Our mission is to honor our military from today's War on Terror going back to World War II, including those who have died, while serving the USA. We do that by creating photo memorials, holding events open to veterans, their families and the public, and recording stories for future generations.
Since 2008, we have taken 2,100 World War II and Korea War Veterans to Washington D.C. On June 6, 2016, we took 500 Vietnam Combat Veterans from Nebraska on their trip to Washington D.C. and over 5,000 people welcomed them home at Eppley Airfield - for the Welcome Home they never received.

"Remembering Our Fallen" began in 2010 when we created the first traveling photo memorial of our country's Fallen from Nebraska. It has never stopped traveling Nebraska and continues to move weekly to communities all over the state. We have created memorials in 18 other states, which represent 60% of our country's Fallen from The War on Terror since 9/11/01. We have now turned the corner to create a NATIONAL memorial to include all of our country's Fallen, totaling almost 7,000. "Remembering Our Fallen" will be unveiled in Washington, D.C. in early September and then begin traveling the country. Gold Star families are those who have lost a loved one in the war, and their greatest fear is that s/he will be forgotten. "Remembering Our Fallen" helps to alleviate this fear, while reminding others of the tremendous cost of freedom.

The American Spirit Summit is a speaker series dedicated to high school students. The 4th Annual Summit was held 9-2-2016 and included Teri Roberts, mother of Andrea Kruger who was murdered. Teri not only lost her daughter, but in late 2015, contracted a bacteria that required the amputation of her hands and feet in order to save her life. Dr. Mark Adler and his wife, Joni, lost their son, Reid, to suicide after he was bullied, and they also spoke to the students. The speakers tell how they have overcome adversity and share humor in how they overcame their hardship. Students today are too quick to give up, and these role models will, hopefully, be someone they will remember when facing difficult times. Speakers in previous years include Bridget Kelly (raped and shot three times), Kris Paronto (one of the "13 Hours in Benghazi" contractors), Bobby Henline (burned from a roadside bomb in Iraq and now a stand-up comedian) and Chris Koch (Canadian farmer born without arms & legs), among a few others who have overcome great adversity. The 4th Annual Summit is scheduled for Sept 1, 2017.
Thank you notes from the Honor Flights included: "It was the trip of a lifetime." "It was one of the best days of my life." Another note
included these comments: "You all gave me my first and only homecoming! It was wonderful!"
And a daughter wrote: "After he heard he was selected to go on the flight, I could hear a change in him for the better."

REMEMBERING OUR FALLEN THANK YOU NOTES:If the purpose of a war memorial is to help us remember the sacrifices of the Heroes, and to help us heal from our sorrow, then your mission has been accomplished. Thank you for this tremendous gift.
