Add Your Loved One to the Grateful Nation Memorial Hero Wall

The Grateful Nation Memorial Hero Wall is an online home where surviving military families everywhere can honor and share stories about their loved ones.

When writing about your loved one, consider sharing how you honor your loved one, stories about a special time you had with him or her or about his or her personality and interests. In addition, be sure to follow these guidelines: 

  • Please keep your submission to 750 characters (including spaces) or less.
  • Avoid mentioning details around the circumstances of your loved one’s death.

Please bear in mind that TAPS reserves the right to edit any content that may be upsetting to visitors of this web page. Your loved one will not appear on the hero wall immediately; TAPS must review and approve each submission. We will only use your email address to identify you should we need to contact you about your submission. Thank you for sharing your story and the life and legacy of your loved one.
