For Memorial Day, Submit the Name of a Fallen Hero to #TheHonorProject

Memorial Day can bring up many emotions in the Veteran community: grief, nostalgia, pride, even loneliness. For many, visiting their battle buddy’s resting place provides a sense of peace, comfort and duty. For those who can’t get there because of distance or reasons beyond their control, the day can feel hollow. 

This Memorial Day, volunteers from Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) will visit national cemeteries across the country on behalf of Veterans and families of the fallen to lay commemorative tokens at the resting places of fallen heroes. At each interment site, they will also pause to reflect and give thanks for that fallen hero’s service and sacrifice.

As a Gold Star sister, Memorial Day for me is a reminder of what’s been lost—but also an opportunity to remember what’s been gained through the character and integrity of our heroes. They lived by the words that guide us at TMF every day: “If not me, then who…” It’s why #TheHonorProject exists. We believe it’s our duty to show every fallen hero the respect and gratitude they deserve.
