Singer/songwriter Canaan Smith knows a few things about chasing the American dream, and part of that journey includes a nod to the heroes that keep us safe and free to dream.

Dallas-based men’s clothier Mizzen+Main, arguably one of the most socio-conscious apparel brands, launched their #Henleys4Heroes campaign this month, proving once again their commitment to the good ol’ red, white and blue.

Hey everyone! My name is Kenzie Hall and I am 16 years old. When I was 11, I started a program called Brat Pack 11. Brat Pack 11 grants wishes to military kids who have had a parent injured or lost to war. In the beginning it was difficult to have adults take me serious with this idea… But then I was introduced to the Boot Campaign! They loved my passion and understood what I was trying to accomplish! Brat Pack 11 became the first program for kids administered by the Boot Campaign! Brat Pack 11 is an essential need…
