On April 9th, 2016, Salute a Vet held it’s inaugural event, “Give a Vet a Ride”, at Bondurant Racing School in Chandler. 8 veterans were selected to experience “hot laps” around the track in Dodge Challenger Hellcat racing cars.
Salute A Vet has created the “Ride for A Vet” program which gives a military veteran a ride in a vintage military aircraft or in a civilian plane flown by a veteran. This is one of the best ways that a person can truly thank a veteran for their service. It’s a memory that a veteran will cherish both mentally and with a Salute A Vet photo/video.
When we meet someone and we learn that they served in the military, many people say “Thank you for your service”. It is a sincere appreciation for the sacrifices made to protect the freedoms that we hold dear. As such, the honoring of our veterans should never end. When a person joins the military and puts their life on the line, they know that when they return from military service that they have a country who forever appreciates what they did and the dangers they faced.
Donating to Salute A Vet helps to keep that “Thank you for your Service” statement meaningful and with purpose.
You can donate to Salute A Vet today, make a difference to a veteran, and feel good knowing that you are contributing to honoring a veteran.
