In a national media tour which will hit 50 cities this year, Ron White, two-time USA Memory Champion and Afghan war veteran, has spent countless hours over the past year memorizing the first, last name and rank of every fallen soldier from the war in Afghanistan – over 7000 words!

In 2007, he completed a tour in Afghanistan with the US Navy. After this experience, he decided to combine the things he is passionate about – training his memory and honoring the United States Armed Forces.

Ron will hand write each name including rank, from his memory, on a 50-foot display wall.

Donations will be accepted for the Wounded Warrior Project both at the event as well as online. The goal is to raise $25,000 for the organization by the end of the 50 city tour.
