HEED THE CALL
Our nation has always been fortunate. Through the decades, our fellow citizens have defended our communities as members of the armed services. On land, at sea and in the air, many have given much to maintain the American ideal.
But every year in Colorado, thousands of veterans, from World War II to the Global War on Terror, are buried without meaningful military honors. The reasons are simple: lack of personnel, lack of funds—the story would be mundane if it weren't so tragic. These men and women who selflessly offered their lives to protect our Liberty and our values are laid to rest without even the honors that were promised to them. And while all parties do their best, there is still more that can be done.
The Honor Bell Foundation seeks to remedy that, by creating a community of veterans to foster public appreciation of military service, and honor their fellow veterans with a proper, final tribute. We have commissioned a custom Honor Bell, forged from bronze, including medals and insignia from veterans, to be rung by a corps of former service members from all conflicts and military branches. Through our Bell Honors Program, which will sound at veterans' funeral services, to our Veterans Outreach and Bell Guard programs, we intend to make sure that those who offered their lives as the price of Freedom will have their honors tolled throughout the land.
Whether you donate, advocate, or participate, we need you.
Ready to help our vets, families of those killed in the line of duty, and students who want to learn more about those who serve our country? Getting involved is easy! You can contribute towards the installation and operation of the Honor Bell, become a member of the Bell Honor Guard, or contact us today to see how you can help. Every person counts in this effort, and we're glad to have you on board!
