Vets4Energy is a group of volunteer veterans who continue to serve America as advocates for energy policies to sustain our national security. 
Representing all branches and ranks of the military, they partner with Veteran Service Organizations (VSO’s) across the country to deliver the message that Energy Security = National Security.  These Veterans, who have dedicated their lives to protect our nation, remain a strong voice to policymakers to convey the importance of energy to our national security.

A group of friends, who served in different branches of our Armed Forces, got together after coming home from their latest deployment. They shared their experiences of not just what took place overseas, but for some, what they went through after returning home. For a few, it was returning to their families and jobs. For others, it was back to school. But for most, there were some sort of medical or legal needs that needed attention. Those experiences and the experience of going through various V.A. programs to integrate back to normal life led to the creation of Honoring Our Troops. The largest question before the group was what could they best do to help their fellow Vets? One of the members was a lawyer, so a “Veterans’ Legal Clinic” was formed. Another member saw first-hand the difficulties and pain his amputee friend was experiencing. So, “Healing Our Heroes” was developed to fill that need. Some Vets while deployed recalled the joy of receiving an unexpected care package from home. “America Cares” continues that tradition and reminds our deployed soldiers that our hearts are with them. Due to current market conditions, many veterans have experienced challenges in transitioning from a military to a civilian career so the “Mentorship Program” was formed to bridge that gap. Up until now, all of these programs were quietly done without press releases or a call to action to the general public. These programs were done to fill a need and out of a sense of duty and honor

Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial 


The Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial was founded and established in 2005 by several local Veterans who had a vision to build a beautiful tribute to all of the men and women in uniform from Ohio that have made the ultimate sacrifice defending our Country in the Global War on Terrorism since September 11, 2000.Thanks to the efforts of countless volunteers, the Village of Sunbury and many financial contributors the memorial became a reality when it was dedicated on June 30, 2007.

The Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial is recognized by Ohio House Resolution 30 as Ohio’s only recognized Memorial honoring all Ohio Military personnel killed in the War on Terrorism




Their mission is simple – to fly as many World War II veterans to their memorial in Washington DC as they can – as fast as they can, at no cost to veterans. They also need "Guardians" who will volunteer to escort the veterans.

The men and women serving overseas in the U.S. military who risk their lives for us are often denied the basic right to vote. "Military Voting Rights USA" is a national network dedicated to ensuring that military voters have their votes cast and counted.
