October 12th & 13th 2018
This year America’s most distinguished Veteran’s advocacies will unite for a joint effort honoring our country’s heroes. Held on October 12th and 13th at various locations across the DFW Metroplex, Tribute to Valor is an unparalleled gathering of our nation’s Living Legends.
Today there are over twenty million living Veterans. Their needs are just as diverse as their stories.
Tribute to Valor Weekend is an opportunity to address the necessities of our heroes by bringing together some of America’s leading Veteran’s advocacy groups. Together we’ll provide a stable support system for our active and retired service members, their families, and those who will be serving in the future.
