2nd Annual Seabee Purple Heart Golf Classic
Benefiting the Purple Heart Scholarship
through the Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association
We Build, We Fight!
Living up to their motto – “We Build, We Fight,” the U.S. Navy Seabees have served our nation proudly for 74 years and have an unsurpassed reputation for getting the job done. More than a decade of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have taken a toll on members of this elite team. In addition to the 18 Seabees killed in action, over 100 have been wounded in action. While some were able to bind their wounds and return to full duty, others with more severe injuries had their lives changed forever.
The first Seabee Purple Heart Scholarship Golf Classic was a big success and established the scholarship fund to help support these wounded Seabees by removing the burden of their children’s education from their shoulders. The need far exceeds the available funds so the tournament will be held each year until all students are able to attend the college of their choice.
