Letter from the Director

Thanks to the support from so many individuals, corporations, foundations, and race partners, we were able to both grow our reach and increase our depth in veteran-enriching programs across the Nation. We have been humbled and honored by every single investment dedicated to enriching lives. Every contribution tells a story, from the transformative partnerships with companies and foundations, through committed citizens, to the Eagles championing our mission.

In 2015, we were able to completely fund our core programs, launch new initiatives to amplify them, and add human infrastructure to provide leadership and guide execution. We are stronger today because of all of you, and we want to express our deepest gratitude for your support. Thank you all for being such incredible champions of Eagle Nation!

Thank You

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve…shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”
