Joe Walsh will headline the November 3rd Vets Rock
concert at Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. The Eagles guitarist, whose father died while on active duty in Okinawa, Japan when Joe was just 20 months old, has become a strong advocate for veterans and Gold Star families.
The show which will benefit the USO Connecticut (USO), provide services and a good time for veterans will be hosted by Tony Orlando, who's also long been active in the cause.
On September 20th, Walsh will headline a concert for VetsAid, the charity he founded, at the Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. Proceeds will go to Operation Mend, Hire Heroes USA, Warrior Canine Connection, TAPS, Semper Fi Fund, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, Stop Soldier Suicide and Swords to Plowshares.
The guitarist says, “It’s the least I could do for those who have served and continue to serve our country. We’re all in this together as Americans and seems to me lately that people are forgetting that.”
