The Warrior Foundation
The Warrior Foundation has vowed to help the seriously injured who are assigned to Naval Regional Medical Center, Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital, 29 Palms and Fort Irwin as well as those who are going through rehabilitation in the San Diego area.
Since being formed live on the air by its founder, Mr. Rick Roberts of KFMB Radio Station, and in partnership with the San Diego Navy League Council, which gives us our status as a 501c3 Foundation, the Warrior Foundation has been able to help our warriors both financially and with gifts in kind.
The goal of the Warrior Foundation is to add comfort to the recovering wounded, from all branches of the service, and help with some of the things they need for a little better quality of life, as well as assisting them in their recovery.
The Freedom Station concept has grown based on the needs the Warrior Foundation has witnessed in their other efforts to bring assistance to our wounded heroes. In this regard they have formed a separate and distinct organization to help reach the goal of providing this absolutely necessary service to our returning heroes.
The Warrior Foundation is now focused on establishing an effort to build recovery transition centers, beginning in San Diego, CA. In a very real sense, this effort is intended to assist in the ‘time of doubt’ after the retirement or discharge of mentally and physically challenged military members.
In this critical time of each soldier’s life comes the many decisions that may affect the rest of his/her life. They need help pursuing a career, locating or purchasing housing in our communities, choosing a college or vocational school and getting enrolled, getting back and forth to doctors and physical rehabilitation appointments.
The Warrior Foundation feels a helping hand is needed at this point in their lives between the military and the awesome task of returning to productive civilian active lives, for the rest of their lives, is the best way to help solve some of the issues wartime causes.
Our wounded warriors are a very proud bunch of guys and gals, and they don’t want to be a burden on anyone. Persistence and enthusiasm are attributes each of our wounded warriors possesses. This drive and strong will to achieve success will help us to assist them in surmounting the rough road of remarkable mental change and challenge.
The Warrior Foundation is looking for support of our efforts from all who might care about the fate of our valiant heroes.
