Voyage of Valor
A once-in-a-lifetime trip to honor our Veterans
Voyage of Valor celebrates Veterans with a chance to visit our nation’s capital to see the monuments and memorials built in honor of their service and sacrifice.
Over four days, they develop meaningful connections and share unforgettable moments while reflecting upon their service to our country.
“Between the scenery, monuments, the people I met, the staff, and the wonderful time I had with my granddaughter and her partner, this trip will be etched in my heart forever. I am honored to have been a wish recipient and will remember this for the rest of my years.”
— George, 97

Meet our 2023 Voyagers
Our eleven veterans represent several wars and conflicts and have 131.5 years of collective service. Some enlisted before their 18th birthday, some followed in their families’ footsteps and volunteered, and others challenged societal expectations by enlisting.
They all answered the call to serve their country.
