One cause that is near and dear to Hank’s heart is helping to honor Veterans.
I was in Vietnam as a front-entertainer, with bullets flying continually. Making these troops smile – getting their minds off the immediate dangers, if even for a moment or two – gave me such joy. Then as I’d walk through the hospitals seeing young men who (even if they lived) would never walk again. This touched me deeply. How could I help? SO I decided whenever I’d do Celebrity Autograph shows around the country, I’d give the proceeds I’d receive to wounded veteran organizations. To date, I’ve raised over $60,000.
