Wounded Warriors Family Support’s High Five Tour is the quintessential road trip where we thank Americans from all across our great country for their appreciation and support of our nation’s military families for the sacrifices that they make when America goes to war.
This summer, the Wounded Warriors Family Support Mustang will hit the road for the High Five Tour 2014. During the four month tour, the 2014 Mustang GT500 will travel more than 26,000 miles as we crisscross the United States, traveling to more than 60 cities and making stops in 48 states. Americans of all walks of life are invited and encouraged to show their support for our 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.
Through the High Five Tour 2014, Wounded Warriors Family Support has pledged $1,000,000 toward building two “smart homes” for two deserving wounded warriors, Staff Sergeant Jason Ross, USMC and Captain Anthony Simone, USAF and their families in San Diego, California and Joliet, Illinois. Both of Jason’s legs were taken above his knees and that means he will never walk again. Anthony suffered a severe brain injury he sustained after his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. Both of these young men need specially designed “smart homes” so they can have a quality of life that we take for granted.
We need your help to meet our goal. The road to recovery can be a long and difficult struggle for our nation’s wounded warriors and their families.
Every donation, large or small, is deeply appreciated and helps us meet our goal of making these “smart homes” more than just a set of blueprints.

A “smart home” is a custom-designed house built to address the individual needs of our wounded warriors. The homes are energy-efficient and provide severely wounded veterans ease of accessibility and automation that allows them to live more independent lives.
