What is Field of Honor®?
The Field of Honor® program is part of a national movement that started out as a way to commemorate the lives lost on September 11, 2001. In just a short amount of time, the concept has grown and communities like ours across America are turning to Field of Honor® tributes to raise money and awareness for a growing array of causes. The Field of Honor® is a community project of remembrance, and an expression of humanity and patriotism.
VetRest is a non-profit organization that began in 2013 as an initiative to help veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). Medical studies show that there is often a direct link between veterans suffering from PTS and suicides. With the help of several West Point graduates and friends concerned about veterans, Major General Dan York launched VetREST to facilitate Restoration, Encouragement, Solace and Training for our nation’s veterans. VetREST is committed to helping veterans identify the cause of their PTS in an environment to promote healing so they can live a healthy lifestyle.
