I’m Bob Parsons. You may know me from my GoDaddy days. What you may not know is that I’m also a Marine, an entrepreneur, an investor, an American business leader, and a philanthropist. One more thing about me, I have a point of view – and I don’t mind expressing it.
This November the 10th marks the 242nd birthday of the United States Marine Corps, followed by Veterans Day on November 11th. This year is also the 35th anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, and we’ve created a video to celebrate the men and women who defend this great country of ours.
U.S. Billionaire Bob Parsons Pledges More Support for Vietnamese Children
At a gala dinner to present the Asian Golf Award 2017 on November 16, Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy and a U.S. veteran in Vietnam, said he will initially donate US $100,000 to BRD Group’s charity programs, largely the ‘Swing for the Kids’ program. Another US $100,000 will fund other charity programs.
It was an honor to speak at Scottsdale's Veterans Day commemoration event. As a Marine myself, I consider it a privilege to share my own experiences and to honor those who have served and who currently serve our great country.
