The Vets for Freedom National Heroes Tour is about going coast-to-coast to generate support for our troops, highlight their successes and rally the country to complete the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
You will be able to meet and honor some real American heroes: David Bellavia, author of House to House, recipient of the Silver Star, and nominee for the Medal of Honor; Marcus Luttrell, recipient of the Navy Cross and author of the New York Times best-selling book Lone Survivor; and Steve Russell, recipient of the Bronze Star medal with Valor Device for his actions in Iraq, including leading the battalion responsible for the capture of Saddam Hussein.
Not only are we raising awareness and support for the mission during the National Heroes Tour, we want to say Thank You to the military community and their families.
