Modern Warrior LIVE, the nationally acclaimed story and sound of a combat veteran’s journey.


Presented by NEOPAT (Northeast Ohio Foundation for Patriotism)

Modern Warrior LIVE is an immersive music and narrative experience that chronicles the story of US Army veteran Jaymes Poling and his journey through three deployments in Afghanistan and subsequent transition back home. Narrated by Poling, this autobiographical production weaves together his story with a cast of world-class artists in multiple genres led by internationally acclaimed trumpeter Dominick Farinacci. This production shares a personal and emotional journey of the challenges of military service and the experience veterans face when they return back home, and it is a catalyst for meaningful conversation about mental health.

About NEOPAT (Presenting Sponsor)

NEOPAT was founded in 2011 by a group of local business leaders who shared a passion for the United States, Northeast Ohio, and local military men and women and their families. NEOPAT is dedicated to promoting patriotic acts that will deepen the sense of patriotism locally and to keeping the promise to honor and remember those that have gone before us. ”We’ll wait for them and pray for them until they all get home… and when they do and if they are in need NEOPAT will help them the best it can.” NEOPAT proudly acts as a conduit between many civilian, military and government organizations and works daily to enrich the lives of those that serve or have served in any branch of the military and their family members. The NEOPAT Board and key donors have committed to paying for all overhead and administrative costs associated with operations, which allows all funds raised to go directly to community impact programs helping veterans and military families. It is our way of saying thank you and expressing gratitude to those that serve our great nation. NEOPAT is primarily a volunteer organization with two staff members who are supported by private donors and NEOPAT’s Board of Directors absorbs all administrative costs of the organization. We look forward to the next decade of excellence and highlighting the importance of patriotism for generations to come.
