Mission: The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund was founded, October 23, 2003 to help support surviving U.S. Military children who have lost a parent in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars by providing them with College Grants. Our College Grant Program has been expanded to include both U.S. Military children and spouses who have either lost a loved one as a result of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars or have a severely disabled parent or spouse who was injured during a deployment to either war. Our second objective is to help the surviving members of these families with financial assistance. Our goal is to award applicants of U.S. Military families that have children under the age of 18, and who are in need of assistance with housing, repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school supplies and other expenses deemed necessary in order to provide them with some support and helpalleviate their need.

Results: We have provided assistance to more than 700 children within our military community and hundreds of severely disabled/wounded veterans with our college, financial, morale, health and well-being programs. Our programs are possible only through the gracious giving of others, along with their help we have provided over 3,805,000.00 to our wonderful military families.

Programs: Awarded educational scholarships and financial assistance grants to surviving family members of fallen soldiers of the gulf, iraq, and afghanistan wars and administered these grant programs as well to severely disabled veterans who served in either of the wars listed above. Helped the surviving dependents of these families with financial assistance during their time of hardship. Their goal is to help these children (18 yrs of age or younger) whom are in need of housing, home repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school and sports team equipment and supplies. Also, other expenses deemed necessary during their time of need.

This foundation is very amazing! I’ve personally never been involved in a foundation that has done so much for the veteran community. Miss Becky Campbell deeply and truly cares about us! She has given her life to make so many great things happen for great people. I am beyond honored to help her with this passion and also honored to call her my friend! If I could I would work side by side with her every day to help her honor her son. To little David: thanks for all your sacrifices brother. They will never be forgotten or go unnoticed. God bless Children of fallen soldiers relief fund

This year, CFSRF went above and beyond for the Battle of Fallujah veterans. Because of CFSRF, approximately 30 Marines and Corpsman were able to get together to build on the brotherhood they established in battle 14 years ago.

Becky's phone is always on to answer a call from a veteran battling the demons that have taken too many of our lives. Her understanding and willingness to open her heart to vets has, without question, saved lives.

As a married couple we have been through a lot of unplanned issues in life we were pretty much on a downwards spiral becoming homeless from a result of losing our home and car. Veterans and their families need more help and less being judged harshly, by the help of this organization my husband and I have a really nice home that we are truly blessed with. The help and support is what we needed to get back on our feet and a second chance to have a real life together. Thank you for your help without it we could have never achieved it.

As a surviving widow, I have had some downs. I recently moved to another state to better myself and my children’s lives. As most of you know, moving is expensive. The Children Of Fallen Soldiers Reliefs Fund, was right there when I needed help. They were able to provide groceries when I needed it. Thank you to all who have helped fill our bellies.

Miss Becky,

3 years ago, I was in the dumps. I had no money, no hope, and it felt like no future. I had fallen in with a group of veteran hucksters who suckered me. It was partially my own fault but it drained my savings after a couple years.
Destitute, living in my truck, and alone, you called me at the behest of some of members of my former unit. You called and offered me money, which I turned down as I had a job, albeit not one that paid much. The most important thing you offered me was a solution. You asked if I had thought about going back to school. I had always wanted to be a lawyer but never thought I could do it. But, your encouragement inspired me to at least try.
I’m pleased to share with you this: I am now in my final semester of my bachelor’s program where I’ll be graduating with a 4.0 GPA. I have also been accepted into Saint Louis University School of Law and will be starting in August of with year with full funding from the VA.
The whole journey began with your kind words and pragmatic approach to helping me find a solution to my problem. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and am not exaggerating when I say that you very well saved my life by helping me see past my current situation and realize what is possible.

Semper Fidelis
