We are kicking off this years Boots on the Ground for Heroes Memorial with a special event honoring Rhode Island's Gold Star families. This event will be hosted the Thursday (May 25) before the Boots on the Ground Memorial and will feature food, live music, silent auctions and raffles. All proceeds will go toward the memorial and Operation Stand Down RI.
Launched last year, Boots on the Ground honored all of the fallen military heroes post 9/11 by displaying a boot, with a flag and a name placard for each hero in Roger Williams Park. this year the event will return to the park on Memorial Day weekend.
