Local Spotlight Local 150 Raises 0,000 for Military Families Proceeds from annual golf event supports SEAL Family Foundation LOCAL 150’S CHARITY golf fundraiser helped raise 0,000 for the Navy SEAL Family Foundation at the James M. Sweeney Classic in August. The event hosted more than 500 golfers across four golf courses in Lemont, Illinois and the check was presented to retired SEAL Captain Mike Argo, who serves on the SEAL Family Foundation’s Board of Directors. The event brought together a cross-section of workers, business leaders, elected officials and military families. “The union construction industry is proud to support military families,” said IUOE Vice President and Local 150 President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney. “Veterans are a big part of the union construction industry, and we are proud to welcome returning veterans to our industry with open arms. It is an honor to be come together and give back to those who have sacrificed so much for us.” Congressional Medal of Honor recipient and active Navy SEAL Ed Byers, Jr. was present to thank supporters and share the importance of the charity’s work for military families. The SEAL Family Foundation focuses on creating individual and family readiness through an array of programs specifically targeted to assist the Naval Special Warfare community in maintaining a resilient, sustainable, and healthy force. U.S. Navy SEALs ability to stay ready determines the success of every mission; part of their job is to facilitate that state of readiness at home by ensuring every Naval Special Warfare service member knows their family is, and will be, taken care of. 22 INTERNATIONAL OPERATING ENGINEER [above] IUOE Vice President and Local 150 President-Business Manager James M.
