TAPS  Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors - Caring for families of America's heroes

“India is the cradle of human race also the birthplace of human speech. The mother of history, the grandmother of legend also the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most constructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only.”
-Mark Twain
When your grief takes you to a place the world no longer seems beautiful, it is time to rediscover magic and seek out celebrations of love and renewal. Join your TAPS family on a journey through India where we will embrace the culture, relish in Holi Festival, and find our appreciation for the world again.
Mark your calendars & join TAPS in India March 2019! More details to be announced soon ❤️

Our surviving adult children of #fallenheroes climbed to new heights at our #Austin #Texas retreat. They shared their heroes stories and created some new amazing memories. #livinglegacy #TAPSFam #tapsretreat

The #grief journey is overwhelming. So we take it one step at a time. #newnormal #onedayatatime #oneminuteatatime

Wrapping up this week's #MentorMonday is Alex Hill!

Alex was nominated by his mentee, Ian, who has been with TAPS for 8 years, but has been Alex's mentee for 3. Ian says, "One of my favorite things about Alex is he likes a lot of the same things that I do! We both like sports and we both know how to ice skate. I know I can talk to him about anything and he has ben the best mentor I've ever had. I really look up to him." Ian's family is even planning a special trip for Alex to visit them in South Dakota!

Up next for #MentorMonday is Andre (@a_ace)! "Hi , I’m Andre. I’m a first time TAPS mentor, but am already looking for another event so I can change that statement! I have been in the Army 4 years and was introduced to TAPS by my Battalion Commander and fellow mentor. Being a mentor was among the most humbling and rewarding experiences I’ve ever had. My favorite part of being a mentor were connections built over those few days with my mentee, other kids, other mentors, and our amazing Group 9 leaders. I love my TAPS family 💙." #TAPSfam

Our #TAPSFam kiddos are in #LakeTahoe this week at the #freedomhunters camp. They’re hanging out with the @uscg and doing some swimming, #fishing, and #mountainbiking. #honorthefallen #militarykids #strongereveryday

This week's #MentorMonday is showcasing Hannah Slusser (@hannah.slusser)! 💙 "Hi! I'm Hannah! I've been a TAPS mentor for 3 years now. Both local events and Nationals. TAPS is the most humbling and rewarding experience that I have ever been involved with. I continue to serve as a TAPS mentor because it's the very least I can do for kids who have given the most. Hearing their stories are heart wrenching, but being able to put a smile on their face is so rewarding. I also love watching my mentee grow in so many ways each year. I love my TAPS fam 💓" If you, or someone you know would like to be nominated for #MentorMonday, share the hashtag or email andrea.madge@taps.org with a photo & short story of your mentor history! #tapsfam
