These photos come from a group of brave men and women currently stationed in Kuwait. It's difficult to explain how much joy it brings seeing our military members smiling because they received some equipment we have shipped to them. What we do for you can never repay what you do for us. Thank you for your selfless service and for keeping all of us safe!

Halfway through Women's History Month, we continue throwing it back to some photos we've received featuring the brave women in our military.

A soldier we shipped golf equipment to recently sent us the amazing gift of a flag flown over Camp Alpha in Bagram, Afghanistan on July 4, 2020.

From day one, we have been lucky enough to receive an outpouring of support from pro sports teams across the country. Today we are throwing it back an entire decade to one of the first major events we took part in: The Miami Marlins Celebrity Golf Classic, which was held this week in 2011. The Marlins organization is committed to making a difference, finding ways to help multiple charities including Bunkers. We will never forget this day—and never forget the Marlins support of our mission to send golf equipment to our troops. #tbt

Eight years ago, our leader Joe Hanna had the honor of being profiled in Golf Digest about the motivation behind starting Bunkers. Though much has changed since this story was first published, our commitment to the brave men and women serving in our military has not.

Four years ago we received these photos from a soldier who was documenting his deployment experience through social media. As we search for how to convey our gratitude to him—and all of our military—we have decided to leave it to our Bunkers Buddies, who shared their words with these brave men and women: "Thank you for serving our country and keeping us safe. You inspire to me to make a difference when I grow up." #TBT

I have 96 golf balls I would like to donate. If you would like them where should i send them too?
Had the pleasure of meeting Joe Hanna this past weekend at the NY State Elks Association. Simple idea blossomed into something very special. Thanks for all you do.
I met a fellow today at PT who told me about this. It's quite interesting to hear 😀how it brings joy to our military troops who say it is a great stress reliever hitting golf balls.
I pick up golf balls from my lawn when I mow. Instead of just giving them away I am going to look into donating them to this organization !
I would like to know where your organization my be located near Laurinburg, NC. Since 2008 I have collected 290 sets of clubs and 115,753 golf balls for our troops. Running out of locations to donate these items but still have a few places left, some only take clubs and no golf balls. e-mail is [email protected] Thanks, Terry Graves
I just wanted to send a shout out to Bunkers in Baghdad! They send golf gear to deployed military members all over the AOR. They sent me and a couple of my coworkers clubs and about 1k golf balls to our deployed address in Turkey! They are pretty awesome! Thanks again!
Wow! What a wonderful organization!
