Duty – Just as our veterans answered their nation’s call of duty, we believe it is our duty to preserve their stories for future generations.
Honor – We believe that our veterans deserve to be honored by all those they liberated and protected.
Sacrifice – Our veterans have sacrificed so much to secure our liberties and safety, and deserve to be remembered for those sacrifices.
Preservation – The veterans who have served us in so many ways deserve to have their actions preserved and immortalized, that they may not be forgotten, and that others may not have to repeat their heroic actions
