The 2013 Warrior Open, a competitive 36-hole golf tournament in the Dallas area, kicked off this morning with the Pledge of Allegiance and a performance of “America the Beautiful” by “The Voice” finalists Zach and Colton Swon.

The Warrior Open, held every fall, honors U.S. service members wounded in the global war on terror.

This year, President Bush offered to answer questions posted on Twitter with the #Ask43 hashtag.

It was a particularly good day for Sgt. Tim Gaestel, who received the Purple Heart for injuries sustained from a roadside bomb in Iraq.
