Country crooner Lee Greenwood’s 1984 flag-waving song “God Bless the USA” has stood the test of time, transcended our culture, and served as a bright beacon of hope for Americans following the attacks on 9/11. But this music legend is more than his classic patriotic tune. In fact, he’s made it his mission to bring attention to the troops who fought to protect America in his new role as an ambassador for Disabled American Veterans, a non-profit charity that provides support for America’s soldiers. This year for Veterans Day, the organization has a new initiative called “Keep the Promise” to remind Americans to give back to our veterans who so desperately need our support. Tonight, the country king himself joins us to discuss Disabled American Veterans, their new initiative, and his amazing career.
Disabled American Veterans has served veterans since 1920 and are dedicated to empowering them to lead quality lives with respect and dignity. They provide a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations, and their families, helping more than 1 million veterans in life-changing ways each year.
