On 9-9-16, through BOOKS FOR BRAVERY our fire/police/military teams delivered hundreds of THE LITTLE WHITE TRUCK WITH THE BIG MISSION books to 5th grade students in Milwaukee. Our heroes were in the schools, talking about what took place on 9/11/01 when these students were not yet born–both the tragedy, and about what took place after–the hope and unity. Bringing that positive message forward to our community, our service members talked about freedom, where it comes from, who protects it, and that each student has the ability to make a positive difference in their community in thanks to those who serve.
On 9-11-16, we remembered 600+ service members (firefighters, law enforcement, military) who made the ultimate sacrifice, at our STANDING FOR THE FALLEN 9-11-16 Memorial Tribute, hosted by the Milwaukee Fire Department and On Purpose Journey Inc.
