In Honor Of

Spc Ross A. McGinnis

The inspiration to create Village to Village Foundation came when the news of SPC Ross A McGinnis' (United States Army) heroic act was first heard of in December 2006. He is a young soldier who gave his life by using his body to cover a grenade; thereby saving four of his friends. Ross' unselfish and heroic action inspired the creation of this non-profit organization, to carry Ross' message forward. We are all in this together!

Hello Villagers!

Please read this message.

Do you know your words and acts of kindness lighten the burden for a family member to one of our fallen veterans.  For example, the simple act of saying "thank you", or "I thought of Ross, Matthew, Juan, Clint, Jeremy, or Nathan today", can move a mountain.

If you are reading this, please go to each veteran's token and say those words.  Their loved ones read these messages and their day is made brighter, their burden lightened, and a smile goes on their lips and in their heart, knowing someone cares.  Someone cares not only for them, but the one they love so dearly.

You count, you matter, you can make a difference just by doing this simple task.  To enter your message simply use the links above and type in the veteran's first name where it asks for a code.

I read a remarkable quote by Eleanor Roosevelt: "Lest I keep my complacent way I must remember somewhere out there a person died for me today. As long as there must be war, I ask and I must answer was I worth dying for?"

Reach out, reach within, but don't stop reaching!

but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark."
