Founded by Debbie Lee, Marc's mom
Debbie Lee founded America’s Might Warriors, after her son Marc was the first Navy Seal to be killed in Iraq on August 2, 2006. In Marc’s Last Letter Home, he asked for friends and family to “pass on the love and kindness and precious gift of human life”. Since then, America’s Mighty Warriors has been fighting to support our troops, the fallen and their families and to work with like-minded organizations to do the same.
Our troops and their families sacrifice so much for our freedoms. We want to inspire, encourage and motivate those whose lives have been touched by war and loss. America’s Mighty Warriors focuses on two main programs to help warriors and their families get access to the support they deserve: Gold Star Respite and Got HBOT?
Additionally, America’s Mighty Warriors works hard to advocate for our troops and conducts Random Acts of Kindness (as Marc requested in his Last Letter Home) to ensure that they are acknowledged for their sacrifices.
Gold Star Respite
Through Gold Star Respite, families of the fallen are invited to stay at the Heroes Hope Home in Arizona or attend one of several retreats held through out the year. Extended families are welcome to the Heroes Hope Home so parents, grandparents and siblings can join spouses and children of the fallen for some much deserved respite, relaxation and rejuvenation.
At retreats, families have the time to reflect and relax and have some fun with other families who share a special bond because that cannot be explained. Counseling and group sessions are available for those who wish to participate.
As our troops continue the fight on multiple fronts, many are experiencing Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and associated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from combat-related blasts. More than 750,000 of our troops and families are affected and sadly, many are not getting access to the treatment they need to heal the actual brain injury! Instead, symptoms are being addressed with mediation while source of the problem goes untreated. The result, our troops are on medication for depression, anxiety, concentration, sleeplessness and pain. Individuals and families are being torn apart. Treatments are available to treat the brain injury but they are not prescribed by military doctors because they are not covered by insurance!
America’s Mighty Warriors is collaborating with treatment centers around the country and creating a new program called, Got HBOT?. HBOT stands for hyperbaric oxygen treatment. This evidence-based protocol for oxygen treatment that has been helping vets heal but it is difficult to access and is not covered by insurance. America’s Mighty Warriors is raising awareness and money to get our warriors access to this beneficial treatment and help our troops, vets and their families get their lives back after Traumatic Brain Injury.
We cannot do it alone. We need your support. Donate Now
