The 2001 HBO miniseries Band of Brothers inspired actor and Marine Corps veteran Michael Broderick to create, a fundraising initiative for GallantFew, a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminate veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.

Broderick launched this labor of love in April 2012, when he purchased a Band of Brothers poster signed by six Easy Company veterans. Broderick then diligently acquired the signatures of eight WWII veterans portrayed in the series and 28 of the cast members, including Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.

Broderick teamed up with eBay to create a charity auction to benefit GallantFew, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans help themselves and each other.

100% of the proceeds go to GallantFew; the Poster Project auction ends on June 16.

Bid on the this one-of-a-kind poster on eBay. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood and American history. Eight WWII veterans of the legendary Easy Company and 28 members of the cast and crew of HBO's Band of Brothers have signed this Band of Brothers poster being auctioned off on eBay in support of GallantFew. Bidding ends June 16th, 2013 at 7 p.m. EST.

Founded by retired Army Ranger Major Karl Monger, GallantFew's mission is to reduce veteran unemployment and homelessness and to eliminate veteran suicide. Using their unique model of facilitating mentor relationships between returning veterans and a veteran in their community that has already made the transition to civilian life successfully, GallantFew has made a tremendous impact for many veterans. Put simply, GallantFew enables very personal, one-on-one support for veterans provided by their peers.
