‘I am one of them’

I am a Green Beret, albeit an older one. I haven't worn my "Green Sponge" in over 40 years. I am also a Camden resident. When it was announced that my fellow Special Forces Association soldiers would be visiting the Revolutionary War Park (on Thursday) I made certain I would be there. It was a bitter-sweet experience.

It will be the first time men and women pros have played their championships on the same course, and many are calling the back-to-back competitions a stroke of genius. Indeed, women pros, who've never garnered as much attention as their male ...
