Tough To Adjust After Deployment
$2,028 Still Needed
After returning from his deployment to Afghanistan, this Air Force Reservist could not find work for some time, causing the family to rely on their savings. Though he has now been able to secure employment, medical bills and a depleted savings account has left the family struggling to make ends meet this month. Please help us get this family back on their feet as we head into the New Year.
Needs Overwhelm Injured Soldier
$886 Still Needed
This injured soldier and father of four is due to be medically retired shortly. Uncertainty about the future combined with large dental bills and car repairs were already stressing the family when another critical car repair need arose. Having spent much of their funds already, they don't have what they need to make their vehicle safe. Help us get them on the road to the next chapter in their life.
Help Keep Home Warm in Winter
$558 Still Needed
A recent decline in this Army veteran's health has caused him to have to withdraw from his school program temporarily. Some of his expenses we recouped, and while he hopes those costs will be reimbursed, the expense has left the family in a bind for heating oil as winter approaches. With your support, we can keep their home warm as they focus on his health and getting him back on his feet.
Combat Engineer Struggles
$784 Still Needed
Having served as a combat engineer in Afghanistan, this medically retired soldier continues to suffer from the residual effects of his brain injury and PTSD. Though he is unable to work, he manages as well as he can, unless something unexpected happens. That was the case with repairs to his car, which used up the small amount of funds he had available. Please help us make sure he doesn't lose his vehicle so he can get to and from critical medical appointments.
Knowing When To Ask For Help
$343 Still Needed
Having been awarded a Bronze Star during his many combat deployments, this Air Force Master Sergeant knew that what he was experiencing health wise was something that needed attention. As a result, he was hospitalized for over a week, and the loss of income has become an additional burden for the family. Please help us keep the lights on for this brave family.
Frightening Year For Army Family
$4,142 Still Needed
It has been a frightening year for this Army family. After being medically evacuated, then spending months at Walter Reed, this soldier is home and recuperating, but still needs significant help in day-to-day functions. His wife is his caregiver, and she and his son need critical dental work. Please help us ensure they aren't burdened with more than they already are by assisting with dental costs and mortgage payment.
VA Wait Creates Hardship
$1,259 Still Needed
This Purple Heart recipient and combat veteran was recently medically retired by the Army at 100% disabled. He is awaiting final VA determination, which he expects to receive by year end. His spouse is his caregiver, but cannot apply for benefits until the VA determination is made. The time elapsed has created a financial strain on the family of 6. With your support, they can welcome the New Year with some peace of mind.
Going Around With Paperwork
$671 Still Needed
This recently medically retired soldier has repeatedly submitted paperwork to the VA so that his compensation will reflect that he has a family, but he has been unsuccessful in correcting their error. His injuries are too severe for him to work, and being only compensated as if he were single has meant a tough time making ends meet. He has been assured the error will be corrected in the next two months, but for now, the family is worried about keeping the lights on and groceries in the cupboard.
When Caregivers Need Help
$910 Still Needed
Our caregivers are the heroes behind the heroes, but when their health is in jeopardy, then the family soon is in crisis. When the spouse of this wounded Marine had to have multiple heart surgeries, they found themselves also in a financial crisis, and weren't able to keep up with their car payments. This is their only vehicle and they need it now more than ever. Help us ensure they will have reliable transportation by assisting with car payments.
Pay Error Not Resolved
$560 Still Needed
This soldier has had two surgeries since returning from overseas, and is currently awaiting a medical board. An error in the submission of his travel paperwork resulted in finance recouping a large amount of pay from him erroneously. They are working to correct the problem, but he does not know when that will happen. Please help us keep a roof over his head while he gets the situation sorted.
Moving Closer to Needed Care
$444 Still Needed
This wounded Marine was recently discharged from a several month hospital stay for continued treatment of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress. Because the family home was 90 miles away, his family moved closer to where he can get the help he needs to heal. This has been incredibly stressful on the family and their finances, and they need help to keep the new residence they have.
Set To Be Medically Retired
$320 Still Needed
As a result of his two deployments to Iraq, where he experienced a traumatic brain injury and back injury while carrying a battle buddy, this soldier is soon to be medically retired. An extraordinary amount was deducted from his last pay period, leaving this seriously injured single Dad without the funds to cover all of his expenses. With your help, we can get him through this temporary financial crisis by assisting with payments on his only vehicle so he can transport his children and get to his numerous medical appointments.
Home Isn't What It Should Be
$610 Still Needed
This Army soldier spent much of his three tours to Iraq defending combat engineers in dangerous areas. While he made it home safe, the experience of that has stayed with him, and he struggles every day with his health and well being. Having a landlord that ignored city codes, resulting in a city mandated eviction certainly does not help. He and his caregiver used their scarce resources to secure new housing, but they need assistance with rent for this month. Help us get them back on their feet.
Added Costs For Adapted Vehicle
$536 Still Needed
This combat veteran of the Iraq War was recently assisted by the VA with obtaining a specially adapted vehicle that will accommodate his significant injuries. A paperwork error by the dealership resulted in a large tax bill being assessed to the family, and since this was their only vehicle, they had to pay it in order to register the vehicle. This has placed significant financial strain on the family. With your help, we can alleviate that burden by assisting with rent and utilities.
Many military families have faced eviction or foreclosure due to unexpected changes that affect their finances. Transitioning wounded service members may see a pay decrease once their military pay stops and their disability benefits begin. Help families keep a roof over their heads.
Pay The Electric Bill of a Military Family
Your donation of just $200 could provide power for a month to a military family in need or ensure that power is kept on for wounded warriors who need medical equipment for survival.
Help Feed A Military Family
We assist struggling military families by providing food boxes, grocery gift certificates, or vouchers to the commissary. Each family is provided enough food for a week while case workers help them find long-term solutions. Your $20 gift can give a hot meal to a military family.
Help A Warrior Transition To Civilian Life
Our young returning veterans are at risk of becoming homeless if they don't get help transitioning to civilian life. We offer free housing for wounded service members and their families to live during the transition process. These families get extra help to prepare and move to a place of their own.
Help Keep Essential Vehicle Rolling
Getting around is hard when your car is being repaired, but imagine trying to get around with a significant injury and add 2-3 medical appointments a day. Some wounded service members do not have enough money to fix their vehicles. Your donations can help heroes with much-needed repairs.
Provide Comfort For Military Family
What happens when a military spouse turns on the water to bathe a child and finds no hot water? The repair might have been feasible when their service member was home but due to deployment or injury recovery that is no longer possible. You can help make a difference.
Send a Caregiver To A Retreat
Caregivers are essential to the successful recovery of our heroes wounded in combat. But they need to get away, connect with others in their unique situation and rejuvenate.
