The Combat Wounded Coalition’s mission is to optimize the potential of combat-wounded warriors by mitigating the effects of trauma, expanding personal capabilities, and inspiring our heroes to find individual, unique purpose to create the life they want. Mission objectives are achieved through programs and opportunities that improve confidence, provide networking and direction, and offer balance and tranquility.
We partner and provide connections to organizations which offer excellent resources, programs and proven strategies for success. Another CWC mission is to provide clothing modifications and a unique line of apparel available only to Purple Heart recipients and families of the fallen. We also honor families of the fallen with opportunities to participate in events with our heroes.
Who We Serve
The Combat Wounded Coalition provides program services to Combat Wounded Warriors who have been awarded the Purple Heart. Primary focus is on Purple Heart Recipients from 9/11 forward but will support all living Purple Heart Recipients. If resources are available, The Combat Wounded Coalition will provide program services to wounded warriors injured training for war. The CWC does not provide services to service members injured in training exercises not preparing for combat operations, injured outside of normal military duties, or sickness not directly linked to combat operations.
Families of the Fallen
The Combat Wounded Coalition’s Families of the Fallen Program, as part of its mission, is committed to providing support to families of service members killed during combat operations or during hostilities against the United States, and to families of service members who died from complications from injuries received during combat operations, or during hostilities against the United States, to include accidents and exposures. In addition, we provide support for families of service members killed during training missions in preparation for combat operations, and families of service members lost to suicide, due to post traumatic stress after service in DOD-identified combat theaters.
Due to the focused scope of our mission we do not have the resources to support families of service members who died as result of natural death, crime, routine military training, accidents, illness or suicide not directly linked to combat experience. The CWC is currently developing our programs to support Families of the Fallen. If you are a family of the fallen, meet our criteria above, and are interested in learning more about programs the Combat Wounded Coalition is currently developing please contact us.
