The Fight Continues sets out to honor all fallen U.S. Soldiers
at the “The Fight Continues” are starting a Veteran Service Project for
the first Veterans Day after the end of the Iraq war. For all young
Veterans who want to give something back, we at “The Fight Continues”
will read all names of our fallen veterans throughout all conflicts from
the birth of the United States of America. This being the first
Veterans Day since Operation Iraqi Freedom, will be your chance for the
younger generation of Veterans to not only participate, but see what
Veterans Day is all about. Also, it will be a chance for the Veterans of
the Global War on Terrorism to recognize all of the men and women who
protect American values as well as freedom.
Our idea is to have six hundred “Reading” locations across the United States. Each location has about approximately 1,750 names, estimating eight names per minute which will take an estimated two and half hours per location. This is huge task, which has never been done before, but our fallen brothers and sisters’ sacrifice can never be forgotten. We will read these names simultaneously throughout the Nation with a standardized starting time. This will be a historic event that helps honor today’s war veterans and all that came before us.
The Fight Continues was founded by OIF Veterans, James Sperry and Eric Calley. Our mission is to help educate the public on today’s sacrifices made by our military families, in order to make this generation of war veterans the next” Greatest Generation.”
What we need from the American Public is 600 locations across the United States and volunteers to help us complete this mission. We are also asking that if a Mother or Family member of a fallen Soldier attends your reading, please add their son/daughter’s name to the list of the soldiers we give you. So that we might honor all of our fallen soldiers properly.
