Mission: Us for Warriors Foundation or "Us4Warriors" is a California Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to promote the social welfare of the troops and veterans community. “Everything we do helps veterans and their families.” That simple statement is clear, but also full of energy, excitement, hard work, determination and proven results that we apply to the fullest extent. We believe our own history of military and veteran related service and proven commitment to others every day gives those simple, eight words the most effective and resourceful meaning imaginable. Through our Us for Warriors supporting programs, helping hand deeds, inspiring events and advocacy, we believe that the key to making lives of fellow veterans better is to focus on the "whole veteran" and find ways to engage a community to fill the gaps and make a difference to enrich the lives of veterans and their families. Everything we do helps veterans and their families. The footprint we leave behind is not just imprints from strong boots, but also strong lives.

Target demographics: the troops, veterans and their families

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 2500 military, veterans and their families

Geographic areas served: San Diego, CA

Programs: Warrior Volunteer Force, Life Armor Alliance, Liberty Pass Program and others that enrich the lives and support those in need. Activities like Food4Warriors, Wheelchairs4Warriors and others provide food and basic needs assistance.

Us for Warriors is a foundation built around serving people. As veterans, they know the struggles of military life both while on active duty and after. They strive to make life for military and their families a little better every day.

Us for Warriors is involved in all aspects of improving the lives of active duty service members, veterans and their families. I believe the only way that they could improve is to expand and get the information about what it is they do, out to more people!

As a Board member with US4WARRIORS, I strive to emphasize and repeat the Greatest Generation's esprit de corps from WWII as an unparalleled example of sacrifice and effort for our country at every possible level from the military defending our freedoms to the true spirit, ingenuity and untiring support at the Homefront by all our citizens.

As a combat veteran in Vietnam and recording the era as a Navy photographer, I became locked into a profession that is a visual communications bonanza. Wanting to support a veteran's cause I help support and document the efforts behind one of the finest service groups and charity for many of our needy citizens; Us4Warriors.

It is important to document our place in life as we did over 75 years ago. The generosity of the group has always amazed me reflecting the American spirit of our military, volunteers, citizen soldiers and of course our veterans helping to help others in times of need.

I have been observing the Us4Warrors Foundation for several years now seeing them active in the community mobilizing volunteers for events like "Stand Down" and addressing food insecurity among Military & Veteran Families. After having the opportunity of working along side the Us4Warriors Foundation one year at a back-to-school event, I was hooked! Energized and inspired by their dedicated "Warrior Volunteer Force" and the active "Board of Doers", I joined the Team! I encourage any and all, both Military/Veteran and Community Members alike to join us in service and support!

I have worked with many non-profit groups in very senior/board positions. Working with US4Warriors is one of the best use of my time and money. They serve where others don’t, they work at the grass roots level to give those who served and are still serving relief where others cannot. Their board serves work no pay and often give out of their own pockets and each one of them is a Veteran serving from Vietnam to present day. I thank God for such a great group.

I gave money to this organization and I am very happy that I did. So many organizations out there with claims of doing stuff, but these guys really do a lot. I like to support good organizations. When I hear of a group, I like to check them out to see if they do all that they claim. These guys are pretty humble, I believe, because they share a little bit and then when you investigate, they do a lot! Really impressed with their programs and the way they treat people. I have donated more than once and proud each time! Thanks, Us4Warriors!

US4Warriors, although small and 100% volunteer-based, utilizes its resources and funding to its maximum potential. It does this through its different programs, which include food for warriors, wheelchairs for warriors, combat 2 comedy and advocating for veteran owned businesses, just to name a few. Us4Warriors thinks of only Veterans, active duty and their families and never themselves with every mission they accomplish. They also have great events that put every dollar toward helping the military community.
