Salute America’s Heroes, a
foundation that helps the wounded soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan, and
their families learn about healing, financial options, housing, support,
etc., held a 4 day event in Orlando, Florida, December 8-11, 2004.
This was the 1st annual event which kicked off on Wednesday night
with a “Welcome Party” for the over 150 soldiers and their immediate
families. During the day, the soldiers had the opportunity to attend
seminars to learn about how to get help financially, learn about disability
options, how to get affordable housing, and where to go to find others who
are going through the same things. They were even provided with tickets to
the Disney parks to relax and enjoy themselves. On Thursday night, the
soldiers were treated to a dinner and entertainment by Ronan Tynan, Michael
Israel, Lee Ann Womack and Toby Keith. On Saturday night, there was a
private event held at the House of Blues, specifically for the SAH event.
Country singer Chely Wright and the Lt. Dan Band (Gary Sinise) provided
