After being rocked by the events of July 16, 2015, Honoring the Sacrifice was proud to spend the day with new recruits and the staff at the Lee Highway Marine Corp Recruiting Station in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

It was great to see a new group of recruits ready to make the commitment to serve our Country. After pull-ups, push-ups and then a run, everyone headed to the park for pizza and brownies. It was a great day!

We enjoyed time spent with true American 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.”

Paved Driveway

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