Esperanza En Escalante (EEE) is a local organization that exists to provide housing, social services, programs and transportation to assist a Veteran's transition into everyday life. To learn more about EEE click here. One of the ways the Tucson Chapter supports EEE is by sponsoring a hole in their annual golf tournament and having members participate in the tournament. Shown to the right are Colonel (retired) Tom Owens and Major (retired) Randy Phelps who participated in the EEE golf tournament, held 11 November 2021.
