We proudly announce that The Zellner Foundation has reached the 50-beneficiary Milestone!!! U.S. Navy Veteran Tayden Haile and one of his seven adopted children, fifteen-year-old Sincere, received their golf club sets and first private lesson with PGA Professional Raymond Barr at Jacksonville Golf and Country Club.
Tayden joined the Navy at the age of twenty in 1998. With a few years of college under his belt, he made the transition to military life. He was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, and later Bahrain for a year. Tayden served in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. In his own words: “I had the honor of being a part of the 7th fleet, the first Naval Fleet to respond to the attacks of 9/11. I am now married to my beautiful wife of fifteen years. We have seven adopted children and seven dogs. I spend my time now not serving my country but still serving the community. I am so honored to receive the privilege of learning golf alongside one of my sons. We thank you, Zellner Foundation, for this great opportunity.” We salute Tayden for his service to our nation and hope to see another one of his children become Birdies of Eagles.
