“Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

Our PSA with Buddy Jewell & Richard Lynch
The Love Tattoo Foundation was born as the positive outcome from a truly devastating event. Law Enforcement Officer, Charles “Chuck” Brisbin, was moved by a story he had heard of a young man who left for Afghanistan as a soldier for his country and came back disfigured. Being involved closely with our country's military, Chuck was compelled to honor this man in any way he could, to show his humble gratitude. So he turned to poetry. Chuck wrote a beautiful poem titled Love Tattoo. After he finished the poem, he wanted to take it a step further by finding a voice that would be the spirit of his message; not only for this man, but for every man and woman who've sacrificed everything for what we have. Without hesitation, he turned to country music artist, Richard Lynch. Richard has a passion and respect for our military that is not to be taken lightly. He was humbled and honored to be asked to turn this poem into a song. Since then, Richard's adaptation of the poem has literally brought veterans of all ages and walks of life to tears on the spot. From this a greater cause was revealed. There are folks ranging from 18 to 81 years old that will carry mental and physical scars with them for the rest of their lives, because they fought for our freedom. The most shocking fact of this is that there is no organization designated specifically to these folks and their needs. It came to our attention that these men and women almost feel ostracized; they feel like damaged goods. With very little discussion, it was decided that we would take a stand and help these amazing people. They should be lifted up and honored, not put away on a dusty shelf.
