Recovering from service in combat and the toll it takes on one's health is a lifetime challenge. When additional injuries occur just as you are starting to get ahead, the impact on the family can be overwhelming. This is what has happened to this soldier, who must now deal with a devastating hand injury at the same time that he continues to be treated for his service related injuries. Unable to work, he is in significant need of assistance with rent. His only vehicle, which he uses to get to and from his numerous medical appointments is also in need of repair. You can help us provide some comfort and peace of mind at this time.
Pay Gap Creates Hardship
$770 Still Needed
Yearly relocations for this Army family of four has been quite the challenge for them financially, and then the news of a medical retirement. Still getting back on their feet, the gap between discharge and the receipt of full retirement pay and VA benefits for the soldier's injuries has created a temporary hardship. Providing assistance for their rent, car payment and some groceries will help ease them through this transition period.
Victims of Theft, Help Needed
$300 Still Needed
Coping with PTSD and supporting his family has been a challenge for this wounded soldier. And now, this challenge is now even greater for this family of 4 due to a job loss and being victims of a theft. The theft included funds needed to pay their monthly bills, and their already stretched budget does not have room to make up for what was lost. Assisting this family with their rent this month will help relieve some of the stress for this family so they can recover and move forward.
Tragedy Strikes Wounded Veteran
$724 Still Needed
It has been a heartbreaking month for this 100% combat disabled veteran and his family. A tragic motor vehicle accident took the life of his father and left his young brother in critical condition. The sudden travel cost to be with his mother and lodging expenses consumed a great deal of his available funds. Help us give him some relief from the financial stress so he can focus on supporting his mother and brother through what is sure to be a long road ahead.
Combat Medic Needs Your Help

He is in considerable need of assistance to recover financially from his stay in the hospital. Assisting him and his wife with rent, groceries, and gas to get to and from follow up appointments will help ease the tremendous stress the financial situation is placing on him as he tries to focus on his health and finding employment.
Many military families have faced eviction or foreclosure due to unexpected changes that affect their finances.
