What we do from Frontliners TV.
That’s where you will find our troops and trees, sea to shining sea. Started the Christmas of 2019, our first tribute of a dozen troop covered trees made their debut in Greensboro, NC. Last year we visited 7 counties and 14 cities at over 50 events with our tribute. This year we have been invited to events all over the country thanks to the VFW and other veteran service organizations and events.
We are always looking for sponsors for our project. We are beyond excited to announce our first official sponsor:
COLUMBIA FOREST PRODUCTS.
They provide the wood that we create the photo mementos from. We are so very grateful for the use of their product!
The Tree of Valor is a 501(c)3 organization. Before becoming a nonprofit, the project was funded by the generosities of great Americans with donations of photos, trees, supplies, volunteers, and plenty of places in NC for veterans and their families to come visit the troops and trees. We love joining forces with other VSO’s and sharing their mission.
We can’t say thank you enough for the trips you’ve taken our troops on! It makes my heart stop when I see BEST TRUCKING pull up to pick up our trees and troops.
We are adding to our list of states where the Tree of Valor tribute has been scheduled for an event in 2023:
And our newest…
1. Where do you get the photos?
A myriad of places including but not limited to family, friends, associates, communities we serve, nominated photos, & historical events.
2. What is the reason for the different colored trees?
Green is for active military and veterans. White is for those killed in action, training accidents, and suicides. Gold is for Gold Star families, silver is for the Twin Towers, and purple are for Purple Heart recipients.
3. Why did you start this?
When our son became a Marine, we started collecting photos of family and friends who were in the military as a way to show our son the story he was a part of. The goal was just to let him know how much we appreciated him. We made the photos into wooden mementos not knowing what would become of them.
One simple Christmas tree became a Tree of Valor. That tree became a forest where veterans and their families find a solace that only they understand. Our mission is to never let their sacrifice be forgotten.
