Bill May was all about honor, and service. The House of Heroes Connecticut Chapter cofounder, who passed away in December 2016 following a two-year battle with cancer, made a life of serving both his country and his fellow comrades in need through his devotion to the House of Heroes mission. In Bill’s final months, he worked tirelessly in his dual roles as chairman of both House of Heroes National and the Connecticut Chapter to do all he could to expand House of Heroes nationwide impact. One thing Bill knew was that he could not do it alone - fulfillment of the House of Heroes mission was then, and remains today, dependent upon an army of advocates,volunteers, sponsors and supporters who make our work possible. So it is only fitting that Bill, and his legacy of service, be celebrated by honoring, on an annual basis, those vital supporters who help us keep Bill’s dream alive.

The William J. May III Service Above Self Award was introduced by House of Heroes Connecticut in 2019 to honor the memory and legacy of our co-founder, Bill May. The award is presented annually to a sponsor, volunteer and craftsman whose tireless efforts and
generosity help make our mission possible. On behalf of Bill, and our entire House of Heroes Connecticut team, thank you to all who are helping us keep alive Bill's dream to serve his fellow veterans.

“I DRAW INSPIRATION FROM THOSE I MEET,
THOSE WE ARE ABLE
TO HELP. WE'RE ALL
TIME-LIMITED ON
THIS EARTH, BUT
THAT SHOULDN'T STOP
ANY OF US FROM
REACHING OUT TO THE
PERSON STANDING
RIGHT NEXT TO US, TO
GIVE THEM HELP, GIVE
THEM A HAND,GIVE
THEM A LEG UP.”
