DVNF Honor Wall

Many of us have some sort of connection to the military. Whether you have a family member or a friend who has served in the armed forces, we are often looking for a way to thank them. And sometimes, when a loved one passes on, we want their service to our country to be recognized.

Consider making a donation in honor or in memory of your hero by clicking here and making sure to click the check box under the heading: “Give an Honor or Memorial Gift”.

We would also like to honor, remember, and thank you and your loved ones for their donations, but more importantly, their service. Below are just a few of the many In Memory or In Honor donations we’ve received this year.

Please note:  The Honor Wall is in alphabetical order by last name of the person being remembered or honored. We update the wall every 2 business days —  visit again soon.
