PRO VS. GI JOE is the marquee program of Joint Forces Initiative. In 2007 our Co-Founder, Addie Zinone, was deployed to Iraq 2 months after she married her husband Greg.
In an effort to stay connected and support the troops, Greg leveraged the power of video games. He set out to pit professional athletes in video game contests against deployed U.S. Military.
We’ve proven to leagues, teams, players, and all parts of the military that we’re THE only organization that does this right.
Audiences at major league sporting events stand with us to support our troops. Via live teleconference with deployed military teams, thousands of sporting fans pay tribute to the men and women serving our country.
How the Pro vs. GI Joe Live Salute works:
It gives people chills and the troops LOVE knowing that they’re connected to a fun event back home. It’s the little things that count!
Joint Forces Initiative’s Purpose Driven Rehab provided scholarships to wounded veterans to assist in various Pro vs GI Joe and tailgating events at sporting events nationwide. The wounded veterans would drive the Purpose Driven Rehab RV from stadium to stadium to set up events to benefit and support other veterans and their families. This responsibility gave the PDR vets purpose and connected them with other veterans going through similar circumstances.
