Proceeds from Letterbox Sales to Benefit Honor and Remember Mission
Chesapeake, VA (Thursday, October 18, 2012) – Honor and Remember, Inc. is teaming with The Dreifa™ Initiative for a major fundraising initiative. Proceeds from the Honor and Remember Letterbox campaign will help support its mission of establishing an official national symbol of remembrance for our fallen heroes and their families by bringing tribute to the men and women from all generations who gave their lives in military service to the United States.
Gold Star Father George Lutz, founder of Honor and Remember, lost his son Tony in Iraq in 2005. Three years later, he began a national journey to ensure that no American service member who has paid the ultimate price is ever forgotten. Mr. Lutz has made it his lifelong mission to encourage lawmakers to implement The Honor and Remember Flag as an official national symbol of remembrance. In America’s history, there has never been a national symbol that recognizes the ultimate sacrifice made by members of our military. The Honor and Remember Flag was created for that purpose.
Mr. Lutz has crisscrossed the country, travelling nearly 30,000 miles, meeting with legislators in all 50 states to make this happen. Thanks to his steadfast commitment, The Honor and Remember Flag is now official in 14 states.
Proceeds from the Honor and Remember Letterbox Campaign will help:
- Fund the Honor and Remember mission
- Facilitate the adoption of the Honor and Remember symbol as a national flag
- Provide flags for all families who have lost loved ones in the military to preserve our freedoms
- Educate our youth about the cost of freedom
Lutz remarked, “This is a wonderful opportunity to give a classic gift to someone special and help us continue our mission of recognizing the sacrifice of our fallen military heroes and their families by establishing the Honor and Remember Flag and presenting every Gold Star Family a personalized tribute as a public expression of appreciation.”

About Honor and Remember, Inc.®
After the death of his eldest son, Tony, in Iraq, Gold Star father George Lutz recognized the need to educate the nation about the precious cost of freedom. His mission became raising awareness about the sacrifice made by military men and women who died for their country through the creation and establishment of a distinct and tangible symbol. The Honor and Remember Flag was unveiled nationally on Memorial Day 2008 to perpetually recognize the sacrifice of our fallen military heroes and their families. The flag is now being endorsed by veteran and service organizations and adopted by cities and states. And it is being flown by patriotic Americans across our nation and is fast becoming a nationally accepted symbol of remembrance. One of our major goals is the presentation of personalized Honor and Remember Flags to individual families of every military fallen hero. Hundreds of Honor and Remember Flags have already been presented across the USA to the families who have lost loved ones in military conflicts over many generations. Additionally, more than 20 states have either adopted the flag or endorsed its use. For more information, please visit www.HonorandRemember.org.
