Why Matt Goss and Bouhammer.com teamed up to honor Veterans Day

By |

Some people have asked me why Matt Goss and I teamed up to honor Veterans next week (http://prlog.org/11716637). Matt and I want to accomplish two things with this event. We want to raise an AWARENESS of the day and what it means (or should mean) to all Americans and the World. We also want to raise…
