This group of brave men and women currently serving overseas wanted us to thank all our Bunkers Buddies who took time to draw them pictures and make cards that we recently sent with some clubs and balls. Underneath those masks, we know they are smiling! #MilitaryMonday

It’s hard to believe 12 years have passed since Bunkers began! In that time—a whopping total of 144 months, 4,380 days, and 105,120 hours—we have shipped 11.4 million golf balls and 970,000 golf clubs to 70 countries around the world.

As we celebrate our birthday, we would like to thank you for your endless support that allows us to continue our mission of providing "a slice of home" to our troops. We cannot thank our great supporters enough, like Callaway Golf, Topgolf, ADPRO Sports, Goldberg Segalla, and Official Loudmouth Golf (just to name a few). Thank you for all you have done for us—and our troops and vets—over the years. We look forward to working with all of our Bunkers Buddies and volunteers for years to come to help better the lives of our brave men and women around the world.

Charlie – thank you for all you have done for us and all you are doing for others.

As the pandemic continues to affect lives around the world, we have been receiving requests for equipment from troops operating under lockdown and quarantine. We are happy to share these photos we just received, which these men and women described as their "own little patch of green in our endless sand trap.”

We couldn't be more proud to help you experience a slice of home—and more importantly—couldn't be more proud of all you're doing to keep us safe. #MilitaryMonday

There's truly nothing better than seeing our best and bravest with smiles on their faces as they prepare to have some fun with equipment we have sent to them. Today, and every day, we thank them for all they do to ensure our freedom—and thank our supporters for making our mission possible.

"I can’t thank Bunkers in Baghdad enough for allowing myself and so many others to enjoy a few moments of normalcy during our deployment. Being able to smack a few down range can sure make a difference in an environment riddled with stress. You guys are awesome!"

We have a wonderful way to start our week with this note and these photos from a soldier who just received some equipment from us. On this #MilitaryMonday, we hope all of our troops—both past and present—understand how much we appreciate their sacrifices in the name of freedom. We can never thank you enough!

Starting this #MilitaryMonday off by sharing some photos we just received from a soldier in Kuwait. Thanks to our friends at Topgolf—and with a little help from some of our Bunkers Buddies—we were able to send some golf equipment to our best and bravest. As always, we cannot thank these men and women for all they do for us!

We have all been living life under different circumstances the past few months—and that includes Bunkers. As this story from News 4 WIVB Buffalo shows, our president Joe Hanna has adapted to our current situation and taken on an even bigger role in order to keep our mission going strong.

Bunkers in Baghdad hits major milestone amid COVID-19 pandemic

We were honored to be a part of WGRZ - Channel 2, Buffalo's "Celebrate WNY" series as they covered Bunkers recent milestone of sending our 11 millionth golf ball to our troops. We have always taken pride in providing a slice of home to our active military members, veterans, and warriors—and as this clip shows, this year holds extra significance.

The Buffalo-based charity has donated 11 million golf balls to troops serving overseas over the last 11 years.

Bunkers has always been about offering our troops and veterans a chance at relaxation, fun, and a reminder of the simple pleasures of home. That's why we're proud to announce we recently hit the milestone of sending our 11 millionth golf ball to our brave men and women throughout the world.

Even more meaningful than this milestone, though, are the recent letters of thanks that Bunkers has received from troops overseas, who have attested that the charity’s shipments over the past few months have offered not only a needed outlet for relaxation, but a reminder that while we have faced unprecedented challenges at home, they are not forgotten.

We would like to acknowledge all of our sponsors who help make this possible. Our sincerest thanks goes out to Callaway Golf, Topgolf, the Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Sabres, Official Loudmouth Golf, DICK'S Sporting Goods, ADPRO Sports, and Goldberg Segalla (to name just a few) and to all of our Bunkers Buddies and volunteers. We wouldn't be here without you. Here's to the next million!

America's independence was won 244 years ago and we understand not a day has gone by since where the bravest men and women in our country aren't fighting to keep us free. To all of our current service members, our courageous veterans and warriors, and the military families supporting you all every step of the way—we thank you and we salute you. Happy Independence Day.

Today we're thinking of all our Bunkers Buddies who are wrapping up their school years under atypical circumstances. The support of students and teachers from nearly 900 schools across the country is something we are so grateful to have. We hope all of our Buddies are staying safe and healthy. We'll see you soon! #tbt

In honor of this weekend's SpaceX launch, we wanted to throw it back to one of our most memorable photos when members of the Air Force’s U-2 program sent this along.

Today is #NationalK9VeteransDay – a day we are proud to commemorate the service and sacrifices of American military dogs. The U.S. K9 Corps were created on March 13, 1942 and since that day, we have been lucky enough to have man's best friend protect us as part of the military.

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!
