Aberdeen, NC -- (SBWire) -- 12/04/2017 --On Friday, Nov. 3, Blanton's Air, Plumbing & Electric hosted the second annual Troops to Trades Golf Tournament at Gates Four Golf & Country Club. The tournament drew a terrific turnout with more than 20 teams participating. All proceeds go directly to the Troops to Trades program and will be used for scholarships.

Troops to Trades helps honorably discharged veterans, National Guard members and Reserve members of the U.S. Armed Services transition to rewarding careers. Members receive career training in the skilled trades of plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning. Veterans can take the skills they learned in the military and apply them in rewarding, high-demand fields. When Blanton's isn't helping homeowners with heating and cooling repairs in Pinehurst, NC, and surrounding areas, the company is helping veterans begin successful careers.

Blanton's was founded by Nathan Coolidge Blanton, a U.S. Army veteran who served from 1943-1945. Today, the company continues to honor its own military history by providing veterans with valuable career opportunities. Many of Blanton's employees have prior military experience—so many, in fact, that the company has a page on its website featuring the veterans on its team and providing helpful information for veterans. Apart from its partnership with Troops to Trades, Blanton's offers special military promotions and discounts on a regular basis.

"Hosting the Troops to Trades Golf Tournament was an honor and another way we could give back to our veterans," said owner Will Blanton. "Whether it's raising funds in the community or offering career opportunities, we will always support the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much for us."
