Operation First Response has had the honor of sponsoring over 755 portraits of our Fallen Heroes painted by the artist Kaziah Hancock.

These portraits are treasured by the families of our Fallen (this is NOT exclusive to Killed in Action) and allow all of us to be part of the “Final Salute” to these amazing Heroes who gave all for each of us. It reminds the families that our grateful nation will never forget their sacrifices.

Each portrait is 18” x 24” framed oil on canvas and shipped directly to the families.

If you know of a Fallen Hero’s family that has not received a portrait, please feel free to contact us with their information and we will make sure they receive one.


Though they may be gone from this world their spirits will live within us forever.

Their spirit lives in each of us as we cherish every breath of Freedom that these Heroes paid the ultimate price to secure.

Please consider donating to this project so that we may continue to offer the families of the Fallen this beautiful memento of our gratitude.
Please remember this is NOT exclusive to Killed in Action.
