It’s a community event to bring together families of the fallen, veterans, and civilians in a healing environment to honor our fallen service members to honor, heal, and connect. Memories of Honor strongly believe that our fallen and their families deserve to be honored, remembered, and recognized more than one day per year. This is why our mission is to make every day Memorial Day.

“We believe our fallen service members and their families deserve to be honored and remembered not just on Memorial Day, but every day,” said Amy Cotta, founder of Memories of Honor. “Our mission is to make every day Memorial Day by creating living, breathing memorials so no life loss as a result of serving our country goes forgotten.”
