Provide housing for Veterans in need while feeding and lifting the mind and spirit of our service members and Veterans along the way.

Real Life Heroes.info is providing housing to our first Veteran in need. Nick was found living out of his truck so he could afford to go to college. Nick lives in an area that receives over 200 inches of snow every winter and is below 40 degrees about 5 to 6 months of the year. Nick is now living out of an apartment provided free-of-charge by Real Life Heores.info.

I didn't want to put a burden on anyone and didn't think living out of my truck was so bad. I probably wouldn't be in my truck anymore, but I would be wondering how I was going to get though the winter."  Read More

OUR BOOK - "What Does a Veteran Mean to Me?"
The first edition of "What Does a Veteran Mean to Me?" is in circulation. High School students from Calumet, Michigan were asked to answer the question, what does a Veteran mean to me? Their moving and heart-warming answers have been captured and are available.

This book is being used to raise funds so we can help our Veterans. Portions of the sales proceeds go directly to help Veterans in need. Our goal is to sell ONE MILLION books. Books can be purchased at The Office Shop in Calumet, Michigan or on eBay.
