Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Historical Organizations, Public & Societal Benefit

Mission: The mission of this organization is to perpetually recognize the sacrifice of America’s military fallen heroes and their families. The organization pays tribute to all military lives lost, not only while serving on active duty but also as a result of serving. Military deaths in all wars or conflicts and all branches of service from our nation’s inception are recognized. The primary vehicle for perpetual recognition is a specific and dedicated symbol of remembrance created by this organization: the Honor and Remember Flag, which is intended to fly continuously as a tangible and visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms. In keeping with our mission and primary goals, we continue to significantly impact this nation with the message of perpetually recognizing our military fallen heroes and their families. Our objectives can be summarized in four words, establish, educate, present and comfort. (CFC #92995)

Results: The establishment of the Honor and Remember Flag as a national, state and local symbol of remembrance. Initiation of US bill in Congress and state by state adoption of the Flag in each jurisdiction. Individual supporters across the United States. Twenty-six legislated state adoptions through 2021. Petition responses, visits to our website, gold star families relationship building. Growing partnerships with national organizations and companies. Speaking and sharing opportunities in front of thousands of individuals at sporting events, festivals, ceremonies and related events throughout the year. Present one personalized Honor and Remember Flag to every family that has lost a loved one in military service to America, dating back to the American Revolution, eventually honoring every individual who has fallen in United States history. Flags continue to be presented on the average of one per day. Hosted hundreds of individual families at yearly banquets, organized runs and professional sporting events such as NASCAR, NFL, MLB, concerts, banquets and more. Only a small portion of our extensive activity is mentioned here.

Target demographics: Give tribute to our Military Fallen Heroes and Their Families

Direct beneficiaries per year: reach and recognize hundreds of Gold Star Families

Geographic areas served: National

Programs: Establishing the Honor and Remember Flag as a permanent symbol of remembrance across the nation including petitioning states and municipalities to propose and accept the HR Flag as the official national flag for acknowledging fallen service members and their families. Educating the nation about the importance of showing appreciation for our nation’s military fallen and to build a consensus among service organizations, civic groups, school districts, businesses and individuals regarding the need for a specific and distinct symbol that represents this purpose. Presenting personalized Honor and Remember Flags to every family that has lost a loved one in military service to America, eventually honoring every individual who has fallen in U.S. history. Our mission continues beyond the personalized flag through continuous partnership and relationship building between national organizations and the Gold Star Community, fostering an atmosphere of healthy communication, healing and comfort.

I am an author. During research for my first book, I came across information for Honor and Remember. Since I am also a military/veteran's advocate (as well as a Vet, myself) I thought about this organization's mission on a very deep level. I was selected to be a guest speaker at a little school's Veteran's Day assembly on the Arkansas Delta. I endeavored to challenge this school in a :Collecting Coins" campaign to sponsor a flag for a Gold Star family. The community responded tremendously and within the space of a year, this school collected funds for two flags; one of which is on display at the school in a case in the main hallway. The community helped this school present it's first flag to a local family who had recently lost their son to the war in Afghanistan. Since that first flag, the school has presented Honor and Remember flags to two more families and anticipates this action to be an annual event. They have a wonderful Veteran's Day ceremony every year which is highly attended by everybody in the community. This little town on the Delta shows it cares about its veterans and I am proud to have been the one to introduce Honor and Remember to the school. Everybody helped make the flag donations happen, and they can be proud to feel a part of something so big.

My first experience with the organization was at the America's Run for the Fallen in 2018 on the side of the road in the little town of Lewis, Iowa, as they read my son's name out in a dignified ceremony to honor him and his buddies that died on May 1, 2009 in Afghanistan.
I soon came to know more about the mission.
Honor and Remember is a wonderful organization that recognizes the families of fallen members of the military in such a magnificent display. The flag is a symbol of remembrance for us Gold Star families, seeing the flag displayed gives us hope that our loved one has not and will not be forgotten.
The sponsorship of the state Run for the Fallen events is another example of continuing to ensure that our loved ones are remembered every year by calling out their names as they run across the states.

I 100% support the Honor and Remember organization's mission. I originally met Mr. George Lutz back in 2009 during Rolling Thunder's Pentagon meet-up of gold star VIP families. He had personalized HR flag attached to his motorcycle and it was the most beautiful hero tribute I'd ever seen. Ironically, we both realized that his son and my brother, SSG LeRoy Alexander died the same year and were assigned with the Special Operations in Ft Bragg, NC. Mr. Lutz didn't know that I had ties within the entertainment industry after my cheerleader role in the film of "The Replacements." So I promised him I would educate others whether on the red carpet, sporting event, parade, my college at the US Coast Guard Academy (Go Bears!), etc. My favorite annual events include the Holiday Dinner and the State-wide Run for the Fallen tributes. I will always cheer on Honor and Remember until every state and US territory adopts this national symbol of remembrance. Please consider donating today. Thank you and God Bless America :)

Honor and Remember through it's mission provides compassion and comfort to families who have sacrificed their greatest treasure. Their moms, dads, sons, daughters, aunts and uncles. Without these heroes our country would not be here. It is up to all of us to say Thank You, and Honor and Remember does that.

I began working with Honor and Remember in 2017 as part of the planning group for America's Run For The Fallen, a coast-to-coast run memorializing thousands of fallen men and women of the military. I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, and sadly, I recognized some of the names from my time served. I had a primary purpose though as to why I became invested in the organization. My precious cousin, SPC Eric Scott Bivins had just died a few short months earlier and what better way to honor his memory than to be a part of this group.

Upon joining the team, I have had the extreme honor and privilege of meeting and becoming friends with some of the most amazing people, and even more so, loving these Gold Star families, these families that we call out the names of their loved ones, the families that have the assurance that their soldier, son, daughter, mother, father, whatever the case may be, they are NEVER forgotten and will ALWAYS be remembered.

I do want to add that when we arrive at a Hero Marker, and there is a Gold Star family standing there, waiting for the group to arrive, and more importantly, waiting to hear their loved one's name called out, my heart is pulled in every direction and I feel pain for them. I want to take away their pain that they endure each and every day of their lives. I hug them tight, and we share a comraderie of hearts.

Honor and Remember presents Gold Star families with the Honor and Remember flag in honor of their loved one, personalized just for them. They deserve so much more, but this shows that someone cares, someone remembers, that someone will never forget.

Not only does Honor and Remember, Inc. bring much deserved recognition to our fallen military, but also to our fallen first responders through Honor and Sacrifice. This does my heart so good, they put their lives on the line as well.

I am thankful and blessed God placed me with Honor and Remember. As a veteran with PTSD, this is my purpose, my go-to, my family.

I've been involved with this non-profit unofficially since 2009 and Officially since 2013 as a Chapter Director.
The impact made when presenting personalized Honor and Remember and Honor and Sacrifice flags to our Gold Star/LODD families, has been overwhelming as you can see it in their eyes and emotions displayed by paying tribute to their son or daughter by saying their name.
It has been a life changing experience for me to be involved with this organization and paying tribute to those heroes that give us our Freedoms that we enjoy.

I have been with the charity since it started in 2008
I remember when I came back from Afghanistan in February 2008 and in April 2008 I was at a legion meeting where I heard a story from a gentleman who at the time all he had was a cardboard screen print of the Honor and Remember flag. After he explained what he wanted to do I walked up to him and told him that I just left Afghanistan and the last thing we saw was a flag draped coffin as we rendered honors as the motorcade passed and there it began.

I remember the very first time I met George Lutz He had done a presentation at the American Legion I was a part of in Norfolk Virginia He came in and presented what at the time was a piece of cardboard with a flag painted on it. Then he broke down the meaning of the flag. After the meeting I walked up to him and told him I just left Afghanistan at the end of February and the last thing I saw was a flag draped coffin
How can I help and since then I have been volunteering in some capacity for this non profit since day 1

Honor and Remember is a wonderful nonprofit. I was very impressed at how they recognized and honored ours and other families that were at the presentation of the flags. They talked to all of the families and gave representation to our Gold Star Families and the ones that we have lost. We must never forget anyone that has given their life to keep us safe. After some time people tend to forget who paid the ultimate price for us. By continuing to represent these family members we will never forget them. As a Gold Star Family we remember everyday, but most people remember only on Memorial Day. This organization wants to make sure that we remember everyday. We are so great full for Honor and Remember and what they are doing for Gold Star Families.

I can’t say enough about George Lutz and the mission he has developed with Honor and Remember. George took the tragic loss of his Son and turned it into a statement of comfort for Gold Star Families throughout the country. Please take the time to learn more and help spread the word. Gold Star Families need to know their loved ones have not died in vain. Those of us who appreciate the freedom and liberty we have owe it to those who’ve sacrificed for us and the Gold Star Families they left behind...

My brother was killed by an IED in Afghanistan in 2008. Honor and Remember has never forgotten. I can’t tell you how overwhelmingly wonderful it was when my parents (In their 80s) and I greeted the running team at Jim’s mile marker near Williamsburg one year. Or how cathartic it was to share a meal at the Founders Inn with another Gold Star Family. Or how proud I was to help place a field of valor at a local high school and witness Honor and Remember give a high-schooler the flag with her Dad’s name on it. This is a wonderfully supportive organization to Gold Star Families! Semper Fi! -kyle

Was made aware of Honor and Remember almost 3 years ago while they were sponsor a Run Across America Honoring fallen service members. Just recently completed a Alabama Run Honoring fallen Alabama Service members. After serving 26 years in the Air Force its great knowing that someone is not letting those that have passed that they service meant something.

This organization has shown remarkable support to our family and other Gold Star Families, after the loss of military family members. They help others understand the pain and sacrifice families all over the United States make when someone they love dies while serving in the Armed Forces to keep all of us safe. The special flag they present to the families is designed to symbolize this sacrifice. God bless those who consistently reach out to support the families of the fallen.

The Honor and Remembrance Program that was held in Hamilton, Ohio on August 8th & 9th, 2014 was extremely well prepared and presented. All of the comments that I heard while listening to the programs were positive and supportive. The venue was designed to be appealing to just about everyone.
Tom Mitchell should be commended for his work on all of the Honor and Remember presentations and programs that he is responsible for.

Honor and Remember is an amazing organization that brings comfort to the Gold Star and Combat Veteran communities by assurring them that our country's Fallen Heroes will never be forgotten. They educate our public on the cost of our freedom and provide a tangible, perpetual way for America to say "Thank You! We will not forget your sacrifice" via the Honor and Remember Flag. This should be on every flag pole in America underpinning Old Glory as it is because of those sacrifices and those willing to fight for our Country that we have our freedom.

What a great organization! Dedicated to honoring our brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country. Founder George Lutz, who lost his son while serving our country, came and spoke at the Chris Moon Memorial unveiling ceremony in Tucson, Az. in 2017 and also has helped us present three Gold Star families with personalized Honor and Remember flags. The Run for the Fallen event is incredible and is just another way Honor and Remember fulfills the mission of making sure every military hero is honored and their sacrifice never forgotten!

To say Run For the Fallen and their mission is AMAZING would be an understatement. The pain, sweat and tears will be forever etched in my mind. In 2018, I ran with some super incredible people with Run For The Fallen. As a group we covered 47 miles and I ran 17 of them over a 3 day period. We stopped at every mile to recognize a fallen hero.

Mile 38, my late husbands mile was oh so special to me. The entire group ran this mile with me! As they called Lt Bantee Hall II, I was moved to tears! 6,150 days later, Run For The Fallen (Honor and Remember) made sure Bantee was not forgotten. Almost 17 years later........the emotions took over, as if he left this earth yesterday.
I can’t thank George Lutz enough for his vision for this organization! The compassion he and the runners have shown has been incredible. The instant connections and bonds have been unreal!

Honor and Remember has touched thousands of Gold Star Families with the resonating message that Fallen Military or Fallen First Responders will always be honored, remembered and their sacrifice has not gone unnoticed. Comforting the families and continuing to tell their stories, the love, hugs and the bonds shared last forever.

Our family has been blessed to receive the personalized H&R flag for our two Fallen Heroes - Ssg Travis J Selinsky and Ssg Brandon J Selinsky. It is the compassionate heart & care of the organization and it's people that imprints a permanent place in our hearts.

We will be forever thankful for George Lutz answering the call to make the H&R flag a National symbol of remembrance and sacrifice.

Saying "Thank you" doesn't seem like enough to say but our's is filled with love, gratitude and appreciation.

All I can speak to is why I became familiar with the cause. In 2007, my son in law was KIA in Iraq. He was an EOD with the Marine Corps. As we struggled to process his death one thing I found was Honor and Remember. I ordered my first flag in 2010. I am on my 3rd one. I display it during the summer as other times during the year it is very windy here and damage happens easily. The flag not only honors my son in law but an uncle who was killed in Korea in 1951.

I was able to spend just one day with the Honor and Remember/ Run For The Fallen group that had already run more than 5,000 miles over 4 months honoring America’s fallen heroes....I was both humbled and honored to join these great people who continue to travel around the country honoring our finest Americans. Some of the runners put their families and jobs on pause for a few days at a time, others have fully devoted their lives to pay tribute at every opportunity. While not everyone can put in this kind of physical work, we should all get behind them and give them support along their journey.

Where do I begin? That I had the opportunity to run with gold star families or run with an incredible, brave, hardworking and dedicated super amazing people. I’m still looking for words to describe this amazing historical run for our fallen heroes. Those heroes are my brothers and sisters, I call them my family. It was such a great honor to run as a volunteer. At some point I felt like doing more. The consistency, motivation, drive, composure, eagerness , braveness and commitment I saw from the organizations made my jaw drop. These people went above and beyond to make this happen. And it went as far as being the best thing to ever bring honor to our fallen heroes. I still can’t find the right words to describe my experience. I will always be a part of this mission and will always give them my ultimate support. God bless America and also bless the families of our fallen heroes.

I hopped on board about 4 to 6 weeks before the core team of Run for the Fallen hit Georgia. I was hesitant at first and was trying to find someone to be the captain for our beautiful state. No one stepped up so I did, with the saying "I'll try". The VFW, with the state Commander Charles Tony Dobbins , Alisha Gosdin and SMSgt Carrie Schmitzer were the core group. Candice King, a Gold Star mother, Joined us later and together we worked hard to ensure the core group of Run for the Fallen was taken care of to the best of our abilities.
As an Army brat, Marine wife and Gold Star Marine mom, I wanted to help spread the word about this Run, honoring our Fallen Warriors. I have stood at the graveside with the PGR, I have attended services for our Fallen and consoled my new family, one which none of us asked to be in.
This Run is important in raising awareness of those of us left behind while our loved one has crossed over. We must go on, we must remember, we must never forget the sacrifices our Fallen Warriors have made to ensure our safety and that of future generations. I thought my grieving was over, or at least subdued, but this event has shown me there are so many families out there suffering silently, just as I have been doing over 13 years now. I am not alone! Raising awareness, spreading the word that our loved ones are not forgotten. Talking with the crew and being a part of this has helped me become even more aware of the pain and suffering of my "family" but also shown me there are people who wish to honor the lives of our loved ones. I am honored to be a part of this Historical event and I know there are people out there, just like me, who anxiously await to see their loved one honored and remembered.
Say their names, never forget and our loved ones will live on.

I just spent the better part of a week side-by-side with the folks from Honor and Remember during America's Run for the Fallen, and I can tell you that these are the finest people on earth - collectively and individually. These folks have hearts of gold, and it shows day-in and day-out. After seeing the first ceremony at the first marker in South Carolina, I knew it was important that I be at every marker while they were in this state. So much so that I followed them into North Carolina and didn't want to say goodbye. Honor and Remember is an organization that is true to their word - they say what they do, and they do what they say. In just 7 short days, these folks have become like family to me, and it's because they put they're heart into everything they do for Gold Star Families and the loved ones who they honor.

I've been involved with Honor and Remember for about 3 years. This organization connects Families of Fallen Heroes and presents Personalized Honor and Remember flags to the families of fallen Sevice Members. The more events I go to and participate in; the more I see families meeting and hugging and knowing they are not alone. Also the community gathers; government, civic organizations, Patriot Guard Riders...the list goes on. Honor and Remember connects hearts and hands; I'm honored to be part of this amazing organization.

My son in law was killed in action december 23 2006. My daughter and he were stationed at Ft Drum with deployments to Iraq, we were notified of is death that Christmas as my daughter and granddaughter were in flight to join us for Christmas that night. As an honor this year they added his name to the Run for the Fallen in east Mesa, included us like we were family the first time we experienced some closure in ten long years. They also made a beautiful embroidered flag which my daughter took home in february this year while visiting, you have shown so much love and support. God Bless and thank you

This organization brings honor to my son SPC Thomas Avery Doyle. He was lost to PTS and suicide. A mother's worst fear is that her child will be forgotten. I am blessed now knowing that this won't happen.

Amazing organization that honors families of our fallen Heroes. I appreciate the dedication and sensitivity during the most heartbreaking time of our life. I support the ongoing mission to establish the Honor and Remember Flag as our national symbol, a tangible and visible reminder to all Americans of the lives lost in defense of our national freedoms.

Honor and Remember has done much for all the families of our fallen heroes. It means so much to our family that our Sammy (Major Samuel Mark Griffith, USMCR, KIA 14 Dec 2011, Afghanistan) was one of many honored by this organization. We can't thank you enough.

Honor and Remember is an outstanding organization. They do so much to bring healing and peace to the families of fallen heroes to be sure that they are never forgotten nor are the families. They educate the public on what a Gold Star is and make sure the families can get together at events they do as they are the only ones who truly know their pain. George Lutz who is the founder is a gold star dad and works tirelessly to make good things happen for the families. It is an honor and privilege to work with George in a volunteer capacity and when you meet the families you really know and understand the importance of what he does. I look forward to working with Honor and Remember for a very long time.

I joined Honor and Remember 6 years ago, as a Veteran I feel I am giving back in some way to the family's that have lost a family member in combat. It is a great organization to be part of and it is truly the only remembrance you see out there that carries on the remembrance of fallen soldiers.
