Remembering Those Who’ve Made the Ultimate Sacrifice for Our Freedom.
Gene Krizek

This Memorial Day, and every day, Americans Helping Americans® thanks our service men and women for putting their lives on the line for our country’s freedom. With grateful hearts we remember those who have lost their lives in the line of duty while fighting for our freedom.

My own father’s service in the trenches of World War I taught me a profound patriotism and love of country – values that served me well during my own military service. I am proud indeed that my grandson, imbued with those same values and patriotism, now serves in the U.S. Marine Corps.

That same patriotism inspired me to found Americans Helping Americans® 23 years ago as a direct response to the extreme poverty that exists within our country and the hardships faced by often overlooked populations in our own backyards.

Please honor our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day by donating to Americans Helping Americans® through a Memorial Gift. You can dedicate your donation to an important soldier in your life, or in memory of one who has made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

A safe Memorial Day to you and God Bless America,

Eugene L. Krizek, USAF Colonel (Ret.)
Founder and Volunteer Spokesperson, Americans Helping Americans®
