Part of our mission is to bring awareness to the issues facing surviving military spouses and children. Additionally, we try to focus on the growing number of resources that are available to them. Although there is still much more work to do, many survivors, like our Chairman are finding there is healing in helping others.

Some local children in Temecula ran a lemonade stand during Memorial Day and donated their funds to the Sugar Bear Foundation. We were so touched and could not help but think their actions resembled those of our hero and his desire to give back. What an awesome act of kindness!
