Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation serves surviving military children from all parts of the country. We aim to constantly expand the number of scholars we help. In an effort to create awareness and honor children of the fallen, we are striving to have every city and state proclaim May 13th as Children of Fallen Patriots Day.
The men and woman of our Armed Forces continue to work together to protect and serve the citizens of the United States and throughout our nation’s history many of these patriots have given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Children of Fallen Patriots day is a special time that recognizes the sacrifice and bravery surviving military children have endured.
In 2014, mayors and governors across the country, including military-friendly Jacksonville, Washington DC, Charlotte, Columbus, Dallas, and Birmingham, as well as the state of Florida, officially proclaimed Fallen Patriots Day. With the support of local governments, we can continue to increase awareness for the families we support and make a deep-rooted difference. As the New Year begins and our efforts continue, the city of Austin, as well as the state of Maine, have officially proclaimed Fallen Patriots Day.
Nearly 20,000 children have lost an active duty parent in the military over the last 35 years. By providing support for surviving children, Fallen Patriots is making an instrumental investment in the future of America. In 2017 and beyond, we are actively striving to make Children of Fallen Patriots Day a national day of recognition.
