Jay Milinichik Obituary, Death –On Tuesday, the festivities at the Fox Den Country Club during Knoxville Open week continued. We played with a few people at the course, including Marine Corps veteran Jay Milinichick, who had a drive as far as the eye can see.
About a year ago, he joined a nonprofit called Folds for Honor—Long Drive for Heroes. They participate in nationwide tours like the Web.com tour to spread information about post-traumatic stress disorder.
According to Milinichick, their mantra is “longer drives, longer lives.”” I want to show people that there is life after service, that there is something bigger than you, and what these web.com guys are doing they may think they’re out here just playing golf, but being out here at the Pro-Am you’re not just playing golf but you’re helping companies and foundations like the folds of honor and a long drive for heroes you’re helping people like me my son is going to grow up, and I want him to know that I am doing my best to make a change.”
Jay went out on the Fox Den course during the Pro-Am spreading the word that veterans and paramilitary personnel do not have to settle for the status quo.
Since leaving the service in 2014 due to health concerns, jay has been on an extraordinary journey. He’s undergone about 23 operations, and his wife and best friend have both committed suicide.
But he does what he does in large part to ensure that the sacrifices made by veterans are not in vain and that those who continue to struggle after service receive the support they require.
