The Thomas J. Valentine Memorial Fund established in 2010, is a tribute to the memory of USN SOCS Tom Valentine who was a SEAL. Through CharitySmith The Thomas J. Valentine Memorial Fund is now an established non-profit memorial fund (EIN #87-0636433) and supports the Navy SEAL Foundation.
This year’s Tommy V Challenge will support some of the families that will be hitting the 10 year mark: Neil Roberts (3/4/2002) and Matt Bourgeois (3/28/2002). Unfortunately, many of the opportunities and benevolent groups that exist today to help families of fallen SEALs did not exist in 2002 and most of the current programs are not retroactive to these families. It is the intent of the Tommy V Challenge IV to provided financial support to these families. Additionally, since January of 2012 we have lost two more men, and the Tommy V Challenge will be supporting these families as well.
AS last year, the Tommy V Challenge will consist of SKEET & GOLF TOURNAMENTS and they will be held at the NAS Oceana & Aeropines Golf Course. The SKEET Tournament is Thursday, October 25, 2012 ($100 per person | $450 per team) and the GOLF Tournament is Friday, October 26, 2012 ($175 per person | $575 per team?).
I plan on returning from AUSA in time to participate and I hope to see some of you there as well. Visit tommyv.us to register and entry closes 15 October. Entry fee includes range fee, clays, shells, shirt, visor, food, after-party and a 2012 Tommy V Challenge Coin.
The Skeet Tournament is limited to 50 shooters.
