General Michael W. Hagee, USMC (Ret), 33rd Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps and President and CEO of the Admiral Nimitz Foundation led the charge both on the field and on the Boot Ranch golf course (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg6qi5wFdug), as attendees from the Fredericksburg community and beyond enjoyed spectacular weather, challenging rounds and surprise flyovers. Dotting the fairways were golfers, soldiers, and guns, jeeps, and other World War II era military equipment and vehicles from the National Museum of the Pacific War's private collection, making this one of the most unique golf tournaments held anywhere.

Todd Huizinga, Boot Ranch's director of operations, commented: "Hosting the Annual Nimitz Golf Classic has become a favorite tradition at Boot Ranch.  Our members and staff look forward to welcoming the Fredericksburg and Hill Country community as well as golfers from around the country who continue to make this important fundraiser for our servicemen and servicewomen a success."

The Admiral Nimitz Foundation and its staff plan, finance and run the tournament to support the National Museum of the Pacific War and benefit returning veterans, wounded warriors and military personnel. The Foundation donates a portion of the proceeds to a co-beneficiary chosen from non-profits working with wounded and recovering military service personnel at the San Antonio Military Medical Center. The co-beneficiaries to date have been the Military Warrior Support Foundation (2010), Operation Comfort (2011), Operation Military Embrace (2012), Wounded Warrior Outdoors (2013) and Combat Marine Outdoors (2014).

Boot Ranch will host the 6th Annual Nimitz Golf Classic on Friday, June 12, 2015.  To register for the tournament, please contact Mrs. Marty Kaderli at (830) 997-8600 x204 or Email.
