VIENNA, Va., Sept. 9, 2015 -- Coinciding with the anniversary of 9-11 (Patriot Day), the R4 Alliance, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization whose member organizations provide community and formal-based therapeutic recreational therapy (RT) programs throughout all of the 50 United States to military service members (and families) suffering from military-related medical conditions announces the launch of the "Patriots' Parade" initiative. The initiative includes an interactive digital platform for military members, families and friends to create tributes in honor of those who have served the U.S. in a military capacity dating back to the American Revolution (regardless of active duty in battle). The project is web-based to centralize communication and promote widespread awareness. An integral aspect of the project includes a listing of names, photos and videos of patriots from all military era's, beginning in 1775. Log onto www.patriotsparade.org to create a tribute for a tax-deductible donation of $9.11 that will directly benefit military veterans through the R4 Alliance
