Salute Colorado was founded in late-2013 to empower veterans of the United States Armed Forces as they pursue civilian careers and settle into Colorado communities.  Lane Hornung, the Founder of Salute Colorado, is a former Desert Storm US Marine helicopter pilot.  Lane is also the CEO and Founder of 8z Real Estate.

Salute Colorado started serving veterans in the Spring of 2014.  Our first class of Associates consists of four veterans who all happen to be former Marine Corps service men and one woman.

Our program is modeled after the esteemed Greenhouse Scholars Program, which provides personal and financial support to high-performing, under-resourced college students.

Salute Colorado is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a Section 501(c)(3) (nonprofit) organization. Our Federal Tax ID is 46-4296645.
