Our Mission, Vision, & Values

Our Mission

The mission of Legacies Alive is to strengthen and support the Gold Star families of our nation’s fallen heroes and to bring national awareness to the life and character of all service members who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Founded by combat veterans, we feel a special connection with these families and are deeply committed to our cause. We accomplish our mission by providing unwavering support to Gold Star families and by ensuring the legacies of our fallen heroes are forever alive.

Our Vision

Our vision is for every American to understand and appreciate the sacrifices that Gold Star families have made and continue to make for our freedom.

Our team wants to be able to ask any American, in any corner of this wonderful country, “What is a Gold Star family?” and he or she can say, “A family that sacrificed so that I may be free.”

Our Motto

To our nation's Gold Star families, your sacrifice is not forgotten.

To our fallen American heroes, your legacies are forever alive.
