DynCorp International team members in Kuwait recently participated in the 2015 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Kuwait Chapter Annual Golf Tournament and Troop Appreciation Banquet. Proceeds from the event benefit AUSA Kuwait Chapter’s programs that provide assistance and events for the service men and women serving in Kuwait throughout the year.
The event was held March 22, 2015, at the Sahara Golf Course in Mubarak Al-Kabeer, Kuwait. DI team members joined the more than 100 service personnel in attendance.
“We are proud to be able to support the U.S. Military personnel here in the Gulf region,” said Ken Pitcher, DynCorp International deputy project manager.
The Golf Tournament provides U.S. service members with a recreational opportunity outside of the military camps, and a relaxed atmosphere in which to talk and enjoy time with their leaders.
AUSA Kuwait Chapter
AUSA Kuwait Chapter 8601 was established in 2006 and is the first AUSA Chapter established in a “Theater of Operations”. The Chapter was named “Best Overseas Chapter” by the National Association of the United States Army in 2014, 2011 and 2010.
The Chapter conducts many projects in support of U.S. Military and Coalition personnel located in Kuwait, including an American Thanksgiving Day celebration and beach recreation day for military personnel each November.
Each year, the Kuwait Chapter provides the Kuwait Soldier of the Year and Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year with dress uniforms and airfare to the AUSA National Convention in Washington, D.C.
