You Can Help Us Make A Difference
Right before he passed away I said to my father, “I’m going to continue your advocacy for veterans.” I had no idea what that meant at that time. None. And to be honest, for the next couple of years, nothing really big happened. Small things on small scales, helping out here and there. Then, with Fairway I got involved with Louise Thaxton. She started the American Warrior Initiative and Fairway started giving away houses all over the country to wounded veterans. We took part in that and were able to give a veteran a home mortgage free, no mortgage payment, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. That was the first time that it was like, “Dad, that’s what I meant.” Then we did a couple other events and gave away a trip to a Veteran and his family to Disney all expenses paid for. Another big one was hosting a private movie viewing at the local movie theater to watch Thank You For Your Service to bring awareness to the terrible situations our Veterans are put in when they come back home. I am not a Veteran, but I am an American Patriot. This is our way to give back and recognize their sacrifice.
