Hank Brake to Perform for Vietnam Veterans
During Operation Welcome Home in Las Vegas

The Aviation Nation Foundation proudly announces that Star Chaser Recording Artist Hank Brake will perform live on stage during the Operation Welcome Home celebration weekend in Las Vegas, NV. Operation Welcome Home is being presented by Las Vegas and the U.S. Air Force over Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 11-13th.

Mr. Brake's newest release, "Thank You", has been chosen as the theme song for Operation Welcome Home, the "Thank You and Welcome Home" event to honor the 2.7 million Vietnam Veterans who served.

Hank recorded this moving tribute, written by Daniel Smith, in honor of all past and present members of our Armed Forces, but most especially for his Uncle, Army 1st Lieutenant Kenneth Slaughter, who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1970. "I finally found a way to say Thank You to my Uncle for his service to our country. I only wish he was here so I could shake his hand and say it to him personally", says Mr. Brake. "My goal is to have any American who has ever worn the uniform, past or present, to hear the song and understand just how much we appreciate their duty to country and sacrifices they and their families make while defending our freedoms. I am especially honored to be a part of thanking those who served with my Uncle Ken, in Vietnam."

Hank will be performing at Aviation Nation 2005—The Nellis Air Force Base-Las Vegas Centennial Air Show, as part of the USO show and at other events associated with the air show. He may also perform, at a time to be announced, during the nightly Patriots Party on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas. The Patriots Party includes a salute to the USO and is free to the public.

Hank Brake has donated hundreds of hours of time entertaining America’s active duty military and veterans at multiple events across the U.S., including military and veterans hospitals.

"We are honored to have Hank Brake be a part of this celebration, and look forward to his Thank You song that will be performed for thousands of veterans who will be present in Las Vegas for this momentous occasion", said Bob Avery, Organizing Chairman for Operation Welcome Home.
