HONORARY "VETTY" PRESENTED TO
Brussels is deemed by many as, “The Heart of Europe.” When the heart of Europe was so irrationally desecrated, all our hearts broke. After facing the deadliest terrorism attack in Belgium’s history, we recognize that Brussels will never be the same. The entire world will watch your resilience and perseverance as you move from sorrow to reinstating your strength.
Martin Luther King opined, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We cry out with you and are all indeed affected by the horrific acts committed against our fellow citizens on that dreadful early morning in June. We will never forget the worst mass shooting in the history of the United States and may we never experience such an unprecedented tragedy again.
To our friends in Paris, your wise countryman, Alexis de Toquelville once aptly said, “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.” As civilized humanity tries to understand how insidious acts such as this occur, we choose to focus on your strengths. Paris is known as both, “the city of love and the city of lights” and we stand with you as both your love and lights shine brighter than ever.

The mission of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is to help severely-wounded veterans and families of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation New Dawn recover from their injuries and illnesses, and to inspire other organizations and the general public to participate in this effort.
The American Legion was founded in 1919 to offer comaraderie and solace to war Veterans. That same year, Hollywood's Post 43 was formed. The building on Highland Avenue was built in 1928 with proceeds from a boxing venue run by the veterans! Post 43's storied history has been closely tied to Hollywood celebrity for nearly a century. Photos of Sid Grauman himself are among the memorabilia on display in the museum! The library, museum and Art Deco bar will take your breath away.
