The event will feature a caravan of more than 350 corvettes, color guard presentation, live music and a Veteran’s Benefit Fair. Veterans are encouraged to bring their DD214 to register for their earned health care benefits.
Vettes to Vets, vettestovets.org, began in 2004 when Ron Morneau, a proud corvette owner and member of the Second Corps Cadets Veterans Group, asked the Corvette community to help support sick and injured troops who have given up so much. The first event was a success with 25, and “Vettes to Vets” has been cruising to the hospital each year with much-needed personal supplies.
Over the past eight years, Vettes to Vets has grown to include more than 350 corvettes in the caravan and has raised over $550,000 in cash and comfort items for Veterans at the Bedford VAMC. The proceeds from this program will be dedicated to the Homeless Veterans Domiciliary located at the Bedford VAMC.
