After six years of hard work, community involvement, determination and active fundraising, we dedicated the Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial on May 27, 2016 in Boston's Seaport District. We encourage you to visit the Memorial, and take time to reflect and appreciate the sacrifices of the Commonwealth's service men and women.
Our organization is dedicated to maintaining and preserving the Memorial. The work we do to Honor the Fallen was our beginning. We have since evolved into an organization whose mission will continue to Empower returning Veterans and active duty military personnel (Massachusetts Veteran's Edge), all while we continue to Honor our Fallen and Support their families left behind. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes and Massachusetts Veteran's Edge are dedicated to further outreach and program development.
Our mission going forward is to strengthen the connections between Massachusetts Veterans and Gold Star Families. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is actively working on new programs for our Gold Star Families, new partnerships and our Education Program which launched in 2016. Massachusetts Veteran's Edge will focus on empowering Veterans and transitioning military personnel on active duty.
