Recently I received an email from Mike Gordon (LT, US Navy) about his volunteer work for the non-profit, www.HonorAndRemember.org — an organization focused on honoring our fallen veterans.
You know me, I’m all about community, and building a strong one for those touched by trauma. If this cause resonates with you it’s a great place to make a donation.
MG: To create, establish and promote a nationally recognized flag that would fly continuously as a visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms. All Military lives lost not only in action but also in service, from our nation’s inception.
The rationale behind what we do is this: In our over 200 year history there has never been an official national symbol that specifically recognizes in gratitude and respect the ultimate sacrifice made by members of the United States military in service to our nation. The Honor and Remember Flag was created for that purpose.
Our goals are :
MG: I got involved upon returning from Afghanistan. I met the founder in April of 2008 as he was talking about his vision about trying to recognize gold star families with a memorial to their son or daughter. The ultimate goal is to get a flag into every single family for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
MG: The crowd rise page was launched to help offset the cost of the 4 day run in Virginia. All the money goes towards helping pay the cost so that the runners and volunteers who put on the run and do the actual running can concentrate on what they are there to do. The link to the run page is www.varunforthefallen.org
