Military Fatherhood Award
Each year, we honor a military father that goes above and beyond to stay connected to his family while serving his country. This year's awardee, MSgt Rick Marston of the Air Force, is a devoted dad to three boys - Jake, 10, and twins Tyler and Brandon, age 6 - and a father-figure to his step-brother, Matt.
Meet this year's awardee.
Check out Drop Dad a Line, where military families can leave a message for their deployed dad!
There's no better way to honor the dad in your life with a gift to NFI. Nicholas Kristoff of the New York Times recommends that you "think of the National Fatherhood Initiative" as a gift to honor your dad. Your donation will help us develop programs and initiatives that educate and equip fathers to be the fathers their children need them to be.
Make a gift in honor of your dad today.
