American military families cope with the loss of their loved ones every day. Their perseverance inspires Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation to honor the legacy of the bravest men and women who have gave their lives in defense of our country.
When surviving scholars step on campus for the first time this August, they will be taking steps toward a dream that their mother or father died to protect. Scholars’ drive to succeed in honor of their fallen parent’s legacy inspires Fallen Patriots to make college affordable for ALL children of the fallen.
Paige Garber’s dad served in the U.S. Navy and passed away while deployed aboard the USS Eisenhower in the North Arabian Sea. After Garber’s passing, his impact in the lives of others was evident. Over 600 sailors and marines volunteered and lined the street leading to the chapel where his memorial service was held.
“Because of my dad’s sacrifice, he changed lives,” explained Paige Garber. “It is because of the impact that he made in the lives of others that his sacrifice will always inspire me to serve and love others unconditionally, just like he did.”
The possibilities and chances to help inspire scholars are endless. With the support of partners along with every individual contribution, we can continue to increase funds for the families we support and make college dreams a reality.
