The following comes from the State Director of the Patriot Guard riders:
The Heroes Honor Festival (HHF), honoring all Vietnam Veterans, is happening in just under 40 days (May 27 & 28) at Daytona International Speedway. This is a public, patriotic celebration featuring live music, special guests, patriotic displays and events to honor our Vietnam Heroes.
The key update we'd like to share is, the Heroes Honor Festival tickets are now FREE for ALL Active Duty Military, Veterans who served at any time, their spouses, veteran's widows and all children 12 and under.
To receive your FREE tickets, go to heroeshonorfestival.com to learn more about the event and register.
For those of you that are already coming, we look forward to seeing you there. Please stop by PGR's Vietnam & Global War on Terrorism Memorial Walls when you get there and say hi.
For anyone that would like to volunteer to assist at HHF there are three different ways you can get involved:
The HHF team is building an “Army” of 1200 volunteers to support this celebration of Vietnam Veterans. They need help with setup, tear down, greeters, ushers, ticket takers, etc. All volunteers will get free admission to the event. If you are interested in learning more or want to register as a volunteer, go to heroeshonorfestival.com/volunteer/
In addition to the volunteer Army mentioned above, the HHF team has asked the PGR and a couple of other organizations to help provide Security Staff to augment the Daytona International Speedway Security team. This will help reduce costs for HHF. If you are willing to help with Security, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know of your interest. We will then forward that information to the HHF team. Note, like the volunteer Army, Security Volunteers will also get free admission to the event.
Lastly, the PGR will publish a HOTH mission for the display of our Memorial Walls as we get closer to the event. We will need people to help with setup, tear down, and staffing the Walls throughout the event. We anticipate the Walls will be a big draw during the event and will be organizing the coverage as the event gets closer. Please watch for the HOTH mission posting and respond accordingly if this is of interest.
For all of our Vietnam Veterans, we look forward to honoring your service to our Grateful Nation and are excited to give you the Welcome Home you deserve so much.
For all members who are willing to help make this a great event, we hope you will consider volunteering for one of the opportunities mentioned above and please continue to spread the word to help us honor these Heroes.
We look forward to seeing you at Heroes Honor Festival on Memorial Day Weekend. Please feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions.
