Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang makes stop in Michiana

Posted:

A patriotic muscle car made a couple stops in Michiana Thursday morning.  Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang has been traveling across the country to say "thank you" and show their appreciation to our country's military families for their sacrifices.  The red, white and blue, 850 horsepower 2013 Mustang GT500 "Super Snake" will cover more than 21,000 miles, traveling to more than 60 cities, including South Bend, and making stops in 48 states on the High Five Tour 2013.

The Founder of Wounded Warriors Family Support, John Folsom, says it is very important to support the families of soldiers who have been injured in battle.  "We have to support our military families," Folsom says, "because they are under a great deal of pressure, especially when a service member is wounded or killed in combat operation."

The High Five Tour 2013's mission is also to raise funds to build two "smart homes" for two deserving wounded warriors and their families. Wounded Warriors Family Support has partnered with the Gary Sinise Foundation to build the "smart homes," and 100 percent of all funds donated to the High Five Tour will go directly to the construction of the homes.  To learn more information visit Wounded Warriors Family Support.
