Military Recovery Fund: A Program of the Boot Campaign
The Military Recovery Fund is a program administered by the Boot Campaign to ensure that those who serve in the U.S. Military have the necessary resources in a time of need. Support for veterans, active duty service members, and their families can be provided through a variety of initiatives that include housing, job placement, wellness, urgent assistance and family support efforts.
Since the troop surge in Afghanistan in late 2009 severe injuries to Marines has more than doubled due to the foot patrol initiative to eradicate roadside bombs. The average age of a soldier injured is 22, leaving them with long-term and significant abdominal injuries, loss of limbs and brain injuries. In fact,over the course of ten years and two military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan more than 13,000 Marines have come home with injuries.
Why We Do This
As of 6/26/2012:
- Operation Iraqi Freedom 8,626 Marines sustained injury
- Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) 4,533 Marines sustained injury
