A NOTE FROM JESSICA SHEPHERD, Eagle OPS Co-Founder and Honor Mile Coordinator:
Greetings! This will be my fourth year having the honor of taking the lead on Operation: Honor Mile. It has been and continues to be my most significant and rewarding work. It is truly a passion of mine to not only work in our veteran community, but to help ensure that those we have lost are not forgotten and that their families know that they are forever a part of OUR family.
I have experienced thru this process, the many layers of grief that exists, but one thing is always a constant, you want your loved one to be remembered. It has been a blessing to learn so many things about your heroes. Not only their faces and names or details of their service, but a glimpse of who they were, things they enjoyed etc. Thank you for that. There is a place at the bottom of the form for additional information. You are welcome to share anything you'd like there - from service information to a best memory or nothing at all. I just wanted you to know that I have read them all in the past, remember it when I see their faces and truly feel honored to know some things about the men and women who we honor at the Welcome Home 5K. They are not forgotten.
Sincere Gratitude and Respect,
~Founding Partner, Eagle OPS
