Best Veterans Advocate

Dan Garza, CEO of Operation Enduring Gratitude

The founder of Operation Enduring Gratitude is helping to honor military veterans by getting their contributions recognized on state drivers’ licenses; 11 states now cite veterans’ status on drivers’ licenses with a “V” for meritorious service. The former U.S. Army platoon sergeant and Army Ranger helps veterans at an awesome residence program for homeless vets and assists them in their transition to civilian life. His other efforts include Operation VETNET, a national network of retailers and merchants that provide discounts to U.S. veterans, and The RAVE (Recognizing America’s Veterans Everywhere) Motorcycle Series, custom cycles manufactured to represent the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. op-eg.org, libertymanor.org.
