On Fridays we wear RED to Remember Everyone Deployed. This is one way to show solidarity, support and to remind people of our heroes that are deployed right now. Do you participate in RED Friday?

Happy Birthday, Helen!

You inspire me everyday, and have taught me so much, such as telling me that every little thing we do matters. You are one of the most selfless, kind, strong and driven people that I know. Thank you for being someone that I will look up to forever!

One year of Because of the Brave!

It’s hard to believe that one year ago I published Because of the Brave. Looking back, I was wondering if we would ever hit 100 followers on this page. Now, we have a following of over 3400 people and I am so thankful for each and every one of you. I can’t wait to continue our mission and to see what the next year brings us!

My all time favorite Veteran, my dad. There will never be enough words to describe how thankful I am for you. You have taught me lessons that I will carry for a lifetime. You are a hard worker, and put forth all your effort in anything you do. Love you more then you know!

Today we honor, remember and educate.

We honor those who have served our country, remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and educate one another on the importance of honoring our current and former service members. Today we show appreciation to those who have served in our military, and thank them for their heroic sacrifices. Remember, we are home of the free, because of the brave.

On October 22, 2015 Army Delta Force Master Sergeant Joshua Wheeler sacrificed his life to save others. Delta Force carried out a raid on a militant run prison in Iraq which freed 70 prisoners who would have been executed the next day. During his 20 year career Wheeler was Deployed 17 times and earned 11 Bronze Stars, 4 for Valor. Wheeler was posthumously awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart. This Cherokee Nation Citizen from Rowland, Oklahoma was always known for being especially giving and putting others needs before his own. MSGT Wheeler left behind his wife Ashley and four sons, Matthew, Zachariah, David, and Joshua Jr.

Here at Because of the Brave we will continue to perpetuate your legacy. The ultimate sacrifice you made will never be forgotten.
