After 16 years of war, the number of veterans (including the National Guard and Reservists) with multiple tours of combat duty is the largest in modern American history. Today, many of those who have served are unemployed, homeless, uninsured and struggling to provide for their families.
Some of the charity recipients of the event include Headstrong, Psych Armor, The Elizabeth Dole Foundation, Hope For The Warriors and Warrior Canine Connection, all made possible by presentation sponsor The Independence Fund and other corporate sponsors including American Airlines, Johnson & Johnson, Walgreens, the National Football League, Broadridge and TIBCO, with text-to-donate provided by AT&T.
"The Legendary Soul Man" Sam Moore recently released his latest album. "Sam Moore: An American Patriot" is available for purchase. The album was inspired by Moore's performance of "America the Beautiful" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where his dear friend and inspiration, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., stood 53 years earlier and delivered his famous speech.
Moore said he believes music is the universal language that knows no boundary or color, and was the best way for him to take a stand and make an impact in helping to bring the country he loves back together.
