Love Lives On - TAPS

Posted by Joseph Shamess on

We've written before about the incredible work Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) does. Our latest experience with founder Bonnie Carroll and the crew was no exception. We flew to Nashville where we were privileged to participate in a flag build event with the families and artists that inspired the creation of the album "Love Lives On". Hearing these stories of love and heroism was deeply emotional for us. The TAPS organization and the TAPS families they support inspire us every day. Getting a chance to build wooden American flag memorials with each of them was an honor we will never forget. If you'd like to learn more about TAPS or donate to their worthy efforts click here.
