American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, Washington, D.C.
President Obama was among the people who gathered in October 2014 for the opening of the first-ever memorial in honor of disabled veterans, those who suffer from physical injuries or emotional ones like PTSD. The monument, set on a 2.4-acre site near the Capitol, features a reflecting pool with a star-shaped fountain, glass and granite walls, and a grove of trees. It's an unusual and much-needed memorial, as it honors living heroes. Read More

Partnership with American Humane Association (AHA)

Military TimesLois Pope, along with Leaders in Furthering Education (LIFE), is launching a program to protect the voiceless and the vulnerable in our society - abused and neglected children and animals. The model for this program will be created right here in our own backyard – a model to be replicated not just here in the U.S. but globally as well. In order to do this, Lois Pope and LIFE have formed a partnership with American Humane Association (AHA). For more than 135 years the AHA's work on behalf of children and animals has truly made the world a better place. Mrs. Pope and LIFE look forward to assisting their efforts that will continue to save lives and give a voice to those who all too often have none.

American Veterans Disabled for LIFE Memorial

Military TimesJust a reminder that we have military persons in very dangerous places, doing dangerous things...Remember to pray for them. The story is about Channing Moss, who was impaled by a live RPG during a Taliban ambush while on patrol. Army protocol says that medivac choppers are never to carry anyone with a live round in him. Even though they feared it could explode, the flight crew said damn the protocol and flew him to the nearest aid station. Again, protocol said that in such a case the patient is to be put in a sandbagged area away from the surgical unit, given a shot of morphine and left to wait (and die) until others are treated. Again, the medical team ignored the protocol. Here's a short video put together by the Military Times, which includes actual footage of the surgery where Dr. John Oh, a Korean immigrant who became a naturalized citizen and went to West Point, removed the live round with the help of volunteers and a member of the EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) team. Moss has undergone six operations but is doing well at home in Gainesville , GA. I think you'll find the video absolutely remarkable.

LIFE Summer Camp Program

LIFE Summer Camp ProgramLIFE proceeds go towards the LIFE Summer Camp Program. Millions of American school-aged children are living in poverty. Many of these underprivileged children will spend their summer without adult supervision - a situation that can have dire consequences if they become involved with drugs or crime. Most often this situation arises because parents or guardians simply cannot afford a summer day camp program. We urge each and every person who is able, to do everything in their power to help those less fortunate than themselves.
