Semper Fi & America’s Fund cares for our nation’s critically wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, and military families. Supporting all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, we provide one-on-one case management, connection, and lifetime support. Today. Tomorrow. Together.
Every combat wounded, critically ill, and catastrophically injured U.S. service member and military family will experience the appreciation and respect of our supporters. Our warriors and their families will achieve the highest possible quality of life and independence in a loving, caring, and committed community. They will not be forgotten on their road to recovery.
Our Mission is Critical. Our Duty is Clear.
Our work began when the first wave of wounded Marines and Sailors returned from the Iraq War. A small but determined group of military spouses launched a dynamic effort to help them, which grew into a nationwide nonprofit embracing all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Both proven and innovative, The Fund’s unique care model provides a holistic path to physical, mental, and emotional recovery.
