KOREAN WAR VETERAN'S WOUNDED WARRIOR FUND
KWVA WOUNDED WARRIOR FUND
Supporting all service branches
ARMY, NAVY, MARINE CORPS, AIR FORCE AND COAST GUARD.
The KWVA Wounded Warrior Fund was founded in 2007.
We as a nation have thousands of Wounded and Injured men and women returning from the Battlefields, and recovering in our Military and Veteran's Hospitals. Most have been processed through our Military Hospitals in Europe and returned to our Military Hospitals in the United States. The Department of Defense has created Soldier and Family Assistance Centers located in or adjacent to medical facilities. Just to name a few; SFAC's, Fort Wainwright, Fairbanks, AK, Tripler WTU Schofield Barrack, HI, WTU Fort Knox, KY, Balboa Hospital WTU, San Diego, CA, Walter Reed NMMC, Bethesda, MD, Fort Sill, OK, Fort Carson, CO, Fort Leonard Wood, MO, and Fort Belvoir, VA. There are 24 of these units spread across the Nation.
An October 25, 2012 published report noted the number of Wounded has surpassed 50,000. There are 103,792 diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD, 1041 Amputees, and Troops with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and these continue to rise as the Warriors return home. It is very difficult to obtain current reports on Wounded and Injured Warriors.
We continue to have Warriors in Harm's Way in Afghanistan and Iraq as the threat of terrorism grows at home and abroad.
The KWVA Wounded Warrior Fund makes direct contributions to Soldier and Family Assistance Centers through the Army's Gift Administrator's program. All donations must be pre-approved. Funding has also been provided to the Fisher Houses located in Bethesda, MD and Ft. Belvoir, VA. Fisher Houses provide FREE temporary lodging so military and veteran's families can remain close to their loved ones who are undergoing hospital treatment. There are over 60 Fisher House locations world-wide. The Wounded Warrior Fund supports the Walter Reed Society, Walter Reed NMMC, a very important contributor to the care and treatment of our recovering Warriors and their Families. Additionally, contributions have been provided to the USO Warrior Family Centers at Ft. Belvoir and Bethesda. These newly developed Centers have multiple facilities for Warriors and their families. They include a theater, computer access, snack bars, and television areas among their well thought-out layouts.
The Wounded Warrior Fund supports Delaware's Home of the Brave, a provider of shelter for homeless men and women Veterans on their path to recovery and return to society. The Wounded Warrior Fund provides funding to local Warriors and their Families in need.
Fifteen years of war leaves us with a population of Wounded and Injured men and women whose recovery depends on contributions from our citizens. The Vietnam War ended some 40 years ago yet Veterans of that conflict continue to require medical treatment as will the Veterans of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. The War in Afghanistan continues and our involvement in the war on terror increases daily.
The KWVA Wounded Warrior Fund is a program of Bill Carr Chapter One, Sussex County, Delaware. The fund operation is all volunteer, no payroll or advertising expenses are charged to the contributions received.
