Founder’s Message

July 4, 2012

Welcome to GratitudeAmerica. We are pleased to launch our website and will update it regularly with the exciting progress we are making toward our mission to better connect, coordinate and collaborate with community-based services and grassroots support for military service members, veterans, their families and families of the fallen. We are proud to be affiliated with the Staff Sergeant Donnie Dixon Center and Easter Seals in our endeavors which will assist communities and individuals throughout the United States with their initiatives for these heroes and their families.

While GratitudeAmerica is an independent organization, our goal is to collaborate with other nonprofits – not to compete with them. Combining efforts and best practices will allow us to achieve the greatest benefit. We know a stronger and better America will result from supporting these heroes as they navigate the path to returning to productive roles in civilian life.

I am proud to serve with the other founding members of our corporate Board of Directors, retired U.S. Air Force Four Star General J.B. Davis and Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D. I am also extraordinarily honored that Senator Bob Dole, a war hero and great American, serves as GratitudeAmerica’s esteemed Honorary Chairman. We are greatly appreciative of the support of the outstanding members of our prestigious advisory board.

Please register for updates, visit our site often and consider pledging your support to our deserving heroes and their families as we make these opportunities available. We owe them more than we can ever repay.

Thank you for your interest and your support. God Bless America!

Lewis H. Jordan

Founder and CEO
