“LPS for Vets” is an annual golf fundraising event that started a decade ago by LPS and friends to raise funds and awareness for local organizations dedicated to improving the lives of our Veterans.
On Saturday June 11, 2016 Logistics Planning Services will be conducting its 14th Annual Charity Golf Classic at White Eagle Golf Club in Hudson, WI to benefit our military veterans and specifically to benefit the Minneapolis VA Brain Sciences Center in its Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) research. Funds raised by this event are pledged to the breakthrough research being conducted by Dr. Georgopoulos (VA Clinic) and Dr. Engdahl (University of MN) in their work to help soldiers and all victims of PTSD.
The Oscar nominated movie “American Sniper’ provided insight into the subtle yet dramatic impact that PTSD has on soldiers and studies are showing that PTSD is impacting 1 in every 5 military personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to the neuroscience breakthroughs of Drs. Georgopoulos and Engdahl, they can diagnose PTSD with 97% accuracy and as a result, in the past two years alone, there has been a 50% increase in military personnel being diagnosed and helped.
While each year the LPS Charity Golf event has been a sell-out and a fun and experience for all participants, its purpose is serious. We thank everyone sincerely for their many years of support to make this event a memorable experience year after year!
