We honor children and younger siblings of Purple Heart Recipients, both combat wounded and killed in action


Children and younger siblings of combat veterans who have been wounded or killed in action make a special sacrifice. Operation Red, White and Bike is dedicated to recognizing this incredible sacrifice that is too often overlooked. We do so through a special gift of a world-class bicycle for these little heroes, the young sons, daughters and siblings of our country’s Purple Heart recipients. Kids love bikes! We provide a high-quality, designer bike that has been selected by the child and customized to tell the story about the service of their parent or older sibling. This gift will provide the child much pleasure while reminding others of their parent’s or sibling’s service and love of country; this is a unique way to say “thanks”.
