The Special Operations Warrior Foundation, founded in 1980, provides support and assistance to the U. S. military’s special operations community. Their mission includes two major aspects in support of special operations personnel: providing a full college education to the surviving children of those who lose their lives while serving in the U.S. military special operations community, and also providing immediate financial assistance and support to ensure that severely wounded personnel are able to have their loved ones at their bedside during recovery.
The National Military Family Association was organized in 1969 as the National Military Wives Association by a group of wives and widows seeking financial security for survivors of uniformed service personnel and retirees. They developed the Survivor Benefit Plan and been in the vanguard of advocacy for improvements in the quality of military family life. The name of the organization was changed, replacing the word “wives” with “family,” in 1984 to reflect the broad scope of their involvement.
ProtectOurTroops.org was started in 2009 and is a brand new charity. Protect our Troops is currently working on establishing its 501c3 status and looks forward to assisting as many military families as possible. P.O.T was started for soldiers by soldiers when its founder realized during his time in the army national guard that there was a major need for home security and protection for the loved ones of military families nationwide. It is the goal of P.O.T to bring free security protection to every deployed troop and his or her family.
