16 Sep Remember Heroes Will Help You Commemorate Loved Ones
Remember Heroes allows you to honor and commemorate American heroes in three ways: by putting flowers on their grave, by seeing their memorial decorated with those flowers, and by being able to share photos and memories with family and friends.
Mike Merit, co-founder and President, served three tours of duty as a U.S. Marine in both the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. When Mike returned from service, he received disability benefits from the federal government. The limited amount of support was barely enough to get by, let alone fly halfway across the country to pay his respects to his fallen friends. On Memorial Day of 2012, Mike envisioned a virtual cemetery experience where you could have flowers placed, see your loved one’s headstone, and have a panoramic view of the entire cemetery as if you were there. From that, Remember Heroes was born.
