Support for Wounded, Ill, and Injured Special Operators
Immediate Financial Support for Families of Severely Wounded Special Operations Personnel
Special Operators are deployed in over 80 countries every day. One of the most difficult challenges that special operations families may face is the immediate financial burden when their loved one is hospitalized with severe combat wounds, injuries, or illness. Since 2006, Special Operations Warrior Foundation has provided immediate financial support to over 1,200 severely wounded, ill, and injured Special Operators requiring hospitalization. In 2021, 25 received financial assistance that comforted each service member.
When a Special Operator (or support personnel) is severely wounded, ill or injured resulting in being hospitalized, SOWF immediately sends a check to the service member (or his/her designated recipient) so the family and loved ones can be at their bedside.
These funds are used to reduce the burden of unexpected expenses such as airfare, child care, pet care, rental cars, etc. Additionally, SOWF sends the hospitalized service member an iPad to facilitate connectivity with friends and family.
SOWF also sends an additional stipend, on a case-by-case basis, to severely wounded, ill, or injured warriors who are hospitalized for an extended period of time.
