Sentient Jet Reaffirms Support of Veteran Nonprofit Homes For Our Troops Through Sponsorship of Charity Golf Tournament


Premier Private Jet Company to Sponsor 8th
Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company and the inventor of
the Jet Card, is pleased to announce its continued support of Homes
For Our Troops
, a nonprofit organization that builds specially
adapted custom homes for severely injured Veterans, through the
sponsorship of the organization's 8th annual
Charity Golf Tournament
on Monday, August 20th. The
announcement builds upon Sentient Jet's larger awareness campaign in
support of the organization, which began in May with the private jet
company's sponsorship of Kentucky Derby contender Combatant and
continued with sponsorships at the subsequent Preakness and Belmont
Stakes. In addition to the significant media and public attention that
the campaign has generated thus far, Homes For Our Troops has received
nearly $80,000 from those who were inspired to give after learning about
the organization and partnership. With the aim of bringing continued
awareness to the cause and providing valuable resources and funds for
the organization, Sentient Jet's involvement in the golf tournament also
speaks to the company's strong Boston roots and passion for philanthropy.

"Coming off of the success of our Triple Crown campaign, Sentient Jet
was eager to identify another opportunity to further boost the
visibility and reach of Homes For Our Troops, one of the Veteran
community's most effective organizations that continues to inspire us
with the tremendous good they do every day," said Andrew Collins,
president and CEO of Sentient Jet. "As such, we couldn't be happier to
act as a sponsor of this exciting tournament, a role that simultaneously
allows us to celebrate our local Boston community which we so highly

The tournament will take place on Monday, August 20th at the
Walpole Country Club just outside of Boston, Massachusetts and will
welcome several celebrated members of the Veteran community, including
Army Sergeant Patrick Wickens, Marine Sergeant Dustin Johns, Marine
Lance Corporal Hector Luna Rodriguez, Army Specialist Ryan Wilcox, and
Marine Corporal Steven Bultje. Also in attendance will be Homes For Our
Troops Chairman of the Board General (USA, Retired) Richard Cody and
President and CEO Brigadier General (USA, Retired) Tom Landwermeyer.

In addition to providing special gifts for all participating players and
Veterans, Sentient Jet will sponsor two of the tournament's most
charming challenges – the "Hole-in-One" and "Closest to the Pin"
competitions. The private aviation company will gift the Hole-in-One
winner with a $20,000 flight card, with a matching $20,000 direct
donation pledged to Homes For Our Troops, while the Closest to the Pin
winner will receive a Scotty Cameron putter and Sentient Jet golf swag

"We're thrilled to be working with Sentient Jet for this special day of
fun and philanthropy," said Homes For Our Troops President and CEO
Brigadier General (Retired) Tom Landwermeyer. "Sentient Jet has been a
wonderful supporter of Homes For Our Troops. Their commitment to helping
our nations' most severely injured Veterans is paramount to the
continued success of our mission. Our annual golf tournament is one of
our organization's most highly anticipated events of the year. We
appreciate the outstanding support of Sentient Jet as one of the
sponsors of this years' tournament."

Homes For Our Troops builds and donates specially adapted custom homes
nationwide for severely injured post – 9/11 Veterans. Most of these
Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries, and these homes enable
them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.

gone directly to program services for Veterans. Homes For Our Troops

freedom that a donated, specially adapted custom home brings, Veterans
can focus on their recovery and returning to their life's work of
serving others.
