HONOR RESPECT & DIGNITY ALWAYS.
This organiztion began completely by accident.
As the Volunteer Facilitator for another project, CHRISTMAS ON THE MALL, AVON PARK, FL, I am resposible for the annual holiday light display on Main Street.
My self & my volunteers help brighten the spirits of everyone who visits during the holidays.
In 2014, I lost my hero, my mentor, my favorite Marine, My Dad.
When the time came for Christmas on the Mall 2014 to be put together, I offered to include the MONUMENT MALL (Veterans Square) to honor our Armed Forces.  I was informed that another organization had volunteered to create a display.  I was pleased that I would be able to have a place to commune & pay respects to my father & all of the men and women who give so much.
Unfortunately, due to miscommunications, the tribute did not take place.
I was disappointed.
I then decided that I would find a way to make Veterans Square my mission for 2015.
With $ 0 Funds, I began raising money to hold an event  to raise enough money to make Veterans square happen. THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS.
Though very successful, we did not reach our goal, and so BATTLE OF THE BANDS, PART 2.
WE RACHED OUR GOAL, AND OUR PLANS WENT FORWARD.
With all of the positive support we have recieved, we then decided to become a non-profit that will benefit local Veterans Projects and Charities.
Along with Maintaining the Veterans Square, we will be picking 3 Charities each year that will benefit. from our fund raising efforts.
Our first event  of  the 2016 season is VET JAM MUSIC FEST.
I hope you will join us in doing our small part to help our veterans.
