1. Nominate a Hometown Hero Online & Donate Wish List Items at Victory Motorcycle Dealers:

~Drop off donated items and receive a free Victory Military Salute pin.
~Nominate a true Hometown Hero with your own video that tells us why he or she is special.
~Vote for the video of your favorite hero, and the Hometown Hero with the most votes will receive a free Victory motorcycle!

    Dear Friends, Happy veteran’s day!!

    My family and i simply planned to wish America’s twenty-five million veterans a very happy Veterans Day. Also lets me quote veteran’s day quote which I actually like:

    ““Where there are too many policemen, there is no liberty. Where there are too many soldiers, there is no peace. Where there are too many lawyers, there is no justice.” -Lyn Yutang”. . .

    In case you actually have got to have info on Veteran’s Day parties, special discounts, it’s The historical past, movies and more and more, Military.com contains an awesome on-line repository with everything else to assist. .

  3. What a wonderful Website and cause! Thank you for all you do! (I blogged about this site today at: http://singleagainonlinediary.blogspot.com/2010/11/kindness-for-troops-and-veterans.html

    Happy Veteran’s Day!
