Honoring Those Who Made It Home
The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veterans Affairs responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online, or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Support for deaf and hard of hearing individuals is available.
The Alive Tree
The Alive tree is a 12-foot tall outdoor tree sculpture made out of rebar patterned after the tree sculptures at the Prairie Grove National Museum. The sculpture will be made by the Northwest Technical Institute Students from material supplied by Home Depot and a generous donation from the Bank of Fayetteville to have the sculpture tree permanently installed. The tree will feature leaves with the names of the veterans who our donors want to say they are glad they alive.
This tree will have a special place of honor in front of the Soldier ON office for everyone to see the names of those whose continued life is celebrated and cherished.
The Leaves of Celebration
The leaves of this tree are leaf-shaped ornaments designed by Avery Nelson of Forge Custom Metal Designs with engraving by John Lifer of Ozark Laser Engraving and will carry the name of the veteran who was able to come home and who is making a difference in our lives today. When you pledge a recurring donation of $10 per month, an engraved leaf will be placed on the tree in honor of the veteran of your choice.
Our goal is for 100 reoccurring monthly Alive Day Donations. This money will be used to help pay for Soldier ON's Veteran Handler Program.
