ALL handball players welcome! My intention is to start an annual Military Handball Tournament (like Semper Fi) to be held wherever the Navy takes me. Each tournament will benefit a local military organization and, in this case, it will be the Purdue Veterans & Military Success Center. ALL PROCEEDS will help provide a comprehensive suite of wrap-around support services for students who are veterans, members of the military, or benefit-using family members.
