Raising Money for Veterans

  • The Man

    C. Ivan Stoltzfus is an auctioneer and real estate broker, as well as a retired farmer. He divides his time between Honey Brook, PA and Sarasota, FL. Ivan grew up farming with John Deere tractors and loved the sound of the 2 cylinder engine. He dreamed of a cross country adventure on an old John Deere tractor to see the United States of America and to raise funds for a special mission. We are a 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit " please see our sponsorship page.

  • The Machine

    A 1948 John Deere Model A will serve in 2016 as the great machine for the long journey as it did in 2014. With the help of a tractor club, Waterloo Boys of Southeastern Pennsylvania, the tractor was restored and then retrofitted with a 1984 Peterbilt model 359 cab. This tractor certainly has a unique look! It will be towing a 24' camper donated by Stoltzfus RV of West Chester, PA. We are a 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit " please see our sponsorship page.

  • The Mission

    The goal of the endeavor is to bring recognition and support for the many heroes of the USA — hurting men and women who sacrificed of themselves for our nation's freedom. We are a 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit " please see our sponsorship page.

  • Your Help

    Contributions will benefit different Veteran Organizations, supporting physical, mental health and their family counseling. With your help Ivan hopes to raise 1 Million for Across America for Wounded Heroes Inc. organizations. We have a Public Charity Status of 501(c)(3) " Non-Profit ". Please consider donating to Across America for Wounded Heroes Inc and let your friends know about us. Ivan may be coming to your town on this second trip across the US.
