About “Patriot Appreciation”
In partnership with Hearts of Montage, Montage Laguna Beach, the Patriot Appreciation program offers Montage Laguna Beach and Homefront America the opportunity to recognize the sacrifices of those who serve our country, and to reward those who go to extraordinary efforts in that service. At the same time, it allows grateful citizens the ability to express their gratitude to these brave men and women.
This program is an excellent opportunity for command leaderships to reward an outstanding patriot for going above and beyond his/her call of duty, both abroad while deployed, and in the community. Priority is given to service members recently returning from deployment. There is no cost or obligation for this program.
The winner of the 2015 “Montage Patriot Appreciation Award: is:
