For Vietnam vet, amputee golf is 'uplifting' time of togetherness

The Source

During the Vietnam War, Peter Fenn of the Town of Aurora was a medic and, like many American service members, was exposed to dangerously high levels of Agent Orange. More than 30 years later, complications from that exposure forced doctors to amputate his left leg below the knee.

A lifelong lover of golf, Fenn quickly became involved with the Eastern Amputee Golf Association, which allows amputees from throughout the region to network and play the game together.

"At least for a day, the only handicap we really have to deal with is the one on the scorecard."
