The Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs announced on the 29th that it will hold a ceremony at 88CC Lawn Square under the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, at 11 a.m. on the 30th.
Park Min-ji, the granddaughter of Park Yoo-hee, a retired military police officer, and a veteran family member, is a former golf dreamer scholarship student who received 88CC support for three years from 2014 to 2016. He developed his dream of becoming a golf empress with various support as a teenager and is now recognized as a player with the modifier “the trend.”
He also played in the Korea Ladies Professional Golf Association (KLPGA) as a member of NH Investment & Securities and was selected as a KLPGA promotional model for the second consecutive year.
In particular, Park Min-ji will be appointed as a “first-class veteran ambassador” and will also serve as a mentor to Choi Eui-young (14), a child of the late sergeant Choi Jung-hwan, a Cheonan warship, who was selected as an 88CC golf dream scholarship student.
To this end, following the appointment ceremony, Park Min-ji and Choi Eui-young will also hold a “Heroes Family Program Mentor-Menti Alliance Event.”
Park Min-ji said, “It is a great honor to be selected as a top veteran ambassador by the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs, and we will do our best to ensure that those who sacrificed for the country as golfers receive respect and respect.”
Park Min-sik, head of the Veterans Affairs Ministry, said, “It is very meaningful that Park Min-ji, a former 88CC Dream Tree Scholarship Student and a veteran family member, will serve as a top veteran ambassador. In particular, I think it is very meaningful that the first step was to become a mentor for Choi Eui-young, a child of the Cheonan’s fallen soldiers.”
