In Honor of the Brave Women of Sandy Hook Elementary

Like so many of us, Karen Martino was deeply saddened by the recent, senseless killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. She shares that she felt so at a loss as to “how can I help” … and then a lightbulb went off!!!


She shares this:


I want to send Serve The Warrior a donation in the names of the adults lost –

since they too, like our vets, served in the line of duty!


Therefore, I would like to donate to the Serve The Warrior cause, to use in

whatever way it’s needed, $1,000 in honor of each of the brave women who died –

Dear Karen,


Your compassion, love, and action have brought tears to our eyes and our hearts are so full. Thank you for honoring these brave women. You are absolutely right…they served in the line of duty.  We are humbly grateful for your commitment and gift to lessen trauma in this world. These individuals have not died in vain. They truly have become our world teachers, teaching us that we can not proceed like we have. That change must be ushered in. That we must care for our community.

Thank you for this beautiful, loving gift of remembrance and healing.





Serve the Warrior honors the lives of these women:
