The Honor Bell: A Resounding Tribute for Colorado’s Heroes

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.

For Coloradans who have sacrificed selflessly by serving our state, we can offer a final salute — a graveside tribute that resounds with tradition, dignity, solemnity and respect. This is the mission of The Honor Bell Foundation, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization working to properly recognize departed veterans during burial services.

We do so with the Honor Bell, a 1000-pound bronze instrument specially forged from the legacy of other heroic servicemen and -women, which is tolled at public ceremonies and funeral rites to signal our respect and sound our loss.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have sacrificed and served our country and communities. Please support The Honor Bell Foundation in paying respectful tribute to these remarkable individuals. Sound your support with a donation or contact us to get involved.
