Yellow Ribbons United (YRU) is a nonprofit focused on bridging the gap between military
service and civilian life through civic and social action. YRU strives to engage more
civilians to appreciate the sacrifices and challenges that our military families experience
through the Kid2Kid campaign.
Derrick and Emma Dockery founded YRU having experienced firsthand the challenges
of growing up as military children. Emma was inspired to start Yellow Ribbons United
after her brother passed away bravely fighting for our freedom in Afghanistan.
