Article: Veteran’s Day Event To Honor Fallen Soldiers Needs Volunteers

Yesterday Eric Calley and James Sperry were interviewed on Michigan’s WILX news program about our Reading of the Fallen. This was a great story that explained our Mission, and our need for volunteers to help read at their local events. Below is a small excerpt of the story, and to read the full story please click here.

A Michigan veteran planning a cross-country effort to read aloud the names of all U.S. soldiers killed in the line of duty is just a few days away from his deadline.

The ambitious project is set to take place this Sunday, on Veteran’s Day. At 210 locations in 41 different states, hundreds of people will join in the effort to read aloud the 1.2 million names of all the servicemen and women who died fighting for our country, going as far back as the Civil War.

Former Marine Eric Calley, the brother of Lt. Governor Brian Calley, says it’s a way for Americans to honor the fallen, as well as our veterans who are still here. Calley, along with fellow Marine veteran James Sperry, created a non-profit to help veterans in the U.S. deal with what happened overseas. They hope to serve as a resource for a new generation of veterans coming home from the war in Iraq.
