A Living Memorial to Those Who Sacrificed the Most

March for the Fallen (#MFTF) is a living memorial to honor the memory of all that have fallen in the defense of our nation (started by Major General Gronski). The live community event is hosted by the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Training Center at Fort Indiantown Gap.
 You can always sign up here (or reach out to your local team leader if you are participating in a local version of the event).

As a reminder, March for the Fallen is a unique charity where the contribution is NOT money. The contribution at #MFTF is remembering the Fallen (and their families) when you are training/participating in the event.

Why should you attend?

    • To show gratitude for Gold Star Families and to honor the Fallen.

    Who should attend?

        How did Alpha Architect get involved?

        AA is a veteran-owned organization with representation across most of the US Armed Forces (U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Army — we’re still waiting for our first U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard teammates!). Our organization believes in supporting those who serve. Our goal with March for the Fallen is to bring awareness to the broader finance community of the sacrifices made by Service Members who died in the line of duty (example here). What started as a 10-person AA team-building event in 2016, turned into a financial services community event. We hope the event gets bigger and better.
