Our Military Kids
Our Military Kids serves with the mission to recognize and support children of deployed military personnel with the National Guard and Reserve Forces, as well as children of those recovering from injuries sustained in service to our nation. The program covers fees for military children to participate in extracurricular activities that help alleviate the stress and anxiety from knowing a parent is in harm’s way or watching a parent endure lengthy medical treatment.

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) offers compassionate care to all those grieving the loss of a military loved one. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24/7 through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Studies show that if you’ve served in the military — any branch, any war, or even if you served in a time of peace — you have a much higher risk of dying from it than if you were not in the military.
