Standing Tall & Together!
The patriotic connection we share as Americans in admiration of the sacrifice made by those who served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces is on full display during those days of Honor to them.
By Standing Tall and Together with the United Relief Foundation; individuals, groups, organizations and businesses have found a rewarding connection to turn their admiration into action in the service of those who served.
Most of the good deeds done by the United Relief Foundation to help Veterans in need are without fanfare. However, even though we quietly go about doing good, our Making A Difference by Being The Difference is not going unnoticed or unappreciated by the Veterans we touch.
