Our primary service area is the greater NY Metropolitan area. Including Eastern PA, MD, DE, Washington DC, and CT.

Anyone who supports First Responders and Veterans, or has an interest in advocating for mental health and suicide prevention is welcome to join Betties Bombers community. We support those who support us and have many opportunities for you to get involved and help us further our mission.

Memorial Day – Moment of Silence
May 25 @ 3:00 PM – 3:01 PM

The National Moment of Remembrance was established as an act of Congress that asks Americans to pause at 3 p.m. local time to reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day.

Please join us at 3PM EST to observe a moment of silence for the ones who did not come home from service to our nation. May they forever Rest in Peace.

 


 

PRESIDENT CLINTON:
CALLING ON ALL AMERICANS TO JOIN IN A NATIONAL MOMENT OF REMEMBRANCE

“As we contemplate the comforts and blessings of our lives and the well-being of our nation, I ask you to pause just for a moment to remember those who gave their lives to protect the values that give meaning to our lives.”

President Bill Clinton
May 31, 1999

The National Moment of Remembrance program was established to remind Americans of the sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces as well as others who have died as a result of service to this nation. Americans around the world should pause and remember these heroes in a symbolic act of unity.

  • Objectives:
    • To raise Americans’ awareness of the honorable contributions made by those who died while defending our nation.
    • To encourage all Americans to honor those who died as a result of service to this nation by pausing for one minute at 3:00 p.m. (local time) on Memorial Day.
