UPDATES I am not going to be on the pickup truck but will film them on the road.I am going to be on the back of a pickup truck filming the escort to the VFW, so let's make Orlando look good on this! Last year I filmed over 40 events for veterans groups in Central Florida FOR FREE so that someone would be covering how much this area cares about our veterans and how great our veterans are. Well, here's one more of our veterans needing support but above financial support, needs emotional support of the only group in this country knowing what kind of price our veterans paid for what we enjoy.
Here's some sites that reported on this event for Josh.
Benefit for double amputee soldier to help with home repairs
Orlando Nam Knights
When Josh was contacted about this event from Mary he was shocked that someone cared this much about him. His friends told Mary that his emotions changed just by knowing someone thought about him. Imagine that! He gave so much, did so much for this country, yet he felt no one really cared.
So how about it Orlando bikers. Want to give some time on Saturday to lift this Green Beret amputee a bit higher? Call and volunteer to give up some of your day on Saturday the same way you show up to do a poker run. Let's show the rest of this country how Orlando doesn't do anything small when it comes to our veterans!
Oh, by the way, I'm filming the event too!
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD VOLUNTEERS TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR VFW!
The Honor Guard is in need of more members.

ORLANDO “ROCKS” IT FOR
SFC JOSH BURNETTE, US ARMY, GREEN BERET
The VFW Post 4287 and Semper Fidelis America would like to invite you to attend a 3 hour Gala Extravaganza Show being held on behalf of “Our Brother” SFC Josh Burnette. On June 27, 2012, at 0835, SFC Burnette’s life changed forever...He lives...but his life has changed...FOREVER! Before SFC Burnette shipped to Afghanistan, he had plans for his home upon his return. Not expecting to return the way he did, made it all the more important. You see folks, SFC Burnette no longer has his legs! He is a double amputee due to IEDs. He lost part of his left hand as well.
The problem is wheelchairs and sand DO NOT MIX and that is what SFC’s driveway is made of. He has other necessary repairs (which are not considered medically necessary) so it is up to him to repair. Join us Saturday, January 12, 2013 as we honor him in a 3 hour show to help him raise the funds to make these much needed repairs. LADIES: Some of SFC Burnette buddies will be on hand (in uniform) to escort you to your seat! Can you feel it folks? Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Limited seating available so PLEASE get your tickets early. Contact the VFW Post 4287 for further details. IT IS EXPECTED TO SELL OUT!
