HBO celebrates Veterans Day with The Concert of Valor

Concert for Valor blogStarbucks, HBO and Chase are recognizing 16 veteran service organizations (VSOs) this Veterans Day on November 11th — and we are delighted to announce Easter Seals Dixon Center is included in this group! These VSOs are being highlighted for outstanding service and support of veterans and their families and will benefit from a very special THE CONCERT FOR VALOR.

This free event will honor the courage and sacrifice of America’s veterans and their families on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and will be presented live, free, and open to non-subscribers on HBO this Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11th (7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT). The concert will feature a talented line-up of musicians including The Black Keys, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Dave Grohl, Eminem, Metallica, Rihanna and the Zac Brown Band, all for the purpose of creating awareness and engaging Americans to learn more, get involved and share with others.

It’s like Colonel David Sutherland, U.S. Army (ret.), Chairman, Easter Seals Dixon Center and Chief Strategist, Easter Seals Military and Veterans Services says: “It’s time to break down the barriers that clog up the prospects for our veterans. That’s why we’re standing side-by-side this Veterans Day with the organizers and performers at THE CONCERT FOR VALOR. It’s not about charity. It’s about opportunity – the opportunity to ensure that veterans and military families succeed where they live.”

At Easter Seals, we believe veterans and military families make valuable, long-lasting contributions to our community. We established Easter Seals Dixon Center as a way to support veterans’ transition back to civilian life through our network of resources and services. We invite you to:

  • Watch or host a concert watch party of the concert on November 11th.
  • Refer a veteran or loved one needing support to Easter Seals Dixon Center or the Community OneSource hotline (866) 423-4981

Easter Seals Dixon Center encourages the American public, and especially employers, to gain a new appreciation for the value of veterans in the workforce and society as a whole, something THE CONCERT FOR VALOR will undoubtedly shine a spotlight upon.

Thank you for all that you do to support our veterans and their families, and please join us in tuning in to salute them!
