Wall of Honor

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Each year on Veterans Day, Hope For The Warriors® honors the thousands of Americans who have served this country—past and present.  These are the men and women who have raised their right hands and recited the words above. We honor veterans spanning multiple generations throughout this country. 

Who do you honor?  Do you honor a parent or grandparent, sibling or child, spouse or friend who has served our country?  Perhaps you took the oath too—surrounded by friends and comrades who served with you through times of war and peace. Sadly, the service of some led to the ultimate sacrifice. This Veterans Day, we honor their memory.

This year, I am pleased to share the Wall of Honor.  The Wall of Honor will highlight those veterans that each of you remember, honor, and respect.  Throughout the month of November, when you make a donation to Hope For The Warriors®, we hope that you will also include the name of a service member or veteran in the Tribute Section. That name will be added to the Wall of Honor for all of our supporters to read. 

Double Your Donation

One veteran’s name on the Wall of Honor is John Stewart Morton, Jr. After completing his service in World War II, this noble veteran went on to serve another 25 years in the Maryland National Guard. 

For the third consecutive year, The John Stewart Morton, Jr. Gift Fund has offered Hope For The Warriors® a gift matching opportunity. His family will match donations, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000, until the end of the year. This gift matching campaign has been a great success the last two years.  Thank you for all of your support!

The John Stewart Morton, Jr. Gift Fund matching funds campaign has been bolstered this year by an additional $15,000 from the Andrew & Lillian A. Posey Foundation. The two foundations will match your donations, dollar for dollar, up to $40,000.

We hope that you will support us by donating today and share with us the name of a service member or veterans who is important to you.  Thank you for your support!
