The success of Children of Fallen Patriots can be told by countless surviving scholars, including Johannah Bordelon, Daughter of fallen U.S. Army First Sergeant Michael Joseph Bordelon.“My entire life, I wanted to make my Dad proud and take advantage of the opportunities he has given me through his sacrifice. The moment I contacted Fallen Patriots, they assisted with everything I needed. Knowing that I have extra help takes the burden of student loans off my shoulders.
