What is a hero? A hero is defined as a person who would risk life and limb for the sake of others. On June 5th at the Chattanoogan Hotel in Chattanooga TN we will hear from two American Heroes. Lt. General Jerry Boykin and Taylor Morris (Navy EOD Retired) will share their stories of courage.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to spend a very special evening honoring our heroes.

Our Mission

To provide assistance and support to meet the unique and specific needs of post 9/11, Purple Heart recipients and their families.

Who We Are

The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation was formed in 2013 by wounded US Army Sgt Andrew Smith and his wife Tori. Together with a dedicated team of volunteers, the husband and wife duo are assisting service members and their families, just as they have been supported during their journey. We are a 501(c)3 public benefit charity. Our Board of Directors is made up entirely of volunteers who are committed to their mission of helping our wounded heroes.

How We Help

The goal of The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation is to provide the needed resources, financial and material, to severely injured men and women and their immediate families, whose injuries were incurred while in service to our country.

“It’s impossible to do enough for these guys, all we can do is try to do more every day.”

Chaz Allen was severely injured in Afghanistan in 2011. Honoring the Sacrifice was proud to provide adaptive appliances for his forever home, which he and his family will be moving into this summer.

Home Adaptations

Adapt a young soldier’s home so he can maneuver his wheelchair through all entries and regain his sense of independence.

Paved Driveway

Paved a sidewalk and driveway for a wounded Army SGT in Alabama so he can safely exit his new home.

Lawn Mower

Purchased a zero-turn radius lawn mower for a wounded soldier who lost his legs in an IED blast.


A combat medic from Colorado Springs requested assistance making his new home handicap-accessible. HTS provided much needed assistance to help meet that need.
