Our tour will celebrate America and her resiliency and strength when faced with adversity. We'll share our discovery with our fellow Americans with photos and videos as we travel through our great country and meet thousands of Americans.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) June 28, 2010
Colonel John Folsom’s vision becomes a reality on Monday, as he represents the 501(c)(3) organization he founded – Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS) – on a 3 week national tour, passing through over 3 dozen cities. Colonel Folsom’s quest is to high five and thank America’s wounded veterans, their families, and all citizens for their support and sacrifices. He hopes the tour will also make military families aware of what Wounded Warriors Family Support offers – free vacations and retreats for the families of those injured in the line of duty. See the stories of some of the families they’ve helped on their website.
The tour’s route and event website is also live at HighFiveTour.com, enabling supporters, media, politicians and anyone else to attend the local events and get involved. The tour kicks off in Omaha, NE, the site of Wounded Warriors Family Support headquarters. It travels east, making several notable stops, including New York City, Philadelphia (at the Independence Day Parade), Baltimore and Washington, DC on July 4th, during which Colonel Folsom will be on the clock for a potential world record – the most high fives given in a 24 hour period. He also plans on stopping to visit Mayors’ offices, military hospitals, VFWs and various other venues along the way.
The whole tour will be documented and shared with the public as Colonel Folsom stops in each city. "Our tour will celebrate America and her resiliency and strength when faced with adversity. We will share our discovery with our fellow Americans with photos and videos as we travel through our great country and meet thousands of Americans," the Colonel promised.
