(KAIR)--A veteran from Horton has been awarded the opportunity to compete at the national level at the 2021 Veteran Golfers Association Championship in Newark, New Jersey next week.

Retired Army Sgt. Charles “ Chuck” May II is a Purple Heart recipient, having been wounded while serving in Iraq.

Recently winning regionals, May will compete in the VGA national championship tournament September 12th-15th.
