Hosted by the Warrior Battalion Army ROTC Alumni Association, the tournament was organized with the help of ROTC students. Seniors led committees overseeing various aspects, from logistics to entertainment, while juniors focused on fundraising and storytelling, honoring each Fallen Warrior at dedicated holes throughout the golf course. As golfers teed off, juniors recounted the valiant deeds of the Fallen Warriors, ensuring their legacies lived on.

The banquet that followed celebrated their memory, with various prizes, which will contribute toward the alumni association’s funds for future events and the upkeep of the Fallen Warrior Memorial.

“On behalf of class 1974…I wish this class the joys and benefits from the program, and I hope they can say that 50 years from now,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) James Hirai.

Organizers thanked their sponsors, volunteers and participants, who each played a vital role in the tournament’s success.
