Lee Greenwood is now an Ambassador for the DAV (Disabled American Veterans), a nonprofit organization that provides support for America’s ill and injured veterans.
Greenwood performed “God Bless the USA” for 4,000 DAV members at the closing ceremonies of the DAV National Convention in Atlanta on Wednesday (Aug. 3). The event marked the start of Greenwood’s official partnership with DAV.
“It was an exciting night at the DAV National Convention in Atlanta. These proud men and women are dedicating their lives after military service to help those who are struggling to fit back into civilian life. They address the challenges of all wounded veterans head on and give hope to each soldier who otherwise might not survive,” Greenwood said.
A known champion of military and veteran causes, Greenwood will work with DAV to bring much-needed attention and support to the needs of the country’s 22 million veterans, their families and survivors. His ambassadorship will include support of many DAV campaigns, including Keep the Promise and Thank a Vet.
“Mr. Greenwood has shown a deep and abiding respect for our nation’s service members and veterans, and we could not be more thankful for his support,” said DAV National Adjutant Marc Burgess. “Our members were absolutely thrilled to hear him perform, and appreciate his patriotism and genuine gratitude for those who served. He is greatly admired within the veteran community and we look forward to working closely with him as advocates for our nation’s heroes.”
