One of Kyle’s earliest acts of service was in 2003 when his family sponsored a platoon that was serving in Iraq. Kyle passed out flyers in his neighborhood asking family, friends, neighbors and local businesses to help support the deployed troops. Kyle believed that serving your country, being a part of a greater whole, and being dedicated to preserving our nation’s freedoms was the most honorable job a person could have. To honor Kyle’s legacy, the Coumas family has chosen to support the Welcome Home Heroes Foundation.
