Honoring military spouses for their strength, many sacrifices and commitment to our community.
Heroes at Home, founded by The Flagship Inc. in Norfolk, Virginia in 2005, is a very highly regarded, regional recognition program that honors military spouses from all ranks and all branches for their for their sacrifices, strength, volunteerism and support for the military community. For more than a decade, Heroes at Home has recognized our military spouses for their important contributions to our local communities and has empowered military spouses to further their mission in support of the military community and our country.
Over the years this program has expanded to Fort Lee, Virginia and Jacksonville, Florida. We are very pleased to announce that in 2017, Heroes at Home will become a statewide program in Virginia. In addition to Hampton Roads, we are expanding the Central Virginia region and adding a Northern Virginia event. The military and civilian communities will come together this April and May in each region to honor and recognize our military spouses for their unending strength, their extraordinary personal sacrifices and for the challenges they overcome every day. ALL OF THE NOMINEES will be honored at the Heroes at Home Military Spouse Appreciation and Awards luncheon in their region where we will formally announce the finalists and name the Heroes at Home Military Spouse of the Year for the respective regions. The finalists from the Hampton Roads, Central Virginia and Northern Virginia regions will then be invited to a luncheon reception with Governor and Mrs. McAuliffe at the Governor's Mansion in Richmond in mid May. These deserving honorees will be lauded for their important contributions in our local communities and their unwavering commitment to our country.
