The Yellow Ribbon

The Yellow Ribbon has long been a symbol of hope and remembrance, a symbol of respect and homecoming for those who have sacrificed for a cause greater than oneself. When our service members returned from Vietnam, the Yellow Ribbon was there for them. When Americans were taken hostage in Iran in 1979, the Yellow Ribbon became a national symbol of remembrance and resolve. And during operation Desert Storm, once again, the Yellow Ribbon stood as an indelible symbol of pride, respect and resolve for the nation.

The symbolic prominence of the Yellow Ribbon grew out of the Tony Orlando iconic song “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.” Performed live by Tony in 1973 to honor nearly 600 returning Vietnam POWs at a Bob Hope hosted ceremony at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX, the song became the number one selling single in the U.S. in 1973.

For nearly 50 years Tony has volunteered his time, talent and resources to support our nation’s service members, veterans and their families. The Tribute to Valor Foundation is proud to have Tony Orlando serve on our board of directors, and lead the Tribute to Valor Essential Heroes Yellow Ribbon Scholarship program.

The Scholarship Program

In a sense, COVID-19 has taken every American hostage, as it has caused more casualties than combat operations in Iraq or Afghanistan, Vietnam or Korea. It continues to pose a clear and present danger for us all. The Tribute to Valor Essential Heroes Yellow Ribbon Scholarship program will initially launch in New York City, the epicenter of COVID-19, where the majority of our nation’s casualties have transpired. The program will help surviving spouses and children of fallen essential heroes to move forward with education, including support with tutoring, vocational training, certification and college opportunities.

The Tribute to Valor Foundation is currently developing the specific criteria and guidelines for the scholarship, with a goal of rolling the program out in late 2020.
