TAPS Memorial Day Salute ~ #LoveLivesOn

"Who is Memorial Day for? It's for all of us. It's for all Americans to remember we enjoy our many freedoms because of a brave few who dedicated their lives to this country and who died much too soon from wounds seen and unseen." ~ Bonnie Carroll 




As the leading national nonprofit providing comfort and care for the families of America’s fallen heroes, TAPS honors those who have served and sacrificed on Memorial Day and every day. We are connected by a common thread, and we are part of a larger American legacy of grief and loss. On Memorial Day, we honor the holiday as a day of reverence and remembrance, shining a light on all who have served and died. On this page we have put together some resources to help you spread awareness about TAPS and the significance of Memorial Day.
