Homes For Our Troops honors National Day of Service and Remembrance

Categories: Blog, Home

September 11 is a federally recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance created to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks and rekindle the spirit of unity and patriotism that brought Americans together in the aftermath of tragedy.

Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) believes in keeping this patriotic spirit alive. Here are some ways you can observe this day of service by supporting our nation’s severely injured post-9/11 Veterans and their families.

Attend a Build Event: You can support the building of a specially adapted custom HFOT home by attending a build event and welcoming a Veteran to the community. We have over 67 active projects nationwide. Find one near you.
