WOTG (Warriors on the Green) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization helping wounded and disabled veterans through the game of golf.
For Staff Sargent George Jordan and other veterans like him, the game of golf has helped them reclaim their lives.
Twenty years in the U.S. Army and multiple deployments for operations in Panama, the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq left Jordan in chronic pain – physically and psychologically.
“I retired in 2004,” said Jordan, 54, who lives in Lorton, VA. “And my body kept deteriorating. I was dealing with chronic pain in my back, knees and shoulders. I couldn’t continue to exercise, run or jump. It got to the point where I lost interest in physical activity, which made me gain a lot of weight and I got depressed. I didn’t want to be around anyone.”
“Then I started playing golf,” Jordan said. “It helped me regain my self-confidence and find the desire to live again and enjoy life.”It’s for veterans like Jordan that WOTG needs your help to build a facility near the hospital and Warrior Transition Unit at Fort Belvoir Army Base in Virginia. Partnered with Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD), WOTG is planning a six-hole, par 3 course and indoor practice facility dedicated to these wounded and disabled veterans.
