The Price of Freedom Foundation

The Price of Freedom Foundation tells the Life Stories of those who paid the Ultimate Price for our freedom - those who die while serving in our nation’s armed forces.

Every person who paid this price deserves to be remembered and their sacrifice honored. Their lives had meaning and potential that was cut short. They left behind families and friends who loved them, and who grieve their loss.

We believe the best way to honor their sacrifice, help those left behind through their grief, and preserve their memories for future generations is to write their life story from beginning to end, and provide archival quality, hardbound editions of the book to the next of kin at no cost to them. 


Nation of Patriots

Nation of Patriots was formed in 2008 and is an all-volunteer, non-political, 501(C)3 nonprofit organization.

Their mission is to financially support struggling military families. They work all year round to assist these military-veteran families find stable financial ground and look with optimism to the future. They work with VA facilities and many other veteran organizations to help them locate and select the veteran families based on specific criteria.

Each year they have a Patriot Tour where service members, veterans and citizens go across the 48 contiguous United states carrying our great Flag with an exchange of Old Glory to another group of riders and drives in each state.
