In such an unprecedented time in modern history, the objective will be to send a message of encouragement and gratitude, celebrating togetherness at a time of isolation. The event will also raise funds for military-focused charities.
During the live stream, Brenkus will be joined by stars from across the country who will each share a tribute and what they love most about this place we call home.

“I am incredibly grateful that so many military owned businesses and the charities they benefit have joined forces to create a powerful show of respect and support for the men and women who have given their lives to protect our freedom,” said John Brenkus. Over 20 of the biggest and most influential military brands, businesses and charities have joined the cause with many more on the way. “The biggest veteran-founded brands are bonding together to show their unconditional support for active duty military, veterans and their families.”
