When WTMJ-TV brought Heiser the idea of sponsoring THE HEROES PROJECT, we immediately knew it was right for us. After all, we've noticed the veterans we hire as employees make significant contributions to our organization. So, why not honor those veterans who continue to make a difference in the community once they return home.
We reviewed nearly 50 entries before choosing 9 veterans to honor. Each joined us with their friends and family at yesterday's event to accept their plaque and gift card. They saw a color guard, heard patriotic music and enjoyed lunch surrounded by fellow supporters. How can you beat that!
A thanks to everyone who attended, including Molly Fay of The Morning Blend. We all had great fun. And, for those who couldn't make it: Heiser plans on doing much more with the vets in the future!
