America wants you!

The Quicken Loans National, held on the pristine grounds of Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md., is one of the season’s premier tournaments. It allows spectators, volunteers and players to pay homage to the United States military, while enjoying some of the world’s best golf. Buy your tickets at www.QLNational.com, and discover all the ways you can support our military throughout the tournament.

Here are some of the top ways you can support the military throughout the Quicken Loans National.

1.   First, you can visit the We Salute Our Heroes Tribute Wall, an installation supported by the Pentagon Federal Credit Union. This wall is a gesture of collective appreciation for the men and women of the United States military, and spectators can visit the wall at any time, write a quick “thank you” or a longer message of appreciation, and then, sign their names. In fact, the We Salute Our Heroes Tribute Wall was such a hit last year that all participants of the tournament — spectators, volunteers, caddies and players — filled up four large canvases with words of appreciation and support. 

2.   The USO Zone, also located at the main entrance of the Quicken Loans National, is a fantastic place for spectators to visit. At the USO Zone, spectators can engage themselves in getting to know numerous and diverse methods of sustaining support for the men and women of our armed services. 

3.   To jump start the tournament’s military appreciation initiative, Tiger Woods will host the Quicken Loans National Patriotic Opening Ceremonies on the first tee at Congressional on Wednesday, June 25, at 11 a.m. This event will feature the singing of the National Anthem by the U.S. Army Chorus Quartet and remarks from Rick Singer, president and CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation, Steve Sands from the Golf Channel, Captain Jason Haag of K9s for Warriors and Tiger himself. 

Then Captain Haag and Captain Myrick of K9s for Warriors will tee up and hit the first shots of the tournament. These opening ceremonies are yet another way to support the military through the Quicken Loans National and yet another reason why you should buy your tickets here. Head on over to Congressional to join fellow golf enthusiasts in supporting the United States military!
