The Wounded Warrior Project asked if they could fly me out to Scottsdale, AZ, for a few days so I can become a west-coast region Peer Mentor for wounded warriors. I happily said yes. What's there to do in Scottsdale? I'll be there for 5 days!

It's a stone's throw from the grand canyon!! I stayed in Scottsdale when my family took a trip to the canyon. The canyon is beautiful! Also, i've got money and skill, TPC Sawgrass is there. It's a PGA Tour golf course!
