"We all know someone – a family member, a friend, a neighbor or perhaps ourselves – who has served," said Nicole Fields, Internet Marketing Specialist, Harrah's Joliet Casino & Hotel. "I know that America's warriors face many challenges when they return home.  Organizations such as The Disabled Patriot Fund have been our neighbors and steadfast supporters of veterans in our community for many years.  In times of need, it is our duty to continue to support their causes.  The Caesars Foundation is proud to donate $15,000 to such an important service and show our commitment to the men and women who serve and protect our country."
