We have been asked to honor 19 Disabled Veterans who are attending a Veteran’s Entrepreneurial Jumpstart (VEJ) Program at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA. Details about this program is below. We will stand flag line at the University and present these Heroes with our AHW Certificate and thank them for their service.
So, let’s get out there and show our veterans what they mean to us. (NO escort)

We are hosting 19 disabled veterans from across the country who will be participating in our Veterans Entrepreneurial Jumpstart (VEJ) program designed to help them start their own businesses. The veterans will be here from April 26 – May 1. Our program is free of charge to our veterans – transportation, lodging, meals and materials are all included. In addition, at the completion of the program, each veteran will be assigned a mentor who will help them in the initial stages of executing the business plan. They will also receive a complement of in-kind services to include: wealth management; website development and hosting; tax & accounting services; legal & contract services; access to St. Joe’s online business library; and a free business computer through a local American Legion post.
I think that having a welcoming committee who truly supports our veterans would help set the tone for the rest of the week.
If it is possible, we would love to have your group participate in the welcome on April 26th. Our veterans will be transported in two vans from the Hilton City Avenue (4200 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA) to Mandeville Hall at St. Joe’s (parking lot on 54th Street off of City Avenue).
We would have everyone staged at Mandeville Hall by 10:50am in time for the veterans’ arrival.
Please bring your 3’X5′ American Flag for a flag line.
