Community and Advocacy

Golf Yankee Six wants to mobilize community members to participate in helping Veterans address their war within when they come back home. We want Veterans to see the size of our team when they look around the room and see Golf Yankee Six shirts. We want them to see shirts in the grocery store, at their local breweries, and where they receive mental health services. By purchasing our shirts, you can help us invest directly into the mental health services our Veterans deserve.
