This year, Heroes Helping Heroes will pay tribute to 'Women Who Make a Difference in the Lives of the Troops', honoring some of the most dedicated women from all walks of life, in honor of World War II Navy Veteran, Millie Taylor. Though Millie lost her brother in war times in Germany, and became a 'Gold Star Mother' losing her son in Vietnam, Taylor remains a woman of conviction, passion, never losing sight of the importance of service.
"Honoring Millie Taylor, and her brave, selfless service this year with the Millie Taylor Award, we hope to establish an inspiring tradition of service." states Deputy Christopher T. Landavazo, founder of Cops 4 Causes. "Paying tribute to those who have risen up in service, both traditional and non-traditional, will reinforce the efforts of the brave who continue to volunteer and sacrifice for our country."
This year's coveted "Millie Taylor Award" will be presented to some familiar names to most, for their dedicated service to our troops. The famed Tippi Hedren, the beautiful Loni Anderson, Young & the Restless star Kate Linder, and everyone's most remembered mom from The Walton's, Michael Learned.
