Honor Bell tolls for veterans at numerous events around Veterans Day

Throughout the week surrounding Veterans Day the Honor Bell could be found across the Front Range, from Colorado Springs, to Gilpin County, to the University of Denver, and Golden. We helped to honor the first veterans interred at Pikes Peak National Cemetery, told schoolchildren about the importance of respecting veterans’ service, participated in numerous ceremonies surrounding the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice, and saluted our veteran volunteers. Read on for images and stories from our busy 2018 Veterans Week.

Join us as we cast the Honor Bell

In just a week's time the Honor Bell team will be in Cincinnati, Ohio to cast the Honor Bell! We are driving the artifacts from Colorado to Ohio May 7–8, and casting them with the rest of the bell's bronze into the mold on the 9th. After the Bell has cooled, the mold broken away from it, and mounted onto its custom-built tray, we will bring it home May 21-24.

Join us on some or all of the journey! For details, visit our event page.

Thank you to our Forged From Honor: An Artifact Dedication Event Sponsors!

We are fortunate to have so many great organizations, from so many different industries, supporting the mission of The Honor Bell Foundation. These sponsors have provided logistical, in-kind, and monetary support to ensure that the Foundation can carry out its mission to create a community of veterans to foster public appreciation of military service and honor their fellow veterans with a proper, final tribute.

Our Forged From Honor Artifact Dedication Event will bring together military medals, dog tags, and other artifacts from a dozen deceased service members, which will be melted down and incorporated into The Honor Bell when it is cast in May. This will make the Bell truly "Forged From Honor." These artifacts represent conflicts from World War II through Operation Enduring Freedom, and come from all five branches of service. They represent a wide range of military experiences, from Medal of Honor recipients to reservists. This all-encompassing group symbolizes the Bell's mission to provide a final honor for all veterans.

These sponsors have come together to help make our artifact dedication event a success. Please join us in thanking them!

We are getting everything set for our Artifact Dedication Event on the 24th! The latest news: Tony Kovaleski, investigative journalist for KMGH Channel 7 in Denver, will be our Master of Ceremonies. His career has included on-scene reporting from New York City in the aftermath of 9/11, the foiled plot of an Aurora man to bomb New York's subway, and a documentary that exposed a lack of on-site ambulances at Denver International Airport—a situation that changed after his report.
