A STATEMENT FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT:
"I am honored and blessed to be a part of VETMotorsports. This is a real-life, impact-making program that is filling a void for so many post 9/11 wounded veterans. I have had the great privilege to see first hand since 2012 the impact that our non-clinical outreach has on this esteemed group of people, to whom we owe so much. It is a small thing for us to do in supporting the health and well-being of a group of people who have already given so much of themselves for us. We desperately need like-minded partners to help us in our efforts to grow this program across all motor sports venues and will continue to seek new ways to add value and satisfy the needs of the post 9/11 wounded veteran community."
Lt. Col Bernie "Bunyan" Willis
A STATEMENT FROM THE founder & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR:
VETMotorsports uses motorsports as an inspiration to propel veterans forward, to encourage veterans to fund their strengths and motivations and to be inspired. We are not a race team, but use existing team structures to provide needed non-clinical outreach. As VETMotorsports expands our relationships and collaborations in the community, we are sharing our passion and strengths with those who have given so much, but asked for so little.
As we continue to move forward, our number one priority is to stay true to our mission and maintain the trust of the veteran community. Those two cornerstones, coupled with long-term sustainability, will ensure the success of VETMotorsports. On behalf of our board of directors and advisers, who share a unique vision for veteran empowerment, and as founder and executive director of VETMotorsports, I encourage you to join our unique mission of wounded combat veteran outreach.
