2017 Warrior Open
The Bush Institute’s Warrior Open began in 2011 for United States military personnel seriously wounded or injured since September 11, 2001. Since 2010, more than 140 warriors have participated in the Military Service Initiative’s Team 43 Sports, which include the Warrior Open and the annual W100K bike ride. Many of them are featured in President Bush’s recent book and corresponding exhibit at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, Portraits of Courage: A Commander-in-Chief’s Tribute to America’s Warriors.
This year’s Warrior Open was played at Prestonwood Golf Club in Dallas on Monday, May 22 to honor alumni of Team 43 who have participated in previous Warrior Open tournaments.

"We have to help these vets talk about [PTS]. And peer to peer counseling helps -- we don't know how they feel." Pres. Bush on @dfwticket— TheBushCenter (@TheBushCenter) May 22, 2017
"I don't know if I'd be here without the support system that I have. It's been a transition from uncertainty to clarity." Saul Martinez— TheBushCenter (@TheBushCenter) May 22, 2017
