Wall of Pride
To honor and help our Heroes

In honor of those who signed on the dotted line that they were willing
to pay up to and including their life in defense of our great Nation,
a Wall of Pride has been built around the flag pole at Stand Down House.

We are offering commemorative bricks, to be placed on the Wall of Pride,
that can be purchased in honor and/or memory of a Veteran, Military Service
Member or Reservist (living, deceased, or POW MIA) or as a sign of respect
and gratitude for our Military Heroes. The interior of the horseshoe-shaped wall
faces the parking lot so that those honored and remembered can be easily seen.
All proceeds will benefit our past & present Military Service Members.

You can purchase a commemorative brick using the form below
(and pay with your PayPal account or a Credit Card) or by check.

The Village of Valor
Groundbreaking & Dedication Ceremony

On November 11, 2014, we held a dedication & groundbreaking ceremony

veterans and veteran families and future home of Stand Down House!
