This May, join us in celebrating HONOR WEEK as we show our appreciation for those who make Nashville a safe place to live, work, and play. During this week-long series of events leading up to Memorial Day, we will honor, encourage, and remember our veterans, first responders, and all who put themselves in harm’s way to serve others.
Thursday, May 23 – Honor Week Luncheon
Nashville’s premier Memorial Day event brings corporate and community leaders together to honor remarkable moments of bravery and sacrifice in our community. We’ll hear from our keynote speaker, Air Force One Pilot Col. Mark Tillman, and will award the second annual “Extraordinary Service Award” to an individual who has demonstrated courage and selflessness in the face of trials. Guests will be invited to donate to provide trauma healing for combat veterans and first responders.
601 4th Ave S, Nashville, TN
Monday, May 27 – Memorial Day Service
Join us at the Middle Tennessee Veterans Cemetery for a special Memorial Day service honoring our fallen heroes. The service will include a reading of names and stirring renditions of patriotic hymns as we remember those who have gone before us and made a way for our freedom.
Friday, May 24 – Encouragement Friday
The best way to honor the fallen is to serve those who are still with us. On Encouragement Friday, you’re invited to join thousands of Nashvillians in writing notes of encouragement to military and first responder families in our community. These notes will be distributed to REBOOT combat trauma and first responder healing course participants to let them know they aren’t forgotten or alone. You may not know their names, but you can offer hope and show them you care with just a few supportive words. Get your whole company, church, or neighborhood involved!
