GotUr6 is classified by the IRS as 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the service and community support of our hometown hero’s from law enforcement, firefighting, EMS and military veterans. Additionally, this service may also be extended to the families they leave behind. Our mission and focus is simple and is inspired from the Bible verse, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friend” John 15:13
Every veteran, LEO and Firefighter chooses to do a job that few aspire with great sacrifice to their families and friends to ensure our safety and freedom. If the ultimate sacrifice of duty is given, the gratitude and debt we owe them pales little in comparison to what we have received. For this gratitude we are GotUr6.
Who We Are
The Board of Directors for GotUr6 is composed of former and retired military members, retired law enforcement, paramedics, RN’s and firefighters, corporate CEOs and other good people with a compassionate heart and a willingness to give to others. GotUr6 wants to work with larger organizations and service providers to ensure no Veteran or First Responder falls through the cracks. None are left behind, or fade into the shadows to be forgotten. We want to be the beacon of hope, the light of awareness, that pillar of strength to help them get the help and support they deserve and so desperately need.
What Does GotUr6 Mean?
During World War I, pilots began using positions on the clock face to identify points of interest, other ally aircraft or even threat aircraft to their formations and crew members as a quick, efficient and easily understood way of describing position relative to the aircraft giving these directions. The Flight Lead did most of the communication so anything in front of the aircraft would be 12 o’clock and anything behind him in his blind spot would be 6 o’clock.
It became a promise for support, safety and protection under austere and deadly conditions among military and law enforcement everywhere. The phrase became much more than just a way to give position over radio communications but as a way to tell a brother, a friend, a teammate or just someone you are concerned that you are there for them. That you have their best interests at heart and you are not only concerned for their well-being but will do anything within your ability to protect them, guide them, and keep them safe.
