Brought together through golf, but connected through their experiences, two veterans have formed a special bond that can’t be broken.

Ryan Skoglund is a retired Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq after the 9/11 attacks. Now, 30 years old, Skoglund is the director of instruction at Golftec in Burlington, Mass., teaching a man that he admires greatly — Jim Campanna, a fellow Marine who served in the Vietnam War and lost his leg as a 22-year-old.

Despite the age difference, the two bonded instantly, saying that the Marines is a brotherhood. As veterans, golfers and friends the two share a very obvious sense of mutual respect for one another, admitting that “we both went through it, we’re here.”

Check out their special story in the above video.
