HER LEGACY

The Emily J.T. Perez Foundation [ 501 (c) (3) ] was established in 2007 with the noble purpose of preserving the legacy of 2LT Emily J.T. Perez. Though Emily may be gone, her spirit lives on through our work, and through each young girl and woman veteran we empower to discover her limitless potential.
