Keesler Federal Credit Union Annual Golf Tournament

Raises $25K To Help Local Wounded Veterans  


GULFPORT, Miss. – August  2017– Keesler Federal Credit Union hosted its 6th Annual “Eagles Under The Oaks” Golf Tournament at The Oaks Golf Club in Pass Christian, MS on Tuesday, May 23, 2017. This much anticipated yearly event, in partnership with military personnel and sponsors, benefits the Combat Wounded Veterans of South Mississippi (CWVSM), a non-profit organization established to support the many physically and psychologically combat-disabled heroes who reside on the Gulf Coast.

Boasting a record turnout with 33 teams of golfers hitting the links, this year’s tournament succeeded in raising a total of $25,000 for CWVSM. “Eagles Under The Oaks is truly one of the most meaningful events on our calendar,” said Andy Swoger, Keesler Federal Credit Union President and CEO.  “On behalf of everyone in our organization, it is an honor to have this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the wounded warriors in our community. We are grateful each and every day for their valiant service and sacrifices,” Swoger continued. 

Founded in 2011 by Donna
Anderson, a nurse working for Keesler Medical Center as a Wounded Warrior Case Manager, Combat Wounded Veterans of South Mississippi (CWVSM) is the first organization of its kind in the area that is run and maintained locally. CWVSM helps veterans with combat-related disabilities bridge the difficult transition between military and civilian life by improving lines of communication and providing access to resources and financial assistance.
