TULSA, Ok., Sept. 28 /Christian Newswire
/ --Tulsa, Oklahoma has been selected to host a national event where the governors of all 50 states have been invited to join individuals and businesses to honor the families of America's soldiers who died while serving and defending our country's freedoms, according to Michael Letney, founder of Sacrifice for Freedom, who is inviting all patriotic individuals and businesses in Tulsa to become involved by sponsoring and attending the gathering.
New York Times best selling author Stephen Mansfield (The Faith of George W. Bush and The Faith of the American Soldier) will keynote the event which will be held Saturday, November 10 at 6:30 pm at the Tulsa Renaissance Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Mansfield researched his book about the American soldiers' faith on the modern battlefield by embedding with U.S. troops in Iraq at the beginning of 2005. His experience at the frontlines and his research on faith among soldiers forms the core of this important book, which is now used in military academies around the world.
"This is an opportunity for Tulsa to show not only its incredible hosting skills and Patriotism, but also that it is a national leader in the popular nationwide grass roots movement to honor the American soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice and their families," Letney says. "Sacrifice For Freedom is honored to bring this event to Tulsa to recognize the families of our brave men and women who lost their lives fighting and defending this nation." Proceeds from the evening will assist the children of fallen soldiers and their families in need. Letney is encouraging local businesses to get behind this vision with sponsorships and other forms of support.
Sacrifice For Freedom, a 501 c (3) non-profit Corporation, has developed a wonderful and inspiring memorial that brings healing to these deserving families and an understanding to the nation. When someone makes a donation to this project, a memorial is sent to the family of a fallen soldier, developing a heart-felt connection between the family and the citizens of America. Proceeds also help support scholarship funds and provide immediate tragedy assistance for the families and children of our brave soldiers. Already, there are representatives from the Pentagon who are assisting Sacrifice For Freedom with this healing program and Senator James Inhofe is working to promote the exchange of these powerful memorials, according to Letney.
Each governor will be provided with Sacrifice for Freedom memorials corresponding to the number of fallen soldiers in their respective states that the governors can present to each soldier's family "From A Grateful Nation."
"Recognition from the governors will not only honor the families and their loved one's sacrifice, but also help the public grasp the need, whether they support the war or not, to honor the sacrifice of our dedicated military men and women," said Letney.

The goal of Sacrifice for Freedom is to find sponsors from across the nation that will provide the necessary funds to memorialize fallen American soldiers and help their families. Sacrifice for Freedom understands that Americans, regardless of whether or not they agree with war, have a responsibility to embrace our American Soldiers, who are too often faced with financial and physical hardships as they freely choose to fight for our freedoms and the freedoms of all people. Sacrifice for Freedom memorials are exquisite tributes to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who have dedicated and sacrificed their lives for freedom.
