War Heroes Honored at Volunteer Jam
Charlie Daniels‘ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam had many priceless moments for concertgoers, but the sold-out crowd at the Bridgestone Arena was brought to a standing ovation when several distinguished war heroes were presented with Henry Military Service Tribute Rifles during the celebration Wednesday night (Aug. 12). Henry Repeating Arms donated $200,000 to The Journey Home Project, the non-profit organization co-founded by Daniels and his longtime manager David Corlew. The donation was supposed to be $100,000, but Mr. Imperato, the President of Henry Repeating Arms, was so moved by the veterans and the work that the non-profit does that he doubled the donation while on stage. Daniels was also honored with a customized commemorate rifle to honor his efforts.
