HERoes in Deed was inspired by the memory of our HERo, LTC Jaimie E. Leonard, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 8, 2013.
“…Remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country in war, but also honor those others who sacrifice in other ways to make this country great – law enforcement, firefighters, teachers, volunteers, etc. Please honor them in deed and not just giving thanks, parades, or planting flowers or flags on graves. Take measure of what have you done for your country and ask yourself if you could do more.”
The mission of HERoes in Deed is to inspire, educate and engage communities to serve those that serve. Our first community is Jaimie's home town of Warwick, New York. We hope to make a difference in Warwick, replicate what we learn and launch similar programs in other communities in the future.
