Making it Matter in Canton, OH: An Amazing First Year


There were Uniformed American Heroes from the Military, Police, Firefighters and First Responders. There were proud Veterans from as far back as WWII, and plenty still on active duty from every branch. We celebrated birthdays of all our Armed Forces. Were honored to receive cherished mementos and artifacts, like our POW chair donated by Rolling Thunder Chapter 2. And then there was “Ruger,” sworn in with yips and barks.

Happy 242nd Birthday to the U.S. Army


It was the Spring of 1775 and tensions in the colonies had reached a breaking point. Although Patriot leaders had secretly formed a revolutionary government, they did not yet have unified forces prepared to fight. An amateur militia, cobbled together from sharpshooters throughout New England, was still being organized. And then British troops descended upon Lexington and Concord.

Happy Flag Day, America: A helpful guide

American Flag Between Fire trucks

Our American Flag was first adopted on June 14, 1777. So now, 240 years later, we celebrate on this date — honoring Old Glory and all those who courageously fought for it. You’ll find one waving at every MISSION BBQ, of course. Yet we’re most proud to see them on front porches in Our Communities … at Military Bases, Firehouses, Police Stations, and Emergency Responder buildings … in our schools and local government buildings … wherever Americans show national pride.

Vadm Joseph Mulloy

“You’re part of something bigger than yourself,” Joseph Mulloy says about service. “When you see that flag, you realize it really is important to you.”  

Just as it has been for his family since 1908. That’s when his grandfather, Captain Henry F. Mulloy U.S.N., enlisted at 18 before serving on a destroyer in the North Atlantic during WWI. Followed by his father, Charles Sullivan Mulloy...

Remembering Those Who Gave All

Memorial Day

It is our most solemn American holiday, remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our nation. Originating after the Civil War, Memorial Day was first known as “Decoration Day” — designated for decorating soldier’s graves from our country’s bloodiest chapter, with over 600,000 killed in action. During WWI, we began commemorating U.S. military who died in ALL wars. In 1971, it became an official federal holiday.
