The 2022 Heroes Honor Festival is the welcome home that Vietnam Veterans never received. Organized by the non-profit Engage Your Destiny (EYD) and 9/11 generation of wartime veterans, HHF is open to the public over Memorial Day Weekend at the Daytona International Speedway. The two-day celebration features world-class entertainment, a ticker-tape parade, interactive exhibits, reunions and a veterans resource expo.
WHY THIS IS HAPPENING NOW
Because our society rejected Vietnam Veterans when they came home from active duty, many have endured physical, emotional and spiritual challenges over the past 50 years. Despite this, many of them vowed that those who follow never experience that rejection. In honor of their valor both in battle and at home, EYD is launching the Heroes Honor Festival as a way to change history—to give Vietnam Veterans the kind of welcome home that American veterans of recent wars in the Middle East have received.

As a Vietnam veteran I deeply appreciate the work of these young vets to honor us and I know my brothers in arms will too. Gods hand is on this movement and I know it will be a blessing to all who attend.— Gen. Jerry Boykin
