Our first concert to launch the program became the Kenny Chesney Poets & Pirates Tour performance in San Francisco on June 8, 2008. Our group of distinguished veterans celebrated the occasion with a very enthusiastic stadium full of Chesney fans that came to hear their favorite CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year perform along with some of his ‘friends’.

It was an amazing event spanning more than six hours and featured award winning artists LeAnn Rimes, Brooks & Dunn, Steve Miller, Sammy Hagar, and Chesney. Gary Allan helped kick off the music festival with a number of his current hits including, ‘Sitting here watching airplanes’ which our group was able to do from our floor seats right next to the stage.

We extend our appreciation and thanks to Kenny Chesney and friends for making this concert such a memorable occasion for our veterans.

CMA Male Vocalist of the Year and ACM Top Male Vocalist, Brad Paisley, stepped up to provide our first concert tour series by contributing tickets for our veterans to attend four of his concerts in California as part of the 2008 Paisley Party Tour. Over a two- week period in June, our veterans in San Diego, Fresno, the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento Area, enjoyed a thoroughly entertaining show featuring Julianne Hough, Chuck Wicks, Jewel and Brad Paisley.

The music and performances made these truly unforgettable experiences for our VIP guests.

Our appreciation and gratitude goes to Brad Paisley, his band and support team for making this so very special for our honored veterans.

In October, the B.R. Cohn winery produced its annual benefit concert providing support to several organizations including the National Veterans Foundation. A group of Purple Heart recipients who served in Vietnam were our guests for this afternoon of music featuring the Doobie Brothers, the Turtles, and Kris Kristofferson. We thank Bruce Cohn and all the folks at the B.R. Cohn winery for including our veterans and A Note of Thanks in the day’s activities. The music rocked!
