Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
www.fallenheroesfund.org - An effort dedicated to honoring and supporting the heroes who serve in defense of our country and their families: Americaís men and women in uniform know that at any time they may be called upon to put themselves in harmís way to protect our nation and its values. The years since the cowardly attacks of September 11, 2001 have seen our nation engaged in two wars. The thousands of deaths and countless injuries incurred by our military have clearly driven home the meaning of sacrifice.
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund exists to help those who have made these sacrifices. We have made grants to the families of those who have been lost. We have built an advanced rehabilitation center to care for those with amputation and severe burn injuries. And we have most recently constructed what will be our nationís foremost facility for treating servicemembers and veterans who suffer from traumatic brain injury. These efforts are part of the way that our nation can pay back the debt we owe to those who stand in our defense.
