"...our heartfelt thanks go out to all those who have served and sacrificed..."
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Howell Instruments is sponsoring a talented amateur golfer and wounded hero, Air Force SSgt. Nicholas Bradley to play with professionals and celebrities in the Crowne Plaza Colonial Invitational Pro-Am Tournament next Wednesday, May 21 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 CEO, 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. 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 SSgt. Nicholas Bradley will represent Howell this year, and our heart-felt thanks go out to all those who have served and sacrificed, and especially those still on the front lines defending our freedom.”
