Happy Birthday Mother Green & Happy Veterans Day to All the Brave Men and Women Who Serve Our Country

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (November 10, 2022) – PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons is a U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam War Veteran and a recipient of the Purple Heart Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, and Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. As a veteran owned company, PXG is proud to pay tribute to our nation’s finest and commemorate the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Birthday and Veterans Day this holiday season.

Standing apart from other military branches, the U.S. Marine Corps is the only branch of service to commemorate its birthday. In honor of its 247th year, and in celebration of Veterans Day, Parsons has released his annual U.S. Marine Corps Birthday Salute.

Parsons has long made his military roots a cornerstone of his businesses and philanthropy. For the eleventh consecutive year, The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation and PXG are honoring these anniversaries by partnering with Semper Fi & America’s Fund (The Fund) to launch the annual Double Down for Veterans Match Campaign. Issuing the challenge during his tribute video, Parsons announced the companies will once again match dollar-for-dollar donations made to The Fund up to $10 million.

Shedding light on PTSD, the moving address reshares Parsons’ personal experience in the Vietnam War and the impact the debilitating disease has had on him, his family, and so many other great American heroes.

“Casualties that occur on the battlefield are both seen and unseen, especially when it comes to PTSD,” said PXG Founder & CEO Bob Parsons. “The Fund ensures combat wounded, critically ill, and injured service members, veterans, and their families have the support and financial assistance needed to help heal and move toward lifelong recovery. It’s an important mission and one I’m proud to support with a 10 million dollar match this year.”

To further honor the upcoming anniversaries and salute America’s military service members, PXG is pleased to release its first official licensed USMC® branded hat. Made in the USA from USA-sourced fabric, the PXG X USMCTM Hat proudly showcases the branch’s logo – a symbol of strength and leadership – front and center in this all-new design. Hats will be available for purchase online and in-store starting on November 14, 2022.

PXG will also host a special Veterans Day event at PXG Houston on November 12, 2022. The company invites all active duty and military veterans to attend the holiday celebration. Guests will gain exclusive early access to the PXG X USMC Hat, view PXG Apparel’s new Heroes Collection, and enjoy on-site club customizations, prizes, All-American BBQ, and more.

From its MOS-inspired club naming convention and military iconography incorporated in its club and apparel designs to a focus on serving our nation’s finest, PXG is proud to be a veteran owned, American company. To learn more about PXG, visit www.pxg.com
