  • Foundation gifts Army Medal of Honor Recipients

    The Heart Of A Marine Foundation was given Army Commemorative watches. Wonderful, beautiful timepieces. We knew we had to be very mindful when presenting these to individuals. The answer was clear: Army Medal of Honor Recipients. 

    We contacted the Medal of Honor Society in South Carolina. As privacy is an issue, we sent 60+ watches to the Director of Operations at the Medal of Honor Society. She in turn, send them to each living Army Medal of Honor Recipient. 

    We never expected anything in return. What we did receive were wonderful hand written notes, and expressions of gratitude from many recipients. 

    Pictured here is our beloved Al Lynch when he received his watch!





  • Winter coats and outerwear to veterans!

    The Chicago winter is upon us, and The Heart Of A Marine Foundation is proud to be able to donate winter coats and warm fleece outerwear to veterans! 

    On Thursday, November 2 we donated Navy logoed coats, hoodies, and shirts to the Midwest Veterans Closet. The Midwest Veterans Closet is located on Green Bay Road in North Chicago, just minutes from Great Lakes Naval Station. We are excited to get these wonderful, warm, Navy items to those who really appreciate them!

    We also made a visit to the Eddie Beard Transitional Home for Veterans with donations of winter coats, fleece hoodies, athletic socks, and personal care items. 

    To all of our veterans, stay warm!
