Massachusetts Fallen Heroes was established in 2010 by Boston firefighters, local Veterans, Gold Star Families, Police Officers, and other patriotic citizens. The organization is made up of Combat Veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and are committed to memorializing their fellow service members who did not return home to their families. Massachusetts Fallen Heroes began with the goal of raising funds to build a public memorial to honor all of the fallen heroes since September 11th. They have since evolved from a charity geared towards building this memorial, into a multifaceted organization, supporting a number of causes.

Massachusetts Fallen Heroes has developed a Veterans’ Edge program and now also act as a liaison in acquiring educational, employment, medical, legal, financial and numerous additional services to local military veterans, their families and families of the fallen. Veterans’ Edge ensures that all heroes returning home receive the support and services they have earned and deserve. With this new goal, they were able to create this contest and are looking to honor one lucky couple with a dream wedding. Amazing!

  1. Normally wedding appetizers are mediocre and forgettable. We had people talking about our food even weeks after the wedding. Though the Chicago wedding venues are beautiful. You can bring in any type of furniture or use their traditional round tables.
