Charlie Daniels Puts Money Where His Mouth is, Helps Veteran Group After Slamming Pelosi’s Pork

On Friday, we reported on how country music legend Charlie Daniels criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her bill that included money for the Kennedy Center and wondered how many “desperate veterans” that money could have helped.

Today he announced that his non-profit The Journey Home Project (TJHP) was joining forces with another non-profit, Code of Vets, to help veterans who were suffering during the pandemic.

Charlie Daniels and his veterans non-profit @TJHproject are joining forces with another non-profit group, @codeofvets, to aid former U.S. servicemen and women who are suffering amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the press release, Daniels said, “Gretchen Smith and the folks at Code of Vets cover the guys below the radar, the ones with immediate needs and no place to turn, with a rapid deployment type response to veterans in desperate circumstances.”

He continued, “These are same veterans who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom. Our nation is pretty distracted by the Coronavirus pandemic we’re all dealing with, but the need in the veterans world goes on, and the urgent need for funds is truly critical. I would ask you to join The Journey Home Project in supporting Code of Vets in providing for the needs of our most worthy citizens.”

Smith said, “We are operating under emergency conditions with this alarming spike of veterans in crisis. Please donate to assist with basic needs like food, housing and utilities. Our veterans matter. Every dollar matters. It is on us to take care of our own.”

“It is no longer business as usual. The urgency of these needs require all of our resources all of the time and we need more Americans to step up for our veterans as they did for them,” Smith added.

Daniels’ manager David Corlew and THJP founder said, “I’ve watched the amazing work that Gretchen and her team have done over the past year. It’s a natural fit for us to team with Code of Vets during a critical time such as this. Our Veterans need us. They fought for us so it’s time for us to return the service. We can do this.”
