#tbt No Man Left Behind Monument

Hope For The Warriors® is still so humbled by last week's unveiling of the No Man Left Behind Monument, which we are beyond proud to share with the Marine Corps aboard Camp Pendleton. 

The first No Man Left Behind Monument was unveiled at Camp Lejeune in 2013.

The iconic photo, Hell House, captured in Fallujah by acclaimed combat photographer Lucian Read

The iconic photograph depicts then 1stSgt Bradley Kasal, USMC, risking his life for the lives of his Marines. In turn, two of his Marines, Lance Corporals Chris Marquez and Dane Shaffer, risked their lives to carry him out of the building called "Hell House." 

The monument was created by Vietnam veteran, artist, and Gold Star Father John Phelps to honor those wounded in the line of duty and those who never returned home. John's son, LCpl Chance Phelps, USMC, was killed in action in April 2004. 

Hope For The Warriors is pleased by the opportunity to unveil the monument at Camp Pendleton, where it sits as a reminder of the ultimate price of battle, the spirit of brotherhood, and dedication known by service members and their families.
