This extended-holiday weekend is for honoring those that helped protect our country. That’s why UFC fighter and military veteran Brian Stann is hoping his Hire Heroes USA non-profit organization has a big weekend.
Hire Heroes USA and the Call of Duty Endowment are asking people to share an image that reminds them of what Memorial Day is all about on their Facebook page. For each image shared, a dollar will be donated to Hire Heroes USA, which helps assist veterans and their spouses in finding jobs after their tours are done.
“The contributions and awareness raised over the past two years through this campaign have assisted us tremendously, contributing to the sustained employment of more than 400 veterans and their spouses,” said Stann, in a recent press release.
Stann started the Hire Heroes USA foundation in 2007. He will be back in action in August against Hector Lombard in the main event of UFC on FOX 4.
