“Special Operations Warrior Foundation supports America’s Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps Special Operations personnel through two programs:
(1) Ensuring full financial assistance for post-secondary education from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical or trade school, as well as educational counseling, preschool grants, and tutoring to the surviving children of Special Operations personnel who lose their lives in the line-of-duty and;
(2) Providing immediate financial grants to severely combat-wounded and hospitalized Special Operations personnel and their families.
We proactively reach out to every eligible family. They do not need to apply for our help.
Additionally, SOWF realizes that one of the most difficult challenges that special operations families may face is the immediate financial burden when their loved ones are hospitalized with severe combat wounds or injuries. We fulfill this need by immediately providing a check to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so the family and loved ones can be at their bedside.
Last year, 48 special operations service members lost their lives and left behind 94 children. Those children are the newest members of the SOWF family and sadly that number continues to grow. They need your help to meet the anticipated need for scholarships.”
First to Fight is a charitable organization founded by combat veterans to give support to veterans and their families by providing guidance with the transition from active duty, a connection to other veterans, and resources to maintain a successful civilian life.
We can provide referrals, guidance, and mentors for veterans who need assistance navigating the V.A. systems, learning about benefits and services, medical care, rehabilitation, counseling, housing, job training, financial assistance, and more by reconnecting each other with sense of camaraderie.
Semper Fi & America’s Fund is dedicated to providing assistance to our combat wounded, critically ill and injured service members, military family members, and veterans, from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Our case managers, visiting nurses, and entire team support those we serve by helping navigate complex medical and emotional recovery — today, tomorrow, together!
Semper Fi & America’s Fund (The Fund) was started by and is led by military spouses who immediately jumped in to provide bedside support to early wounded and injured service members from Iraq and Afghanistan. The Fund’s model of lifelong relationships between service members and our team is unique among veteran service organizations. The Fund is run today by those same military spouses, and now includes a patriotic staff of veterans, community members, and volunteers. The Fund is not a charity. It is a family. It is love.
Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
Today’s USO continuously adapts to the needs of our men and women in uniform and their families, so they can focus on their very important mission. We operate USO centers at or near military installations across the United States and throughout the world, including in combat zones, and even un-staffed USO service sites in places too dangerous for anyone but combat troops to occupy.
USO airport centers throughout the country offer around-the clock hospitality for traveling service members and their families. Our trademark USO tours bring America and it,s celebrities to service members who are assigned far from home, to entertain them and convey the support of the nation. And our many specialized programs offer a continuum of support to service members throughout their journey of service, from the first time they don the uniform until the last time they take it off.
The USO is not part of the federal government. A congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities, and is powered by a family of volunteers to accomplish our mission of connection.
