NASCAR legend Larry McReynolds has teamed up with the NFL's Troy Polamalu to stand "UNITED FOR VETERANS" this holiday season. "UNITED FOR VETERANS" is a historic awareness campaign launched by the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. (VFW), dedicated to raising awareness and funds that help veterans secure their VA benefits, smoothly transition to civilian life and apply to receive assistance for necessities like rent, mortgage payments and food.
With waves of new veterans recently home from the war, support for America's veterans has never meant more than it does right now. From now through the holiday season, VFW supporters will lend their voices and rally their communities to stand UNITED FOR VETERANS.
The UNITED FOR VETERANS platform empowers supporters to join with the thousands of Americans who are coming together to stand UNITED FOR VETERANS by claiming a badge to pledge their support for veterans. The badges can then be shared through social media tools, such as Facebook and Twitter. Supporters are also able to start their own personal fundraising campaign on behalf of the VFW to support the thousands of troops who have returned home and face a long road to recovery.
Photos of these supporters will be featured on UnitedforVeterans.org. Throughout the month of November, photos of supporters standing UNITED FOR VETERANS will also be published on the digital screens of Time Square, generating millions of impressions each day.
The campaign is now being headlined by prominent Americans who fervently believe in its endeavors Troy Polamalu, Larry McReynolds and co-host of WNYW FOX 5's "Good Day New York," David Price. Each is critically acclaimed in his own right, but united in the effort to support our veterans.
Supporters are urged to join Team Troy at unitedforveterans.org/troy or Team Larry at unitedforveterans.org/larrymac.
"As the country stands divided on politics and other important issues, there is one thing we can agree on," says Polamalu. "We all stand UNITED FOR VETERANS. In honor of Veterans Day and the holiday season, I'm showing my appreciation for the men and women who have protected our country by joining the Veterans of Foreign Wars' movement to help give back to those who truly deserve our support."
