“And I learned early in my life that only two things protected America, the grace of Almighty God and the United States Military. It was that way then, it is that way now and will forever be that way as long as America remains a free and sovereign nation. “
Last night several supporters and celebrities gathered for the annual Journey Home Project at The Palm restaurant in downtown Nashville, TN. The Journey Home Project was founded in 2014 by Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie Daniels and his longtime manager David Corlew. Mr. Daniels has always been a supporter of our troops and is the true definition of an “American.” The annual event helps to raise awareness and funds as they assist not-for-profit causes that provide veterans with rehabilitation, reintegration, and opportunities as they transition to civilian life. Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Scott Brown, and Sirius XM Host, Storme Warren were among the few celebrities there to show their support. It was amazing to hear the stories of Veterans who got up to speak about their experiences and how transitioning into civilian life has been a struggle. As Americans, it is our duty to give back to those who have served our country. I hope all of you will take time to check out The Journey Home Project and its mission. Our Veterans need our help! 🇺🇸❤️
About The Journey Home Project:
The Journey Home Project is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that raises contributions, takes donations and provides assistance to other non-profit organizations that benefit veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The Journey Home Project was co-founded in 2014 by country music legend Charlie Daniels and board members: David Corlew, Joe & Mercedez Longever. Conscious of the need to assist our nation’s veterans, they have set out to partner with organizations that do the most good, with the least overhead. Working in tandem with these organizations, The Journey Home Project is making a difference in the lives of American patriots.
As a result of funds raised through Daniels’ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam in 2015 and 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam in 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena and other entertainment related events, The Journey Home Project has been able to donate funds to help with the completion of the state-of-the-art Veterans and Military Families Center on campus at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), among various other fundraising events for veterans.
