The Veterans Alliance at Texas State (VATS) sponsored its third annual golf tournament on Friday, April 19, at Quail Creek Country Club in San Marcos.
Proceeds from the tournament benefited the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3413, located in San Marcos.
“The VFW has a long history of supporting the surrounding community and providing veterans with a voice in local, state and national government,” Jeremy Casselberry, a Navy veteran and president of VATS, said.
As a student organization, VATS supports student-veterans by providing camaraderie, networking and community resources for achieving academic success. VATS’ outreach to the larger veterans community in San Marcos has similar aims.
“(VATS) hopes to keep this VFW post open so that they can continue to help the community and the veterans of San Marcos,” Casselberry said.
