MISSION & HISTORY
The mission of the Brothers In Arms Foundation is to be the premier nonprofit organization supporting the Marine Special Operations Community (encompassing MARSOC, Marine Force Reconnaissance Companies and Reconnaissance Battalions). We “fill the gap” by providing "outside the box" financial and logistical assistance to wounded and fallen Special Operations Marines, and their families.
Brothers In Arms Foundation was founded in 2009 and is a volunteer and veteran operated nonprofit organization. We provide financial and logistical support to disabled veterans, active duty, and immediate family members of Marines & FMF Corpsman who have been critically wounded or fallen while serving within the Special Operations Community of The United States Marine Corps. Originally established to provide immediate support to 4 wounded MARSOC Marines and their families after they sustained near fatal injuries in Afghanistan in 2009, we now support multiple active duty Marines, Corpsman and veterans throughout the country.
Brothers In Arms provides assistance with travel, relocation, medical needs and childcare not covered by military or related insurance. We also support the modification of homes to better facilitate the needs of disabled veterans and active duty servicemen. Our current major campaign is "The Schoolhouse". In addition to family specific programs, we also assist wounded Special Operations Marines & Corpsman in the following ways:
- Donate airfare, food/lodging and transportation to family members visiting wounded Marines in rehabilitation hospitals throughout the United States
- Provide travel assistance to family members of Fallen Marines
- Purchase medical supplies for wounded Marines recovering at home
- Donate money to special projects supporting Marines
- Donate money to families needing assistance with relocation due to a family member in a rehabilitation hospital
- Relocation assistance not covered by military
- Childcare assistance during relocation
- Home modifications assistance for Marines disabled in the line of duty
