Honoring Our Aging Heroes
Giving Back to Those Who Have Given So Much
We feel it is our privilege and duty to honor our elderly American veterans' by fulfilling their wishes. Sometimes a wish fulfills an immediate need such as a lift chair or hearing aids. Other times, the wish is a lifelong dream or a last wish such as Gus Siciliano's wish for a new flagpole and U.S. and POW flags to replace ones lost in a storm. Siciliano, a proud Army veteran and prisoner of war in a Nazi prison camp, was 92 and in hospice care at the time of is wish granting. A few months after his wish was granted, Siciliano passed away, but he did so knowing that others cared and appreciated his selfless service to our country.
Sadly, our "Greatest Generation" is disappearing, with WWII veterans dying at the rate of over 600 a day. Timing is critical with our elderly veterans as we work to grant their wishes. Right now, we are working to send two WWII veterans back to Normandy, France before it's too late.
