KYIV, Ukraine and WASHINGTON, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The Borderlands Foundation is proud to announce the inaugural U.S.-Ukraine Veterans' Charity Golf Tournament, to be held on 7 June at the prestigious Andrews Air Force Base Golf Course. General David Petraeus, US Army (Ret.), the former Director of the CIA and Commander of Coalition Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, will attend as the Guest of Honor and share his thoughts in the War in Ukraine and geopolitics at the Awards Dinner Gala.

This is the inaugural tournament of a planned yearly event. The Borderlands Foundation will host this multipurpose event to unite top defense companies, political, business, and nonprofit leaders, as well veterans from both Ukraine and the United States. It will serve as a platform for fostering closer ties between the two Veterans and Defense Communities, allow for exchanging ideas, and supporting the heroic veterans of Ukraine dealing with issues that stem from their combat experience.

All proceeds from this golf tournament will go to the Borderlands Foundation whose mission is to "Make Sure Ukraine's Heroes are Never Forgotten."

General Petraeus will play a key role in this event.

Cook, where they will discuss the war in Ukraine, veteran care, and U.S. veterans' role in supporting their Ukrainian counterparts.

"We stand united with the valiant men and women who served their nations with honor. This event underscores our unwavering commitment to supporting our veterans and our fellow Ukrainian veterans. Supporting the causes advanced by the gathering will be a true honor." - General David Petraeus
