacie! I LOVED this story. I LOVE stories about people coming together for something so positive, like helping someone else do the things they LOVE; inspiring people and making everyone around them happy. It’s LOVE, it is simply LOVE from every angle.
