Trace Lends Support to Veterans Network
Trace Adkins and Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood have volunteered their time to film spots in support of the Honor Flight Network, a nonprofit organization that arranges and finances trips for America’s veterans to visit their war memorials in Washington, D.C.
Trace and Clint each filmed a 60-second spot to help raise money for the organization. The spots will air before feature films at over 1,600 movie theatres nationwide. Each spot ends by encouraging audience members to donate to the program. "With the song ‘Arlington,’ I’ve been fortunate enough to connect with many of our nation’s veterans," says Trace. “They’ve given me much more than I could ever give them. That’s why I was happy to participate in this project when approached about it.” Clint Eastwood, an Army veteran himself, has directed two World War II dramas, Flags of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima.
