     This Foundation  helps the spouses and children of our wounded military and civilian heroes cope with this devastating kind of family disaster which is happening all too often in light of the wartime and terrorist environment that is with us today! We provide retraining for the spouses that want and/or need it, scholarship assistance for the spouses and children, financial assistance and help in every way that we can to help preserve family unity and happiness! Pre-school and grades 1-12 are especially the concentration! All too often the families are the “forgotten few” who in reality sacrifice daily as their spouses defend our freedoms and security. As many of you know firsthand; and others of you can certainly imagine the toll it takes on that family when the dad or mom is wounded seriously or worse. PLEASE PAUSE, THINK & SPONSOR THIS CAUSE. HELP THE CHILDREN

 Your sponsorship is crucial to the ongoing survivorship and success of this new foundation. Not to be confused with the Wounded Warrior Project, this Foundation “THE WOUNDED WARRIOR FAMILY FOUNDATION” is a new foundation taking root in Alabama where there are several military bases where wounded warriors live. We are hopeful of working with The Wounded Warrior DOD offices at major bases such as Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville and Ft. Rucker in Dothan as starters with plans to expand throughout the State of Alabama and adjacent states; and the nationally since this is, in fact, a national outreach with beneficiaries in all States requiring assistance. This Foundation strives to help the spouses and children of our killed or seriously wounded military and civilian heroes who have a very hard and devastating time trying to cope with these family problems. They need encouragement, hope, help, and financial integration to advance their family unity and recovery from these terrible consequences of war.


Insure that every spouse has access to education and retraining necessary to provide family unity, better financial stability and happiness much less attempting to make right the tremendous apprehension and fear that encompasses them.

This organization is complete BS. I am a 100 percent disabled veteran and was asking for help that I extremely needed and was completely denied by the Lt Col and embarrassed. He had the nerve to email me and say "I cant see how you cant make ends meet, as a 100 percent disabled vet you should be making 3000 a month. Needless to say he did not help out my family. With that 3000 a month I have to take care of my family, pay my mortgage, along with any other bills, and pay for all of my families and my own medical bills. Thank you Lt Col Doane. If you cant help a completely disabled OIF OEF veteran Purple Heart Recipient and his family when they are in need, I'm curious what your Foundation actually spends its money on.

I met Lt. Col. Doane at the Maxwell BX and he told me about his program. I told him that I was a disabled veteran and that I served prior to 9/11 and he approved my application to make my kitchen handicap accessible. He sent an out of work math teacher and the teachers girlfriend to my home to work on the kitchen sink. The math teacher removed the kitchen sink plumbing, pipes, electric wiring (left hot and exposed) from the sink disposal and pulled apart my cabinets. This was in June, 2012. Something went very wrong and the couple left, with $100 cash of my money for supplies, which were returned to the math teacher, I have pictures of what I returned. It is now November 8, 2013 and I still don't have a working kitchen sink, cabinets or electrics. I attempted many times to get this problem resolved but to date is has not been. My last communication from Lt. Col. Doane was that I was never really supposed to have been helped by his program. To say I am a client served is an understatement. I now not only have to take showers in the backyard with a hose, because my wheelchair no longer fits in my bathroom, but I also have to wash dishes on the patio, too. I have a microwave oven and an extension cord for the fridge. Being a disabled veteran really has hit an all time low.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put them out of business.

I am a wounded warrior from Fort Hood, TX who has had a lot of personal family issues in the last year, WWFF has been so gracious to me and my family by helping everytime I have asked. Tom Doane the founder and president is a gentle man with genuine love for wounded warriors and all soldiers. He showsw his patriotism everyday by helping the most critically injured warriors from the last ten years of war. If any one out there is looking for a non profit to donate to this is the one, all the money that is given goes directly to soldiers to help with all sorts of issues, everything from getting them medical procedures they can't afford, to helping with financial assistance in times crisis. Thanks so much Wounded Warrior Family Foundation, and especially Tom you guys are true angels for soldiers.
