Bush hosts Warrior Open golf tournament

Former President George W. Bush welcomed wounded warriors back to his annual golf tournament.

The Warrior Open is being held this week at the Las Colinas Country Club in Irving.

Retired Army Col. Miguel Howe, who runs the Military Service Initiative at the Bush Institute, joined Good Day to talk about the event.

“It’s a great opportunity for Pres. Bush, the community and the rest of America to honor the service, sacrifice, resilience and the continued leadership of the men and women who have worn the uniform,” he said.

Col. Howe said the Warrior Open is more than just a golf tournament; it’s about fostering the continued leadership and service for veterans.

“The same men and women who have been so successful on the battle field and protecting our country can lead our country, our companies, our businesses and our communities. And that’s one of the things that Pres. Bush is focused on here is how we as communities and businesses can help them transition so that they can continue to lead and serve in new and meaningful ways as civilians,” he said.
