The Mission
Pushing "the empty chair" to Daytona Beach Florida from Locust Grove Georgia is to honor those who have fought for our country and local communities alike. We recognize their life, service and the sacrifice paid. It's for you we roll.

Our United States Military is made up of twelve branches: five that are Active Duty (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy) and seven that are considered part-time duty (Air Force Reserve, Air Force National Guard, Army Reserve, Army National Guard, Coast Guard Reserve, Navy Reserve). Active duty members are full time enlisted members that live on base or in military housing and their jobs and lives revolve around the military lifestyle. Part-time duty members train one weekend a month and two weeks a year and typically have other careers in addition to their military career.

Public Safety
There are three categories of public safety that serve our local and state governments: police, firefighters and EMT’s and are frequently lumped together as ‘first responders’. These three categories of public safety workers are responsible for ensuring the protection of our local and state citizens and perform duties on a daily basis that puts them in different degrees of danger and personal sacrifice. These individuals serve their country in the same way that the military does in that their first priority is protecting the lives of others, placing the highest priority on citizens and their safety and well-being.
