Honor and Remember, Inc. exists to perpetually recognize the sacrifice of our military fallen heroes and their families. In large part by the establishment of a national public symbol of remembrance – A visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms.
Our vision is to reach the nation and recognize all fallen military heroes with a tangible symbol of appreciation and educate our citizens on the reason and importance of recognizing our fallen and their families. We will gift every Gold Star family who has lost a loved one a personalized flag to honor their sacrifice.
We want to be a premier source of giving tribute to military fallen heroes in the United States. The dynamics of our mission are:
• To insure that families of fallen heroes know that their sacrifice was not in vain.
• To assure them that their loved ones have not been forgotten
• To bestow honor by publicly remembering their loved one by name, with a personalized flag.
• To bring comfort through ongoing programs ensuring the families themselves are not forgotten.
The approach to solving the void of recognizing the sacrifice of these men and women and their families is public appreciation. We accomplish this by establishing a national symbol of remembrance, educating the nation on its meaning and importance, and by openly presenting personalized flags to Gold Star families across America.
The goals of the Honor and Remember organization include touching the individual lives of these wounded family members in very personal and meaningful ways.
This is achieved in part by state adoptions, by individuals and organizations understanding and publicly flying the Honor and Remember Flag and through public presentations of personalized flags to families of the fallen in ceremonies that express gratitude for their specific loved one's sacrifice for their specific loved one's sacrifice.
The plan for accomplishing our organizational goals include establishing a firm identity of the Honor and Remember Flag as the national symbol of remembrance; partnering with like-minded individuals and organizations both in various states and nationally in order to educate citizens and to identify and touch the individual lives of every Gold Star family.
These goals are fulfilled in part by the establishment of active Honor and Remember state chapters, growing grassroots support using national mainstream and social media, building strategic corporate partnerships, encouraging state adoptions, participating in compatible events and locating and communicating with gold star families.
With clear and concise organizational goals the ability to measure success is simple. Our primary objectives are based upon four core ideas; Establishing a national symbol, measured by the increasing state adoptions; Educating the general public, evident by the increasing number of flags being established in nationwide communities; Presenting personalized flags to Gold Star families, evident by a continued growth in requests and presentations; Comforting the families by bringing them opportunities to be recognized at public events.
Progress has been phenomenal since our inception, with measurable growth within the core of our 4 major goals. Establishment of Honor and Remember as the national symbol of remembrance, currently with 23 official state adoptions and many more in process. Educating the nation evident by the hundreds of presentations and events garnering media attention and supporters. Presenting personalized flags, measure by the nearly 3000 flags already in the hands of Gold Star families, an average of nearly one per day. And Comfort as we have hosted more than one thousand families at sporting events, banquets, national organized runs and other venues, continuing to give tribute to our fallen and their families. Clear and concise organizational goals that we continue to build upon every day.
