Williams’ book, The Art of Retirement will be placed in care packages and then sent to soldiers fighting across the world. Earlier this year, Williams donated 200 books to HeroBox.

“We are incredibly grateful to Mr. Williams for his continuing donation of his book. The Art of Retirement is an investment in our Heroes’ lives, reminding them about life after deployment and easing the stress of planning for their futures. We cannot thank Mr. Williams and his team enough for their continued support of our troops,” Tiffany Dillard, Program Director of HeroBox said.

About HeroBox

Founded in 2008, HeroBox evolved from a family's simple effort of supporting their hero. HeroBox founder Ryan Housley learned during his brother's deployment that many service members were not receiving any support from home. He also noticed that all deployed service members have specific needs depending on their gender, location and a variety of other factors. Most care packages are generic and don't provide the items our heroes need. Ryan worked with his brother to develop a web platform that would connect the American people with their heroes instantly online, and was launched.
