Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp

Each Memorial Day, our country remembers those who have served and died. As we reflect on the costs of freedom, survivors come together to tell stories of their fallen heroes. They name their loved ones, celebrate their lives and decide again to live bigger and better on their behalf.

During the days, survivors will have the opportunity to participate in activities, workshops led by experts in grief and loss, and small-group sharing sessions. Over family-style meals and while participating in special events throughout Washington, D.C., they will meet and connect with other survivors.

Many volunteers are needed to insure that our National Seminar runs smoothly. Please join us as we remind TAPS families that a grateful nation never forgets!
