A Place for Mom has created the “Wall of Honor” to highlight U.S. veterans and pay tribute to the men and women who have played a critical role in our nation’s history. This tribute offers family and friends the opportunity to celebrate a loved one that has served in the U.S. military by sharing a treasured photo along with military and life highlights, and personal messages. We invite you to spend time enjoying these images and stories, and welcome the submission of new profiles.
Toby Setters (and Elvis) swearing in for Army duty; find out what he thought of the King as a bunkmate. Toby is wearing the white jacket behind the guy with the pompadour. APFM's Wall of Honor allows families to add their veterans to our page.
