Two people with a passion for honoring veterans launched this organization in January of 2020, just two months before "the world shut down" due to COVID-19. Our community connections did not disappoint as we'd already begun gathering sponsorships for an event that would not take place. We are grateful for them!
The North Alabama area is rich with opportunities to honor our heroes, but often times the dinners cost more than our senior veterans can afford. Your donations help us purchase tickets to these dinners and events where they are honored. THANK YOU!
Part of our mission involves capturing our heroes‘ stories of service and sacrifice. Video recording/editing can be expensive! We are grateful for your support in helping us to record them, and are going a a step farther to make sure they are SEEN!
Many are racing to video our WWII veterans' stories. But we are actively capturing stories from Korean War and Vietnam War veterans as well. And we are working to integrate them into our school systems in an easy and free platform for teachers across many subjects, not just for history classes!
Some of our veterans want to travel to Washington, DC and museums elsewhere that relate to their service. . Trips to honor and remember their brothers and sisters who didn't make it home bring much healing to them. Thank you for your contributions to these Honor Trips!
What a sense of belonging our heroes feel when they can go somewhere as a group and be recognized simply by their attire! Personalized jackets with their names, patches from their units, and the American flag help them represent at any occasion/event. We award these during their birthday month!
My support for the Honoring Veteran Legacies has been unwavering since its inception. Why? Because the men and women who have given their service to our country so that we can live free has been unwavering. The mission of serving those veterans who sacrificed so much for us is now our responsibility. Honoring Veterans Legacies serves to provide time and resources to support our veterans to let them know that they are not forgotten but honored for today and for always. We shall never forget them! Thank you to this great organization for their love and support of our veterans.
