2016 Honorees

Since its inception, each month LHCP has honored a military service member who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Every box which is shipped from LHCP is labeled with information about the Honoree. The monthly Honoree’s story is attached to the box so others can read about those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. The only real criteria for the selection process is that LHCP has attempted to select a Fallen Hero from all 50 states and territories.

One of our contacts at the stateside VA hospital recently told me that they get cold chills reading the Honorees stories and share it with the veterans at the hospital. I recently labeled 72 boxes to take to the VA Hospital using the attached Honoree shipping label. And with each label I taped on the box, I felt that U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Camero was looking down on me and telling me “thank you for sharing my story”. It was my honor to salute this Fallen Hero.
