Since 2004 we have provided funding to many wounded Veterans, including spouses of our Fallen Warriors. What is unique about how we disperse financial help is that we ask our member Veterans to send out the checks to those new to our organization. Along with each check, our Vets send a letter introducing themselves, telling their own stories and letting recipients know they have someone who understands and is there for them. With limited resources, the WHOA checks are not huge but they come with something most valuable, even priceless – second chances to make a new life because someone cares.

Every dollar counts at WHOA. Your donation will go a long way to help the Wounded Heroes and their families.
