You're looking live at the Clubhouse at T-P-C Sawgrass ..The annual military appreciation ceremony is going on. It's always a highlight of the Players Week ...before the tournament starts. Once again this year, active and retired military members and their families get in for free... and much more. Channel 4's Chris Parenteau is joining us live from the course to explain. Chris? 3 3 The crowd is starting to grow behind me as the military appreciation ceremony and Jake Owen concert are getting ready to begin in less than half an hour, but earlier this morning, at the Birdies for the Brave Patriots Outpost honoring the men and women in the service was fully on display. 00-10 NO NAME 13-2040-4649- 56With a new location, near the 16th tee box instead of the 16th fairway, hundreds of military members helped open the place they will be able to relax and get out if the heat during the tournament.Sot 54:26 this place is humongous. As soon as you come in, everyone is thanking us, they thank is for our support and service. I feel at home, like I don't have to worry about anything here.VO During the ceremony, PGA Tour member Nick Watney presented a lifetime membership to Marine ----- who was injured while serving.The two have formed a friendship since ---- caddied for Nick at TPC Boston.Sot 10:27 sometimes we get overlooked, but not with these guys. Nick calls me, checks on me, texts me. We play xbox, so it's just awesome.Sot 11:19 He's just a really special guy. I got to meet him and his family and hear their story. I'm thrilled to be able to do something for him.VO Another tour member, Jerry Kelly, got to perform a reenlistment ceremony for a Navy Sailor. He says that the PGA Tour does a great job of honoring the military members, something Watney agrees with. Sot 11:52 It doesn't feel like enough, but it's nice to do something for them. I think the biggest thing is for the men and women who serve to know they are not forgotten and how much we appreciate them. PGA Tour Tim Finchem said that since 2006, the Tour has raised over $11 million for homefront charities, but he wants to see that number increase, saying that they have done a lot, but nothing they can ever do will be enough to thank the military members and their families for their sacrifices.
