The Smashing Pumpkins  and the Easter Seals Dixon Center will use this summer’s Pumpkins tour to promote the New Beginnings: Reaching America’s Vets campaign.

Billy Corgan, founder and frontman of the legendary alternative rock group, said, “The objective of the campaign is to raise awareness to the challenges and trauma that so many of our veterans and military families face while reintegrating back into civilian society. We stand shoulder to shoulder with Easter Seals Dixon Center in reminding fans and industry affiliates that we must partake in their emotional journey home. Their honor, service and sacrifice should never be forgotten.”

Easter Seals Dixon Center is the military and veterans arm of Easter Seals, which has been supporting all generations of veterans since World War II. In communities across the country, Easter Seals affiliates deliver services that veterans and military families need to live productive, successful lives. To date, Easter Seals Dixon Center has trained more than 30,000 military and veteran caregivers through a partnership with the Veterans Administration, in addition to providing direct services to 165,000 veterans and military families through community-based services ranging from adult day care, to job training, to camping, recreation and respite programs.

The Smashing Pumpkins are partnering with noted shock rockers Marilyn Manson on the End Times tour that kicks off July 7th in Concord, CA.  Check out Billy Corgan and Colonel David W.
