A friend of mine, Michael Broderick, who was the Marine Corps veteran who introduced “Brothers at War” to Gary Sinise, has taken on a new project in his mission to help returning veterans who have been at the front of the fight get paired up with other veterans who have successfully made the transition to the civilian life. He has trekked around the US tracking down WWII veterans of the legendary Easy Company, 101st Airborne Division and 28 members of the cast and crew of the critically acclaimed and award winning HBO miniseries: including Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Damian Lewis and many more, all of whom have signed a “Band of Brothers” movie poster. I thought this incredible piece of Hollywood and American history might look awesome hanging in your office or on display in your corporate headquarters.
The auction of this one of a kind poster runs until this Sunday, June 16th at 7pm Eastern. http://ebay.com/
100% of the proceeds from the auction go to GallantFew, a veterans support organization (501c3). Founded by retired Army Ranger Major Karl Monger, GallantFew’s mission is to reduce veteran unemployment and homelessness and to eliminate veteran suicide. Using their unique model of facilitating mentor relationships between returning veterans and a veteran in their community that has already made the transition to civilian life successfully, GallantFew has made a tremendous impact for many veterans. Put simply, GallantFew enables very personal, one on one support for veterans provided by their piers.
