Hearts of Valor
The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and the miraculous improvements in battlefield medicine have produced a new community of survivors; those warriors who come home. But those who come home have changed.
These changes, be they emotional or physical, often require the tireless efforts of spouses, mothers, sisters or other loved ones to support and care for them. If you are one of those selfless caregivers, this program was created just for you.
Through on-site support communities, and our virtual community that includes an online discussion forum, Hearts of Valor provides female caregivers with opportunities to build relationships, access resources and enjoy brief moments of rest and respite from their care giving responsibilities.
Two-day retreats are available for members of the Hearts of Valor program who serves as a caregiver to a wounded, ill, or injured service member.

Even Heroes Need Some Help
Our service members and their families are heroes to us. Some are everyday heroes and some are uncommon ones. Most would not consider themselves heroes, rather they tell us they were just doing their job. Doing their job, means preserving our freedom. Please help us, continue to help them. To learn more about our programs and to find out how you can help, please contact our national office or your local Operation Homefront office.
CriteriaTo be eligible to join the program, you must be the wife, mother,
