Everyday thousands of U.S. servicemen and women lay down their lives and risk everything to serve their country. These men and women are heroes. For those who are tragically lost while serving all of us, they leave behind more than a legacy, they leave behind a family. The effects of losing a parent in the line of duty can be life-shattering for a young child.
The Solution Offered by TAPS
You will help pick up the pieces of a devastating loss and bring healing to a grieving child. The mending process occurs at a camp where children of fallen soldiers receive coping skills, grief counseling, peer support and mentorship. As part of the restoration, these children will receive a mentor, currently an active service member, who will guide them through life and help fill the void of losing a parent and be a role model. Join us in honoring the men and women who have died for their county and the children who bravely battle on.
