Interview segments will be intertwined throughout the performances telling the story of “God Bless The U.S.A.” and his underlying support for our military and veterans.

“I am always honored to help support Veterans wherever I can,” says Greenwood. “I still can’t believe so many of my music friends came to be part of this special taping where we were able to give two homes away to Veterans. It’s even more special to have Newsmax airing this special during the Memorial Day weekend.”

During the taping of this special, two adapted homes were given to deserving veterans through Greenwood’s association with Helping A Hero, a 501(c)3 organization. Those homes were donated by Louis and Patti Breland of Breland Homes in Huntsville, Alabama.
