May 3, 2012

Recently, Golf Academy of America alumnus Chad Pfeifer was featured in an online video series called, "The Faces of Veteran Education." The series is sponsored by the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU).

Mr. Pfeifer, an Army veteran, lost his left leg below the knee due to an IED explosion while serving in Iraq. After including golf in his rehabilitation, he entered Golf Academy of America. He was one of more than 200 military veterans enrolled at GAA's five campuses, and his education has paid off.

In 2011, he won the National Amputee Golf Tournament and the Bush Center Warrior Open.  He now works in the golf industry.
