" Because Freedom Is Not Free!"

University of Missouri

The University of Missouri will offer a full, four-year scholarship to a deserving veteran, wounded warrior, or member of their immediate family who is responsible as the caregiver as a result of this Benefit.  This scholarship is being provided by the sponsors and volunteers supporting the Heart of America Patriot Benefit through the Heart of America Patriot Foundation.  The recipient of this scholarship will begin classes in the Fall 2016.  The MU Veterans Center and MU’s Office of Gift Planning and Endowment will solicit, evaluate, and select the recipient from applications submitted by students.

Heart of America Patriot Foundation

The Heart of America Patriot Foundation is dedicated to honoring those who have served our great country; those who are currently serving; those who are bearing the scars of battle; and to those very special men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to provide us the freedoms we all enjoy today. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. 100% of our efforts are voluntary. We have no paid staff or salaries allowing us to contribute the maximum raised to the charities we support.

Patriot Features

We are passionate about veterans. We are passionate about Their stories. We are passionate about making sure those stories won't be lost to history. 

In short - we are dedicated to serving those who served. We work to provide the veteran, their family, and the Nation a visual legacy of the sacrifices that made America strong, and ensured our freedom. 

This...is Patriot Features.

The University of Kansas is proud to offer a unique KU Wounded Warrior Scholarship for military veterans, primary caregivers, or surviving spouses/children studying at KU. Starting the Fall semester of 2014, KU will offer three academic scholarships up to $10,000 each, which are renewable for up to four years. The goal of the KU Wounded Warrior Scholarship is to supplement recipients with the funds required to attend KU and to help them stay focused on their collect experience.

Welcome Heroes – “Welcome to your Memorial."

It represents history that you made,

It represents the freedom we enjoy,

And the price you and the fallen paid.

You have no battles to win today,

No flags you need to raise,

But do believe that you are our heroes

And accept your country's praise.

We appreciate your sacrifices,

In the many battles that you won.

Your country speaks through this memorial-

It is saying, "Well Done, young man, Well Done"
