Over 1.4 Million

Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn dependents need assistance


Of wounded service members' families do not qualify for Veterans Administration federal educational benefits.

Our Mission

Over 700,000 soldiers have been killed or disabled in the military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan--Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. These service members  families exceed the national average of 2.5 dependents per household. As of January 1, 2012, over one million dependents have been adversely affected by multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. More than 87% of the dependents affected by the recent wars do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. While the federal government provides some support for these families, it cannot succeed alone without proactive civilian organizations to assist.
