Chicago Soldiers has selected Orland Park resident Phil Bell as its 2019 recipient. United States Army veteran Phil Bell and his wife, Amy, live in Orland Park with their three dogs. Phil was seriously injured from an IED blast in 2006. To this day, Phil struggles from the explosion with shrapnel which heavily damaged his body and caused brain damage.

On Saturday, Aug. 19, 100 percent of the proceeds from the annual Chicago Soldiers golf outing are to be given to Phil.

Dan Drew, an Orland Park resident and father of four children, founded Chicago Soldiers with his wife, Janelle, in 2011. Chicago Soldiers is a not-for-profit organization.

The outing is set to begin at 8 a.m. It is to be followed by the Patriotic Party at 1 p.m. It takes place at Meadows Golf Course in Blue Island
