Veterans United Home Loans Kicks Off Veterans Day Early With #ThanksToVeterans RV Tour

October 12, 2022

COLUMBIA, Mo., Oct. 12, 2022 - Veterans United Home Loans, the nation's number one VA purchase lender, is kicking off a cross-country RV tour to help America's Veterans make their communities better.

The 11-stop, coast-to-coast, RV tour will see Veterans United employees and their military advisors teaming up with Veteran homeowners through community service projects.

"Every year, we want to do something big on Veterans Day," said Daniel A. Dailey, 15th Sergeant Major of the Army and military advisor to Veterans United. "This year, instead of impacting a handful of Veterans, we're very excited to take Veterans United on the road to work with dozens of Veterans and their communities in person."

The tour began at the Association of the United States Army's (AUSA) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. on October 10-12. The RV will head to future stops in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Maine, Tennessee, Illinois, and Missouri before hitting the West Coast in San Diego, California on Nov. 11 to celebrate Veterans Day 2022. The tour will wrap up at Veterans United's hometown as the RV returns to Columbia, Mo. for a celebration and service project on Nov. 15.

"At Veterans United, our mission is to help Veterans achieve their home ownership dreams," said Pam Swan, vice president of military relations and business development. "We are committed to bringing Veterans and their communities together, and this RV tour will be a fun way to showcase this. We're excited to get out there and be alongside as our Veterans work shoulder-to-shoulder with their neighbors."

In honor of Veterans Day, the 2022 #ThanksToVeterans tour will include 11 stops at the following locations:

  • Oct. 10-12 – Washington, D.C.
  • Oct. 13 – Gaithersburg, Maryland
