The Armed Forces Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guard members, reservists, military families, and veterans.
With the launch of the Help Save Our Troops campaign, the AFF proactively educates Americans about the hidden wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, and advocates for the troops and veterans who have suffered these wounds. The ultimate goal of Help Save Our Troops is to reduce military suicides.
Give to the Armed Forces Foundation and help promote the physical, mental, and emotional wellness of military service members, veterans, and their families today.
Did you know? A U.S. veteran commits suicide every sixty-five minutes. It's time we stopped this trend.
Return the Service is a campaign focused on improving the lives of the more than 1.2 million Millennial veterans in the United States. Our campaign aims to shine a spotlight on the many issues facing young service men and women returning to civilian life, including the critical resources needed to help them deal with issues like mental and physical health and unemployment. Together, and alongside local, state and national policymakers, we can make a positive difference in the lives of those who have served us abroad.
That Which I Love Destroys Me is a unique and powerful film by director Ric Roman Waugh. TWILDM is an uncensored look at the current epidemic of PTSD and severe mental trauma that create tremendous challenges for returning service members. A five-year labor of love, TWILDM followed two Special Operations Soldiers as they returned home after fighting in the longest combat campaign in American history only to face a new battle; the effects and stigma of PTSD and reintegration as a whole. But more importantly, the documentary addresses how they're overcoming these issues.
