This event has such a meaningful purpose. Here’s a sample of what it means to our participants.
“I want to thank you and all the sponsors for a great day. I went on the trip year before last and had a great time and looked forward to going this year. I was unable to participate last year. I am a Vietnam era veteran and can remember those returning from Vietnam were told not to wear your uniform when you returned to California because we would be spit on and harassed by the protesters. It was heartwarming to be received as we were yesterday and be treated the way we were. Again I thank all those who had a part in making this a great day for me and the others like me. With my disabilities there are many things I can no longer do. But this Hearts for Hero’s, I look forward too and really have a good time with all who are involved. Thanks for what you do.” Harry Slaughter
