The William J. May III
Service Above Self Awards
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. House of Heroes Connecticut is proud to introduce this year its
inaugural William J. May III Service Above Self Awards, to be presented annually to a sponsor, contractor & volunteer whose selfless contributions help make our mission possible.
Congratulations to this year’s honorees! Your time, talents and financial support are fitting tributes to Bill May’s legacy, and are helping
House of Heroes Connecticut continue to Make a Difference in a Day for deserving Connecticut veterans. Thank you!
“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.”
