According to folklore, during the Civil War the United States Government promised benefits to all those that served. After the war, thousands of Veterans descended upon Washington D.C. to collect on these promised benefits and were instead issued a rolled parchment decree, tied in red tape, breaking many of the promises. Hence, the phrase “Government Red Tape” became synonymous with government bureaucracy.
Granted, a lot has changed since the Civil War, but one thing appears to remain consistent – the continued difficulty we Veterans encounter navigating, and thus receiving the Honor and benefits we were promised, entitled, and deserve.
What is 833-Hero-Help?
As a Veteran owned and operated business, the Hometown Hero Project launched 833-Hero-Help as a FREE resource to help cut through the red tape. The 833-Hero-Help project provides Veterans, Local Heroes, and their families with personal assistance in locating and obtaining resources, and also implements direct referrals and outreach to our Veteran Preferred businesses.
How to obtain access to this program?
Veterans, family members, and friends can fill out our easy-to-use explaining what you or your Veteran’s needs and requests are, or you can call us toll free at 833-Hero-Help – we highly recommend our online form for the fastest response. Businesses can also contact us at (800) 863-2541.

You Are Not Forgotten
“On the night of November 7, 2017 an honorably discharged Vietnam Era Veteran, Paul B., called the streets of Glendale, Arizona his home. Paul is over 60 years old and disabled. A concerned business owner, Ron Jacobs, notified our Veteran Help & Resource Division early the next morning. Within minutes, we made direct contact with Paul. We verified his situation, and within hours of notifying our Phoenix VA Community Resource & Referral Center liaison, Cynthia Montoya, Paul was given warm and friendly living accommodations.”
Extended Reach Program
On September 28, 2017 the fine folks of Goettl’s High Desert Mechanical, Inc., of Camp Verde, Arizona, reached out to the Hth Hero Help & Resource Division expressing a desire to giveaway a FREE Home Heating & Cooling system to two (2) deserving Veterans. Through our Extended Reach Program, HTH facilitated Email Blasts to all our Nonprofit and for profit contacts, posted numerous Facebook promotions and videos, as well as made television, radio, and print media outreach.
As a result, Goettl’s High Desert Mechanical, Inc. garnered extraordinary community exposure and goodwill for their generous gifts, and two deserving Veterans received a much needed Heating & Cooling upgrade for their homes completely free! How Cool Is That!

“I recently started a veteran owned business and wanted to advertise to veterans. Adam Moore from Veteran News Network (VNN) contacted me about running a video advertisement with the American Legion. Adam and I were very excited to talk with one another, and we both were very excited to get my business advertised to our veterans. The team at VNN was very professional and extremely helpful with digitally creating an advertisement for my business and helping me get in touch with various veteran associations in my area. Adam continues to check in with me via phone or email to ensure
professionalism within VNN, my company, and veteran associations.”
