Arlington, VA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Warrior Gateway, as a part of the Got Your 6 campaign, is bringing veteran awareness to the Indy 500. The organization has been on a fast track as they work to connect service members, veterans and military families to resources in their local communities and this Memorial Day, Warrior Gateway has its eyes on taking the checkered flag and conquering the big screen. Twice an hour this Friday through Sunday, Warrior Gateway´s public service announcement will be playing on Indy 500 screens for the over 400,000 people in attendance.
“We´re excited to be a part of the long standing tradition of honoring our service members at the Indy 500 and we look forward to participating through our PSA ‘Home for Good,’” said Devin B. Holmes, Warrior Gateway´s Chief Executive Officer. “We are grateful to Grazie Media for this incredible opportunity to increase awareness of our work with the military and veteran community.”
With over 1100 organizations within 50 miles from the famous raceway ready to serve the over 50,000 veterans who are “Back home again in Indiana,” Warrior Gateway has poised itself to answer the critical question for veterans, “Where do I go for help?”
May has been a month of impressive growth for Warrior Gateway, as they not only launched a new and improved web portal but also won a $1 million PBVLIC Foundation media grant via a social media contest. Their participation at the Indy 500 will be both a time to celebrate an incredible month while also using the weekend as a powerful time to remember our fallen heroes, the sacrifices they made and the critical support families of the fallen need.
