WHILE MUCH OF THE ATTENTION AT THE TRAVELERS CHAMPIONSHIP IS ON áGOLFá… THE TOURNAMENT IS ‘SALUTING’ SOME OF THEIR BIGGEST FANS… TONIGHT… NEWS 8 PHOTOGRAPHER TOM PARENT…GIVES US A AT HOW THE PATRIOTS’ OUTPOST IS HELPING MILITARY PERSONNEL AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE MILITARY OUTPOST WAS STARTED SO THAT WE COULD APPRECIATE MILITARY FOLKS WHO AROUND THE WORLD WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY…8 YEARS AGO, SAINT FRANCIS WAS ASKED TO SPONSOR THIS VENUE AND WE WERE SO EXCITED TO BE A PART OF IT.THEY COME IN HERE AND GET A VENUE WHERE WE PROVIDE REFRESHMENTS.. A LITTLE AIR CONDITIONING…WE HAVE PEOPLE FROM WWII… WE HAVE VIETNAM VETS, DESERT STORM VETS WHO COME IN HERE… THEY CAN COME IN AND CONNECT WITH EACH OTHER. WE ALSO HAVE OPERATION RECOGNIZE WHICH IS ANOTHER ASPECT THAT WE’RE THRILLED ABOUT THIS YEAR…PEOPLE CAN GO INTO A LITTLE PHOTO BOOTH AND DO A LITTLE PHOTO OR VIDEO OR PHOTO, AND THOSE PHOTOS WILL BE SENT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD TO MILITARY BASES SHOW THE APPRECIATION FROM HERE TO EVERYWHERE OPERATION RECOGNIZE… IS IN THE FAN ZONE WE HAVE A BOOTH, AND WE ALSO HAVE ONE ON THE 15TH HOLE…WE HAVE ALSO ADDED A VVIEWING STATION. WE WANTED ANOTHER VENUE THAT COULD BRING THEM CLOSER TO THE VIEWING EXPERIENCE SO WE HAVE AT LEAST 50 TO 60 SEATS WHERE PEOPLE CAN WATCH OUT ON THE 18TH HOLE. IT’S I THINK AN AMAZING STAEMENT AS TO HOW IMPORTANT VETERANS ARE…AND I;’M NOT USED TO SEEING VETERATNS GETTING RECOGNIZED AND ACKNOWLEDGED IN SUCH A GREAT MANNER. THE ONLY THAT THAT WOULD BE BETTER IS IF I WAS OUT THERE PLAYINGWE’VE HAD PEOPLE OUT THERE ALL DAY LONG, PEOPLE ARE REALLY THRILLED TO BE HERE. 3 SENIOR METEOROLOGIST FRED CAMPAGNA IS LIVE TONIGHT AT THE TRAVELERS CHAMPIONSHIP.
