Active duty and veterans can not only get fresh cuts, but also learn about the services the center offers.

Robstown, Texas — Active Duty, Veterans, First Responders were offered free haircuts on Wednesday Burnpit Warrior Support Center.

“They protect us, give us life and give us time every day,” said John Pizzana.

Pizana was one of the barbers who provided the service for free.

He is at the Rogers Barber Shop in Anaville. He heard what the nonprofits were doing and knew he had to help.

“I decided to take a break in the morning and called on all my clients to change their schedule,” Pizana said.

After his own family served in the army, it’s close to his heart.

“In memory of them, that’s why I’m here,” said Pisana.

Eric Fiedler, PD Officer in Robstown, stopped by to help, not for a haircut.

“As a former barber myself for 16 years, this is a great thing I can do for the community, especially veterans. You have a smile on their faces,” said Fiedler.

Those who stop by can learn more about Burnpit 360 and their mission to help veterans. Nonprofits have spent more than a decade fighting for the medical benefits of veterans exposed to toxic burn holes abroad.

If you don’t have the opportunity to stop by, the BurnPits Warrior Support Center on 201 N.4th Street in Robstown will host a free Haircuts for Heroes from 10am to 1pm on the first Wednesday of every month.
