We Need Your Support

Since the founding of our country, over 45,000,000 men and women have served in the military to safeguard our democratic freedoms and way of life.  Of these, 1,306,026 have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In 2016 there are 1,301,300 serving active duty and an additional 811,000 serving in reserve units. Many of these veterans who survive the battlefield and rigors of military service will return to their homes only to find themselves facing an even graver battlefield.  Read More
