Thirteen years ago, Scott Burns, a Marine Corps Veteran, planned his first “7 Days for The Troops” event to raise money for veterans in need. What started as a passion project to bring awareness to disabled veterans before and after 9/11 has turned into a movement.
Each year, “7 Days for The Troops” events give 100% of the proceeds to a charity serving veterans. Purple Heart Homes, Gold Star Families Memorial Monument planned for Veterans Memorial Park, and the Marine Corps League are recent recipients.
Scott Burns joined Rebecca Turner on Good Things to talk about his mission and how Mississippi can help in supporting upcoming events.
