Cuba Gooding Jr. and Dr. Roscoe Brown (Tuskegee Airman) spoke at the Unity For Vets concert this past Veterans Day. Recently HonorVet.org teamed up with Lucas Films in support of their new film Red Tails which is a story of the Tuskegee Airmen. 


Red Tails is an upcoming 2012 action drama film directed by Anthony Hemingway, from a screenplay by John Ridley and Aaron McGruder. The story, written by Ridley, is inspired by true events. George Lucas serves as the executive producer for the project. Its is based on the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American combat pilots during World War II, and is the first Lucas Film production since Radiolan Murders (1994) not associated with the  Indiana Jones or Star Wars franchises. This movie stars Cuba Gooding Jr., who previously starred in another movie title based on The Red Tails called The Tuskegee Airmen on HBO.

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Dr. Roscoe Brown both took the stage after Senator John McCain made a proclamation for Veterans Day. Cuba spoke about the extraordinary accomplishments that veterans have and continue to make. He further spoke of his unwavering support for the men and woman who have and continue to serve our country. HonorVet and Lucas Films will continue to work together to raise funds and awareness for veterans and their families. We will keep you updated with new and exciting news surrounding this partnership.

At 7:50am, Jim McCain and Cindy McCain went on CNN live to talk about the extraordinary accomplishments HonorVet.org has made to date. Jim talked briefly about the struggles that his friends went through which inspired him to do something to help. Mrs. McCain then talked about the saddening struggles that the veterans and their families go through on a daily basis.

"HonorVet and what they do is remarkable because these two young men saw not only a need that wasn't being met," said Cindy McCain, "they saw a niche that they not only knew needed to be filled, but was not being filled."
