HERoes in Deed was inspired by the memory of our HERo, LTC Jaimie E. Leonard, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 8, 2013.
In an article she wrote for her home town paper in Warwick, New York on Memorial Day 2010, Jaimie wrote …
“…Remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country in war, but also honor those others who sacrifice in other ways to make this country great – law enforcement, firefighters, teachers, volunteers, etc. Please honor them in deed and not just giving thanks, parades, or planting flowers or flags on graves. Take measure of what have you done for your country and ask yourself if you could do more.”
