About Us

Our Story

Many service members are deployed and come back with severe injuries or have died defending our freedom. Their service to our country changes their family lives forever that could have adverse effects on families living a healthy life.

Timothy and Carolyne Sharp, Founders of A Patriot’s Legacy Foundation, experienced their son having severe injuries due to combat and seen the impact it made towards the family. After their son died due to other conditions, the family’s primary concern was the mental awareness of their grand daughter. Military assistance was limited or time sensitive, and as children, they do not know how to express their emotions. Being the voice of the children is important during a traumatic change to maintain a positive well-being.

Providing a mentoring program, sponsoring an activity the child enjoys and special events outside of school will keep them in a healthy state of mind during a stressful time while assisting the wounded/surviving parent with the recovery or healing process.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” – Maya Angelou

About the Logo

When looking at the logo you will see a serviceman holding a baby girl.  This is an actual picture of Sgt. Timothy W. Sharp Jr. and his daughter Tierra in 2013.  The logo presents sentimental meaning but also reminds everyone of all the service members that defend our country and leave behind their children.

“Providing these types of services is a small price to pay for the veteran who defended our freedom.”
