Hosting an Active-Duty Service Member for a Holiday Deal is an incredibly rewarding experience for all involved. A simple LinkedIn post garnered over 180,000 views and many volunteers. It is time to expand from a family tradition to an online organization that serves thousands year in and year out. Our goal is to create a self-sustaining web-based community to host Vets and Active Duty for the holidays.
Paul R. Lawrence, Ph.D., former Under Secretary for Benefits, Veterans Benefits Administration is a supporter. Shawn Bertholf, a Navy Veteran, loved the concept so much he volunteered as our Project Manager and will help to take the vision for Remember our Military from concept to reality and organize the development and implementation of an automated data collection and matching system for Hosts and Guests utilizing his network of Veterans.
We see Remember Our Military as an all-volunteer project. We are not asking for monetary donations. We need volunteers to support Remember our Military and spread the word. We need volunteers who want to host active-duty military and veterans over the holidays to make sure they don’t feel alone.
• We need people in the Active-Duty space and Veteran space to spread the message regarding our mission word-of-mouth and on social media and point people to www.rememberourmilitary.com
• We need people and organizations willing to host active-duty service members and veterans during the holidays. You don’t have to be military or a veteran! If you simply want to do something good to give back to those who give so much for our country, help us spread the word by posting on social media about our mission and direct people to www.rememberourmilitary.com
Please contact me and let me know what role you would like in building Remember Our Military.
Peter G. Basica, Founder
Serving in the military and defending our country should accelerate one’s ability to get a job, live in a great community and pursue “life, liberty and happiness.”
I was born in a military family, spent 3 years in the Army, and now I am a proud Veteran who advocates for the American Dream.
Non-profits and businesses struggle in their attempt to help Veterans because of the complexities and lack of knowledge about the rules, processes and the different organizations involved and their roles.
I am a 10 year US Navy Veteran and 17 year Defense Industry “Jack-of-all-Trades and Master-of-None”. and I empower individuals and teams to reach their maximum potential through training and mentoring.
I challenge the status quo and foster innovation in organizations through adaptation of agile
practices, diversity of thought, and continuous process improvements. I increase companies bottom
lines through effective Project Management.
I spent several holidays alone while on Active Duty, so I loved the concept so much I volunteered to be the ROM Project Manager and will help to take the vision for Remember our Military from concept to reality .
Together we will organize the development and implementation of an automated data collection and matching system for Hosts and Guests utilizing my network of veterans and volunteers.

"Serving those who serve their community and country" is Park's Promise to generations of students studying at military installations across the country and online.
With a husband currently serving in the MA Army National Guard and spending holidays away from home, the mission of ROM resonates with me. Welcoming service members into our homes while they’re away from their families is a great way to show our support.
We are facing unprecedented macro-level challenges that impact our business and personal lives. Many of the business tactics and approaches that delivered results in years past became obsolete over the past 24 months, or they were forced to evolve. As a healthcare technology company, we rely on artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and big data to achieve amazing results. However, as a pragmatic business leader, I integrate both “old-school” and “new-school” techniques to achieve success.
At 360, I lead a team of passionate visionaries committed to delivering improved health outcomes and reduced healthcare expense- at the same time. We’re at the forefront of the global healthcare technology movement, providing behavior modification solutions that deliver clinically proven results. I believe in hard, passionate work, focused on a clearly defined goal that has meaning and value. I am eternally grateful to the heroes in our US military, who sacrifice all that they have for our freedom and ability to pursue our dreams each day.
I am a highly driven, passionate, forward-thinking, founder/revenue leader with 17 years of experience building and scaling start-ups/companies (5X) in Food and Beverage, Insurance, Advertising, Lead Generation and Technology.
Integrity, family, leadership, strength, work ethic, humility, passion and empathy are paramount in my personal foundation.
I am a Founder, Serial Entrepreneur, Brand Builder, Speaker, and Author with exceptional Management, Marketing, and Sales expertise across a wide range of disciplines.
I am a firm believer that my LAS education at the University of Illinois serves me well in my pursuit of an MBWL (Masters By Working and Learning), an advanced degree I continue to passionately pursue.
I see Remember Our Military as an all-volunteer project. We are not asking for monetary donations. We need volunteers to support Remember our Military and spread the word. We need volunteers who want to host active-duty military and veterans over the holidays to make sure they don’t feel alone.

The Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF) provides critical support for the warriors, veterans, and families of Naval Special Warfare (NSW). NSW performs hazardous work in unforgiving environments at an unrelenting pace. SEALs deploy across the globe and spend up to 270 days each year in harm's way.
NSF stands behind this community by providing a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed to build strength and resilience, encourage optimal health, enhance opportunities for growth through education, and solidify a sense of community and belonging.
NSF is a high-performing organization committed to excellence. 93 cents of every dollar donated directly funds our programs or is retained for future mission use. Charity Navigator has awarded NSF a 4-star rating for financial health and accountability & transparency every year since 2009, and a perfect “100" since 2014, ranking the organization higher than 99.9% of all rated charities nationwide.
The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was created in 2004 to provide a way for individuals, corporations and others to help severely wounded and disabled Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans and their families rebuild their lives.
The mission of the Coalition is to help the people who have given so much on our behalf overcome obstacles during recovery and resume a productive and fulfilling life through programs targeted to their specific needs.
The Mission of the Military Community Chamber of Commerce will be to become the joining force of the Military community. We have all been trained we work best as a team with one mission and one fight.
The Military Community Chamber of Commerce will become the tip of the spear in bringing the community and its supporters into one team, one mission and one fight.
Currently there is no group working to connect the Military Community as a whole. The current framework of the Military Community is tribal and regionally disjointed and competing Non-Profits lower the donor amounts, and limit grant capital allowing for small and slow progress toward group goals.
The disjointed nature of the Military Community pulls away from our greatest strength, team building.
My family has been hosting Active Duty Service Members and Veterans for 20 years, but Remember Our Military was created December 12, 2021.
Our Mission is to create an all volunteer group of families to Host a Hero for a Holiday Dinner across the country.
We are new. We will do our very best to accommodate your request to enjoy the holidays in 2022 with a volunteer family.
