Eric was a beloved husband, father, son, brother and veteran. He was a 1991 graduate of the United States Military Academy and served as an officer in the United States Army. The Gary Sinise Foundation RISE program was chosen as the charity that would best represent his memory. There are no more deserving charitable efforts than ones that directly benefit veterans who have given so much of themselves in service to this country.
For the year 2017, my book, Scout’s Honor, and my second book, Good Buddy (coming later this year) will be used to raise awareness for the Gary Sinise Foundation RISE program, which provides severely wounded veterans with smart homes. I am honored to attach my husband’s good name and my author proceeds to this fundraising effort on behalf of these incredibly brave service members.
If you purchase my books, please know that all of my author royalties and profits go to this fund, The Eric DeJong Memorial Fund. If you want to make a donation directly to this important cause, help me support the Gary Sinise Foundation by making your donation directly on the fundraising page. The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide.
