Hearts4Leo is an opportunity to celebrate the veteran and military community by recognizing loved ones and hometown heroes who demonstrate leadership and dedication to serving others. Every $10 you donate will earn you a heart to recognize a hometown hero or a loved one who served. Hearts will be displayed online here. Please allow a few business days.

The campaign is in honor of the late Colonel Leo K. Thorsness, a Medal of Honor recipient and one of the most highly decorated American airmen of the Vietnam War.


After returning from being a prisoner of war for six years, Thorsness’s life mantra focused on four F’s “Faith, Family, Friends, and Fun.” His mantra lives on through each and every one of us. His birthday was on February 14, which is why we choose to honor him around Valentine’s Day each year. He is the co-founder of our parent organization, America's Warrior Partnership.

Please email Roy Dobbins if you are an organization or business interested in participating at

Add the name(s) of the individual who served in the "dedicate this gift" option so we can recognize them on a heart.
