Fire Fighter Chief Patrick Childress Journey Home From Iraq RIP Papa
A Hero's Tribute's Mission:
To create memorial portraits and online memorials for your fallen firefighter, law enforcement officer or your military serviceman/woman. We help fallen families celebrate the life of their Hero. We will work with you on your most precious photos and memories. It is of the utmost importance that we show you that our Country has not and will not ever forget your sacrifice.
Our awesome puppets are ready to give bunches of hugs to all of our country's kids who have a parent that made the ultimate sacrifice in the military, fire service or in law enforcement.
There are many wonderful organizations that offer help to the families of our country's fallen heroes. We will be networking with them through Operation Prayer Pals and Operation Puppet Hugs.
Our New Programs for 2018
OPERATION PRAYER PALS
OPERATION PUPPET HUGS
Operation Prayer Pals will be teaching kids the POWER of PRAYER, to respect our COUNTRY'S FLAG and the SACRIFICE that makes it SACRED, and, to RESPECT & PRAY for all FIREFIGHTERS, POLICE OFFICERS and our MILITARY who PROTECT us and DEFEND us here at home and around the world. Our greatest mission is to pay TRIBUTE and HONOR the HEROES that have given their lives for us and their families. The future of our country rests in the hearts of our children and grandchildren.
This year our goal is to bring PTSD into the the forefront of peoples minds that this is a silent killer that effects our military and first responders. Throughout the coming weeks we will be providing a series of articles from top organizations that deal with PTSD and how we can all help to help our country's heroes.
