It is our hope that these brave heroes will represent to Americans the thousands of lives that have given the ultimate sacrifice and remind us all of the families they have left behind.
BeBe Winans recently returned from a seven day tour of several bases throughout Kuwait, performing for the servicemen and women stationed there, and participating in base activities, such as Command visits, walking tours, and autograph and photos sessions. This is the second Middle East trip for Winans, who has always been an avid supporter of our troops. “We can never give enough thanks to those who place their lives on the line, making the ultimate sacrifice, nor to the families they leave behind forever grieving”, says BeBe. “The meaning and purpose of Honor and Remember, fits perfectly into this tribute which directly affects every American.”
“BeBe has written a tremendous song that speaks directly to our mission of public appreciation of sacrifice.

About Honor and Remember, Inc.
After the death of his eldest son, Tony, in Iraq, Gold Star father George Lutz recognized the need to educate the nation about the precious cost of freedom. His mission became raising awareness about the sacrifice made by military men and women who died for their country through the creation and establishment of a distinct and tangible symbol. The Honor and Remember Flag was unveiled nationally on Memorial Day 2008 to perpetually recognize the sacrifice of our fallen military heroes and their families. The flag is now being endorsed by veteran and service organizations and adopted by cities and states. And it is being flown by patriotic Americans across our nation and is fast becoming a nationally accepted symbol of remembrance. One of our major goals is the presentation of personalized Honor and Remember Flags to individual families of every military fallen hero. Hundreds of Honor and Remember Flags have already been presented, across the United States, to the families who have lost loved ones in military conflicts, over many generations. Additionally, more than 20 states have either adopted the flag or endorsed its use. Visit www.HonorandRemember.org for more information.
