2017 American Patriot Award

Each year at their annual American Heroes Dinner, Honoring The Sacrifice presents their American Patriot Award to a company, organization, or individual who demonstrate a commitment to supporting and assisting our nation’s wounded veterans. This year’s recipient was WUSY US-101. In front of a sold-out crowd, Ken Hicks accepted the award on behalf of US-101. The American Patriot Award is a beautiful and artistic one-of-a-kind piece created by artist Chris Mosey for the foundation by iGNiS Glass Gallery & Studio in Chattanooga, TN.

Young Marines

Honoring the Sacrifice is proud of the next generation of Marines. The Southeast Tennessee Area Young Marines is a youth education and service program for boys and girls. Last fall the Young Marines raised pledges and donations through a ruck-a-thon for HTS, and at the American Heroes Dinner they assisted in a variety of ways. The Young Marines are committed to character building, leadership, and the promotion of a healthy drug-free lifestyle. Honoring the Sacrifice appreciates their support, and encourages them to honor and respect our veterans.

American Heroes

We were privileged to host a group of true heroes at our dinner event last summer. Those who have served and sacrificed deserve our honor and respect for all that they have done to promote the cause of liberty. Pictured with our heroes is Lt. Col. Oliver North, our keynote speaker at this year’s American Heroes Dinner. Honoring the Sacrifice extends our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the service of all our veterans.

Event and Information Videos

The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation was formed in 2013 by wounded United States Army Sgt. Andrew Smith (retired) 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.
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.
The mission of the Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation is to provide direct assistance and support to meet the unique and specific needs of post 9/11, Purple Heart recipients and their families.
