"It is such a good cause! Anything to do with our soldiers and to do with Autism is near and dear to my heart. My father is a veteran and my son has autism. It is because of these type of family connections that I feel so strongly about the causes I support, which now includes the Warriors In Motion program." - Franklin Becker
