Profiles of Valor

Legacy of the 39

Service. Sacrifice. Legacy. Citizenship.

While many of America's military members of today are ordinary citizens, young men and women, fresh out of high school or college, all with varying interests, they do share one common, underlying trait.

Dedication has been the backbone of the United States' armed services since its inception. If not for the dedication of our troops who 
endure unimaginable discomforts, far away from family and loved ones, our freedoms would not be possible.

The Story of the 39

Every generation has examples that highlight the best of us with regards to selfless acts, dedications to causes that are bigger than themselves and unparalleled passion to serve. During the start of WWII a trend emerged that a small group of individuals that dedicated there lives to the love of our country’s national past time stepped away for a great love. This great love was the love of country, freedom and liberty for all persons in the world. These 39 put their passion and love of baseball to serve a greater cause.

We highlight these individuals not for their actions, but for the characteristics and ideals that makes our culture and society a shining example of what great humans are really all about. It is their stories that we recognize and educate future generations about to encourage them to be the best versions of themselves and servant citizens of a global community.
