The Independence Fund and the state of North Carolina are committed to honoring the sacrifice, courage, and resiliency of this brave group of servicemen and women.
On April 24, 2021, the state of North Carolina passed House Bill 138/Senate Bill 132 designating every April 24th as Wounded Heroes Day.
The Independence Fund and NC General Assembly Members, led by Representative David Willis, acknowledges that when a service member returns home with life changing injuries, the entire family absorbs the sacrifice and adjusts life to care for the wounded Veteran. We are thrilled to mark the 2nd annual Wounded Heroes Day on April 24, 2022.
Wounded Heroes across North Carolina, on behalf of SGT Verardo and The Independence Fund, we are proud to honor you today.
