War Hero and Amateur Golfer Staff Sergeant Nick Bradley Sponsored by Howell Instruments, Inc. to Play in the PGA Crowne Plaza Invitational Alongside Professionals and Celebrities at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth

Howell Instruments, together with Military Warriors Support Foundation, is sponsoring a talented amateur golfer and wounded hero, Air Force Staff Sergeant Nicholas Bradley to play with professionals and celebrities in the Crowne Plaza Colonial Invitational Pro-Am Tournament on May 22 at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth.

Although barely 30 years old, phenomenally talented amateur golfer Nicholas Bradley has experienced a lifetime, having bravely served his country and comrades over nearly a decade, sacrificed much, and returned home to build his life back again. Devastatingly injured while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Nicholas drew upon his faith in family, an indomitable positive attitude, and newly-found passion for golf as a form of rehabilitation and return to normalcy. Next week, with Howell’s sponsorship, he will get a once in a lifetime opportunity as an amateur golfer to play in the Pro-Am alongside the PGA’s best.

Howell Chief Executive Officer, Arthur “Shep” Brown, says, “I retired from the military before coming to work for Howell, and given that our company has been in business over 60 years with all branches of the military, I saw it as an excellent opportunity for us to give back to the military community. Our founder, John Howell, was a decorated WWII pilot, and avid amateur golfer, and we’ve participated the Colonial Pro-Am since the 1960’s. We are extremely proud and honored that Staff Sergeant Nicholas Bradley will represent Howell this year.”

“Our foundation is thrilled at this new partnership with Howell and the opportunity to change the life of one of our Heroes,” said Lt. General Leroy Sisco (U.S.A., Ret), Chief Executive Officer and founder of the Military Warriors Support Foundation.
