2021 "Virtual Parade for Heroes" for Veterans Day
We need to encourage and support our veterans and current servicemen and women more than ever. Many heroes wrestling with post-traumatic stress do not like being in crowds. Many heroes also suffer from injury-related and/or age-related mobility issues. Therefore, we are hosting another Virtual Parade for Heroes this Veterans Day so that every hero can be honored. We are planning another virtual parade to honor our heroes this Veterans Day.
To be included in our next Virtual Parade of Heroes, please e-mail us the hero’s name, picture, and service information by November 11 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The virtual parade will then be published near Veterans Day in an online musical video virtual parade and you will be notified of its publication by e-mail.
We appreciate being able honor heroes. It means so much to us to have this opportunity to give credit where credit is due!
God bless you,Carrie and Stacie

In 2008, they started an organization “Unite the USA” as a platform to educate and inspire Americans to come together and show appreciation for their country and those who serve it.
The sisters spoke to Fox News about how Memorial Day is an opportunity for Americans to refocus on honoring heroes who may have been forgotten amid the health crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Ever since we started Unite the USA, we have had an emphasis on teaching kids and families to get on out there, learn things about our country, talk to our veterans, thank them, do things to thank them,” Carrie Stoelting told Fox News. In April, Carrie and Stacie started an online initiative called "Mission Impossible: Operation Honor Heroes 2020." They encourage anyone with a loved one who has served, or is serving, in the military to send them a picture to post on their website in an “online parade of pictures,” in lieu of real parades this year.
“We want to offer, through our mission, ways to honor the fallen this Memorial Day in particular. We also want to remember our veterans and our military families and those currently serving. And so by doing so, you can send pictures of your loved ones who have served past and present. We're going to have an online parade to honor our servicemen and women,” said Carrie. The sisters believe that, over time, many have forgotten what a blessing it is to live in the United States. They hope the extreme government intervention that is taking place to fight the spread of COVID-19, which many would argue is a violation of citizens’ rights, will serve as a reminder of what is most important: freedom.
“Memorial Day weekend is a big wake up call for us as a country to remember that our fallen heroes who did just that, they laid down their lives for us, for our freedoms. And, you know, we've all had things totally changed and we suddenly understand the value of freedom. This is a time to thank veterans for the freedoms that we were accidentally taking for granted before the COVID-19 response,” said Stacie Stoelting.
