Celebrity Salute

Celebrity Salute was created to honor our veterans, active duty military, their families and those who support them. Through conversations with celebrities, we recognize our nation’s true heroes and the sacrifices they make to protect our freedoms. We owe them greatly, and hope to raise awareness and support for them and their families while in active service and as they transition to civilian life —many continue to serve in the communities in which they live.
