America's Mighty Warriors

Debbie Lee, mother of Marc Alan Lee wanted to start a non-profit organization inspired by Marc's passion communicated in his Last Letter home. U.S. Navy officers told Debbie Lee that her son died after single-handedly holding off enemy fighters as his team rescued a wounded soldier from a rooftop. During the two-hour battle, Navy officials informed her that Marc Lee fired 100 rounds of ammunition against insurgents before he was killed. The mission statement for America's Mighty Warriors states 'To honor, thank, support, and encourage the troops and their families and remember the sacrifice of my "Mighty Warrior" Marc Alan Lee, the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq. To accept the challenge from his last letter home and “pass on the kindness, the love, the precious gift of human life, through random acts of kindness” that will impact and honor our military, the fallen and their families for their selfless service and sacrifice.'

Debbie Lee has toured the nation, speaking at pro-troop rallies, and helping to organize shipments of care packages to our troops serving overseas. She also made history as the first Gold Star Mother to enter the combat zone and visit the city where her son died. Her tireless love and support for our troops is reflected in the years of full-time volunteering as she stands behind those who have stood to defend her.
