Yet another success: 2015 MCRA Golf Tournament!

Early in the morning on August 7, 2015, golfers and supporters gathered at the Ft. Belvoir golf course to participate in this year’s MCRA annual golf tournament in partnership with the Semper Fi Fund.

The annual golf tournament has been a hallmark event for the MCRA for many years and has contributed significant donations, which have supported our nation’s wounded warriors.  This year, corporate sponsorship, participation, and donations were at an all time high!

Additionally, the Marine Corps Reserve Association was proud to host the First Lady of the Marine Corps, Ellyn Dunford. (pictured below 3rd from the left)
