Homefront Help: American Hero Project
The American Hero Project is elegant in its simplicity and powerful in its impact. Each week, the organization uses its website and Facebook page to tell the story of a U.S. service member killed in the line of duty. A photo of each hero is included so visitors can see the faces of those people who gave their lives for a cause beyond themselves. The effort's founders both are veterans seeking to ensure that fallen heroes receive attention and to raise awareness of veterans' causes. Anyone with a story about fallen hero or who would like to see a loved one featured on the sites can contact American Hero Project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The organization is working toward becoming a nonprofit organization so donations will be tax deductible. American Hero Project personnel are asking anyone who can help with that effort, especially in terms of acting as or suggesting a good nonprofit attorney who will work pro bono to help with the incorporation process, to please contact them.
Homefront Help also has a Facebook page where visitors can gather and share information. If you know of a program that is helping service personnel, veterans or their families please submit that information to Rita Boland, SIGNAL's news editor.
