As an Army Veteran myself,
It will be my honor to perform at a Veterans Day Luncheon at an upscale community. How about you?

I've been doing a ceremonial job every veterans day for the past decade at an upscale Jewish retirement community. Unfortunately, a lot of the folks there that managed to survive the WWII concentration camps have recently passed away. They were some pretty incredible individuals.

A local VA, backing about 9 acts of various kinds. Play one hour by myself...next hour backing people. 8 total hour job. This is the VA my father-in-law was at when he passed.

It is my honor to be there. Also, there is an old car show and lots of presentations of awards.

Veterans day is always booked two years in advance for me. Just got home from a double and turned down one for tonight cause I'm too damned old to do triples.

It was hard to keep back the tears as I ended my show today with
God Bless The USA and slowly Veterans started to stand proudly some in wheel chairs, canes, walkers, nurses, and Saluted as I sang this beautiful song. I was so honored to be able to perform for them. When the show was over I personally & the thunderous applause quieted down I went out there & shook hands with all the Vets and thanked them for their service to our country!!




Here's a Video clip of a Veterans show I did in 2011
