SPRINGFIELD, VA –
September 11, 2007 – Former “JAG” actress
Karri Turner (Lt. Harriet Sims) and former “Little House on
the Prairie” actor
Matthew Labyorteaux (Albert Ingalls) will be on hand to
support the SemperComm Golf Classic at the Fort Belvoir Golf
Club in Alexandria, VA, on Friday, Sept. 21. Both are
participating in the fundraising tournament as celebrity hosts
and come to the event via one of SemperComm’s major partners,
Stars For Stripes. Stars For Stripes is a nonprofit organization

Turner and Labyorteaux will be playing golf at the event, taking

Matthew is new to the SemperComm team, he and Karri both support
U.S. service members,” said Lara Coffee, SemperComm executive
director. “We’re very happy to have both of them coming to our
event, and thank Stars For Stripes for its continued support.”
