Because of the Brave

Mission Statement

Because of the Brave works to ensure we honor all those who have served and perpetuate

their legacy so it can be passed down in order to preserve our way of life, our freedom.

Recent Events

On July 28, 2021, we hosted a small private event with our friend, Cheshire native, and Medal of Honor Recipient 

Colonel Harvey C. "Barney Barnum Jr. USMC (ret.). 

This evening was extra special as we hit all three of the pillars we exist for

Honoring our Veterans - Educating our Youth - Supporting First Responders

Members of the Cheshire Police Department and Police Explorers received some knowledge and words of wisdom from Col. Barnum as he is a longtime supporter of educating our youth and supporting the Police.

Local Vietnam Veterans came out to enjoy the company of Col. Barnum, as shown by their smiles!

Every gathering needs food and Mission BBQ delivered in a big way!

“I will always honor and remember Captain Andrew Pedersen-Keel and his selfless acts of bravery by continuing to visit Section 60 grave marker 10108 and supporting APK Charities to perpetuate his legacy.”

Because of the Brave

Here at Because of the Brave, I am driven by a single goal; to honor our current and former service members. I strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of my pursuits.

“Set your goals high, always reach out to get those goals, never say they are too hard, never say I can't. If you try something and it doesn't work, don't give up, back up, think of something else, and take the word failure out of your vocabulary.”

Col. Harvey C. Barnum Jr. USMC (ret.)
