The We Can Be Heroes Foundation hosted its spring Tribute to Our Heroes Brunch at the Salem Centre Auditorium in late March with the room filled to capacity (given the current COVID restrictions). Unsung heroes from around the country were recognized for their sacrifices for the good of their neighbors, their country and its future.
The event featured a catered brunch followed by young Marines from the Atlantic Coast Young Marines formally presenting the Colors. Many tables were labelled with the names of a Veteran or community hero, donated by their loved ones to honor them. Two special heroes in attendance were Jacksonville World War II Veterans Frank Pupura and John Connelly.
In addition to being recognized at the brunch, each unsung hero is delivered the Foundation’s Unsung Hero Lives Here yard sign. The event concluded with presentations from Hillsdale College Professor Dr. Adam Carrington on America’s freedom and Concerned Veterans for America Coalition Director Jimmie Smith on endless wars.
Sponsors of the event included Americans for Prosperity, Concerned Veterans for America, and K9S for Warriors.
