Be sure to join us Friday, June 5th at The Chattanoogan Hotel Banquet Center, Chattanooga, TN for an unforgettable night honoring the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom. Our featured speaker will be LTG (Ret.) William G. “Jerry” Boykin. LTG Boykin was one of the elite warriors chosen in 1978 to make up the first unit in America’s deadly Delta Force. He then became commander of the unit, and later still, commander of all U.S. Army Special Forces. Also in attendance will be wounded warrior Taylor Morris, who will be sharing his story. Taylor Morris (Retired, Navy, EOD) is one of only five quadruple amputees from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to survive his injuries. Our 1st American Heroes Dinner sold out quickly, and seating is limited, so register now to make sure you don’t miss this inspiring evening.  (Click to Watch the 2014 Dinner Video)

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.”
(RET) Col. Danny McKnight

After his retirement from the Army SGT Josh Wetzel returned to college. The Honoring the Sacrifice Foundation was able to provide SGT Wetzel with this computer system and a wheelchair accessible desk to help as he begins this new phase in his life.

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.

Window Treatments

Provided much needed window treatments in the home of a recently retired service member suffering from a traumatic brain injury.
