The Santa Rosa County Vets to VA Clinics program will provide transportation for Santa Rosa County resident veterans to the VA clinic in Pensacola for health care beginning this summer.   District 3 Commissioner and Vets to VA Clinics Chairman Don Salter explains, “For many of our veterans, VA is their only health care, yet so many do not have the resources or ability to obtain transportation on their own. Business leaders, concerned citizens and fellow veterans have come together to continue to honor our Santa Rosa County veterans by creating this free of charge, transportation program from their home to the VA clinic.” Participation in the golf tournament and an additional contribution/sponsorship to this program will help make this program a success and continue to provide transportation for our veterans for many years to come.

Donations in any amount can also be made directly to the Vets to VA Clinics, Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial, at 5191 C Willing St, Milton , FL 32570 . All donations are tax deductible.
