The Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang will stop in Gulfport as part of the High Five Tour 2014.

During the High Five Tour 2014, Wounded Warriors Family Support’s red, white, and blue 2014 Ford Mustang GT500 is traveling to 65 cities in 48 states on a mission to say “thank you” and show appreciation to our country’s military families for their sacrifices. Americans of all walks of life are invited to show their support for military families by visiting a stop on the tour and signing the car with a message of support to our country’s veterans and their families.

The High Five Tour 2014’s mission is also to raise funds to build “smart homes” for two deserving wounded warriors and their families. Through the tour, Wounded Warriors Family Support has pledged $1 million to build “smart homes” for Staff Sergeant Jason Ross, USMC of San Diego, Calif., and Captain Anthony Simone, USAF of Joliet, Ill. Absolutely 100 percent of all funds donated to the High Five Tour 2014 will go directly to the construction of the homes. The specially designed homes are custom-built to provide the severely wounded veterans quality of life and independence that otherwise would not be possible.

Throughout the tour, the Mustang will stop at Ford dealerships, community events, veterans’ organizations, military bases and race tracks.

The High Five Tour 2014 will stop at the following location in your area on Thursday, June 5th:
-Butch Oustalet Ford, 9274 Hwy. 49 N., Gulfport, 6 to 8 p.m.

“The High Five Tour 2014 is about showing our support to military families across the nation,” said Colonel John Folsom, USMCR (Ret.), founder and president of Wounded Warriors Family Support. “Our mission is also to positively affect the lives of two wounded veterans — Staff Sergeant Ross and Captain Simone — who have made tremendous sacrifices in the line of duty. We’re excited to bring the High Five Tour 2014 to Gulfport.”
