U.S. Army Veteran and Automotive Sales Trainer Joe Verde Donates $37,900 to Help Place Canine Companions with Wounded Veterans

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA – May 28, 2013 – Joe Verde Sales and Management Training, Inc., today announced that company president Joe Verde has donated $37,900 to Canine Companions for Independence, which will help place companion dogs with physically disabled military veterans.

At the National Automobile Dealers Association annual convention in Orlando, Fla., this past February, Joe Verde was the highest bidder on a 2011 Fat Boy Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The live auction event, sponsored by NADA and ADESA, was held to benefit wounded veterans. Verde's winning bid of $26,000 benefited the Wounded Veterans Initiative of Canine Companions for Independence and went toward the cost of providing specially-trained service dogs to assist disabled U.S. veterans. Verde recently sold the motorcycle for $11,900. These funds were also donated to Canine Companions at their most recent quarterly graduation ceremony in Oceanside, Calif., on May 17, 2013; bringing the donation total to $37,900.

“I'm a veteran. My dad was a veteran, and my son and grandkids are all veterans,” said Verde, president of Joe Verde Sales & Management Training Inc. in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. “And, I appreciate everything that the men and women in the armed forces stationed around the world do for all of us. Please do all you can to support this worthy cause; visit: joeverde.com/vets or cci.org/veterans.”

Verde served in the U.S. Army for more than seven years and was stationed in Vietnam in 1967, 1968 and 1969, during the Vietnam War, as a CH-47 Flight Engineer. As a Purple Heart recipient himself, he has a strong connection with other veterans and has become active in ways to help them make a smoother transition into their lives back at home.
