A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) Honor Guard Gala at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington DC. Just like in previous years, it was an incredibly moving event, and a beautiful tribute to the sacrifices of our fallen heroes and their loved ones.
This coming weekend is the Marine Corps Marathon, 10k and Kids Fun Run. I am proud to say that Telos has fielded a TAPS Run & Remember Team for both the Army 10 Miler and the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. This will be the third year that Telos employees are given the privilege to run in honor of a fallen hero, and to reach out to the surviving family members for support while they train for the race.
Earlier today I had the privilege to spend a few hours at the TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) Good Grief Camp and Survivor Seminar in Arlington, where thousands of surviving children, parents, husbands, wives, and fiancés gathered to remember and heal from the tragic loss of their fallen heroes. What a great kick off to the Memorial Day weekend.
Over the years, Telos has formed a wonderful relationship with Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). We believe strongly in their mission to bring comfort and support to those loved by our fallen heroes.
