We would like to thank the media outlets who have taken an interest in PreserveandHonor.com and picked up the story. Our biggest thanks are to all of you who have contacted us with feed back and offers of help. Your emails have been inspiring and greatly appreciated.
For those who want to help PreserveandHonor.com, we currently have two ways.
First, we need website volunteers. Currently PreserveandHonor only lists whether the fallen hero was a Purple Heart recipient. We would like to expand our database to show all awards received by each hero. Volunteers can help by “browsing” our database photographs and noting awards shown for each hero. Volunteers can also check for spelling errors by comparing what is on the photograph of each grave marker with the information we have recorded. If you are interested in assisting this effort, please email us at [email protected] We will provide you with an easy to use spreadsheet to record the information and then email back to us.
Second, only fraction of our fallen heroes who served in the Global War on Terror are buried at Arlington . With your help we can include those who are buried else where. If you have heroes from the Global War on Terror who are buried in your hometown or nearby, please send us an email at [email protected] with:
- The name of the cemetery
- The town and state where it is located (and address if available)
- The grave number or location within the cemetery (military cemeteries record the grave number on the back of each marker)
- A close-up photograph of the grave marker so that we can clearly read the inscription. You can use our photographs as an example. Also, please take all photographs in the portrait position (vertical).
Most importantly, please remember to respect the grief of loved ones and friends who may be visiting the cemetery you are helping to document.
