Mortenson donates Open tickets to military personnel

Mortenson Construction has donated 1,150 tickets to this week’s U.S. Senior Open at The Broadmoor to active United States military personnel, including those with NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), NORTHCOM (United States Northern Command), Peterson Air Force Base, the United States Air Force Academy and Fort Carson. The First Army Division West, the U.S. Army Installation Management Agency, the 4th Infantry Division, the 43rd Area Support Group and the Special Forces Airborne were part of the distribution to Fort Carson.
All of the tickets were given to non-commissioned personnel, and some went to wounded troops and Purple Heart recipients.
“As an active member of the Colorado Springs Community, we thought it was the least we could do,” said Clay Benson, construction executive in Mortenson’s Colorado Spring’s office.
Mortenson Construction is currently working on over $140 million in projects at Fort Carson.
