Community & Education

We’re working to bridge the gap between our defender and civilian communities. Honoring America’s heroes both past and present, and inspiring the next generation to do the same, is a responsibility we all share.


Soaring Valor

We’re bringing World War II veterans and their guardians to New Orleans to tour The National WWII Museum built in their honor. Their experience includes entertainment, celebratory meals, and community building with their fellow heroes. Students who accompany our veterans carry on their stories with a new appreciation for the sacrifices made by an entire generation.

Serving Heroes

Nothing offers an opportunity to bond and give thanks quite like breaking bread together. We’re showing gratitude to our defenders by serving them hearty, classic American meals nationwide and at military outposts in Germany and Korea.
