OUR MISSION

GratitudeAmerica’s mission is to champion an alliance of service & support organizations that partner to provide comprehensive community resources for veterans, their families, and the families of the fallen. These American heroes are owed a debt we can never fully repay, but we are passionate about making a significant difference in their lives.

America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.
― Allen Boyd
