Established in 2010 by Boston firefighters, local Veterans, Gold Star Families, Police Officers and other patriotic citizens, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes was organized in order to memorialize our fallen by creating a permanent public tribute and to provide advocacy services for local Veterans and families of the fallen serving in the Global War on Terrorism since 2001. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity that holds a series of events throughout the year to honor and aid those who have served, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Headquartered in Boston, MA, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is comprised of a group of Veterans and Gold Star family members who have experienced the hardships of war firsthand and understand that its impact does not end upon a service member’s return home.
