Hi, my name is Scott Montefusco, I am a retired Marine Corps Veteran and Law Enforcement officer having served 36 years in and out of uniform. I have voluntarily taken on a drive across the USA as a supporter of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T.org), which is a 4-star rated 501c3 charity. I have built and restored two special vehicles to conduct the "Great American Road Trip for Veterans". My road trip is 100% voluntary, and I am conducting this drive to raise awareness for T2T.org by asking all Americans and corporations to donate directly to T2T in support of T2T's programs. Their programs pay the mortgages for the families of military and first responders with children who have died in the line of duty. T2T's home mortgage program is also building and providing free smart homes for our catastrophically wounded veterans and first responders. T2T has expanded its giving in a new national program aimed to eradicate homelessness by providing housing and services to Veterans who are homeless across all 50 states.
My campaign also aims to honor all military veterans and first responders for their service to us all then and now. To educate our youngest generation about the tragic days of 9/11, the post-9/11 illnesses affecting those who served, and finally to share our American history, respect for our nation, and respect for one another, while honoring our American Flag and all she stands for. I am meeting and greeting my fellow veterans, their families, and patriots alike. I am promoting and sharing our campaign with these vehicles, and I hope to inspire others to serve us all as military members and first responders.
- No commercial monetary sponsors have provided funding to make this drive possible. I am humbly asking those who wish to show their support by helping me make this drive. Your donation will help offset the costs of making this drive from San Francisco to New York City starting May 23, 2023, and ending 65 days later on July 26, 2023. Please join me, follow me, and help share the campaign with all those who support my campaign to help the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Living history starts here!
This drive will honor American history, our veterans, and first responders while remembering the victims of 9/11 by following the route of the first person to ever drive an automobile across the USA. Colonel Horatio Nelson Jackson was a decorated WWI veteran who made this drive on the same dates 120 years ago in 1903. He is one of the founding fathers of the American Legion and one who stood for the love of country, and service to us all. You may read more about the drive here: History drive and route
