Memorial Day

sailboatLet the race begin!  During the FIGAWI Sailboat Regatta, our Heroes are all hands on deck to assist and crew. The race?  It’s action packed: serious fun and camaraderie during a competitive sail from Hyannis to Nantucket… Over 200 boats & a thousand sailors convene each year for this major regatta. It’s a tradition. For 44 years, FIGAWI kicks off each and every Cape and Islands summer season.  For our Heroes and their families, this race kicks off a special kind of salute: an all expense paid Holidays For Heroes Experience they will never forget.

MemorialDaymilitaryAfter the race, the HFH team gets to work. Our wounded warriors and their families receive a Hero’s welcome Nantucket style, lead by the Nantucket Firefighters Color Guard. It’s the way we do things here, just in time for the Memorial Day Parade and Veterans’ Memorial Service.  A good, old fashioned VFW family barbecue culminates a weekend saturated in community, fraternity and solidarity.

This Experience embraces a HFH resolve: ALWAYS honor servicemen and CELEBRATE OUR DUTY to assure our Heroes and their families that their personal sacrifices and the resulting struggles will not go unsupported.
