Forgotten Heroes Campaign

Forgotten Heroes Campaign

The Forgotten Heroes Campaign is a nonprofit organization founded in 1998 that directs searches for veterans who have honorably served their country, and present them or their family member(s): medals; awards; ribbons and badges earned but never received. A public ceremony is held to present the awards to the deserving veteran. The Forgotten Heroes Campaign also supports other Veteran’s organizations.

While we do not fully know how many men and women never received their medals, we do know there are many from every conflict since World War I. This occurs for many reasons including: rapid de-mobilization; poor record keeping and inefficiency and some veterans were evacuated from war zones due to injuries and their records were never forwarded to them while they were convalescing or returning home.

Volunteer opportunities may include helping with award ceremonies, library and church visits, and the annual golf tournament fundraising event.
