Great American Roadtrip for Veterans and First Responders 

The Great American Road Trip for Veterans and First Responders is a cross-country fundraiser organized by retired United States Marine Corps veteran and ret. Law Enforcement Officer Scott Montefusco that benefits the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Scott Montefusco has spent the last 36 years in and out of uniform. He has voluntarily embarked on a journey to drive across the United States America in a vintage 1952 Korean War Willys Jeep that he built and restored known as “Little Glory” in to fundraise for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Visit his donation page here.

Scott is auctioning off the vintage Jeep he is making the journey in and proceeds from the sale are being donated to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.



“My mission aims to honor all military veterans and first responders for their service to us all then and now…. and to educate our youngest generation about the tragic days of 9/11, the post-9/11 illnesses affecting those who served, and finally to share our American history”, shared Scott. His mission is promote respect for our great nation while honoring the American flag and all it stands for. ” I am meeting and greeting my fellow veterans, their families, and patriots alike,” he shared. He hopes to inspire others to also serve our country and our communities by joining the military or become a first responder.

Scott’s road trip follows the route of Colonel Horatio Nelson Jackson, the first person to ever drive an automobile across the USA. Colonel Horatio Nelson Jackson was a decorated WWI veteran who originally made the journey on the same dates 120 years ago in 1903.  Scott’s cross-country journey ends in New York City.



Scott Montefusco is raising funds for the Tunnel to Towers In the Line of Duty Program which provides mortgage-free homes to our nation’s catastrophically injured veterans and first responders, Gold Star families and Fallen First Responder families with young children, and homes for homeless veterans through our Veteran Homelessness program.
