Our Community Salutes is a national, non-profit organization helping communities recognize, honor and support high school seniors who plan to enlist into the U.S. Armed Services after graduation.

Who We Serve

Enlistees. We recognize and honor high school seniors who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation, while also providing them with planning and career resources that aid in their transition into military service.

Parents & Families. We recognize and honor the parents/guardians and families of high school seniors who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation, as well as providing them valuable information and resources to support their son or daughter’s decision to join the military.

Communities. We help communities by providing the collective networking, resources, and support of like-minded parents, veterans, families, high school and college educators, business, and other civic organizations serving members of the armed forces, all coming together for the single purpose of honoring our nation’s youngest and newest heroes.
