The Warriors We Serve

National Medal of Honor Day is observed every year on March 25. The Medal of Honor and is awarded to those who have distinguished themselves “conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity” above and beyond the call of duty. The President, in the name of Congress, has awarded more than 3,400 Medals of Honor to our nation's bravest Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen since 1861. To all Medal of Honor recipients, past and present, Warrior Foundation Freedom Station salutes you!

Warriors

To our Warrior Foundation Freedom Station family, I hope you and your families are healthy, safe and well as the nation grapples with the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19. The foundation is monitoring the situation daily and making the necessary adjustments to ensure we follow official government guidance and take necessary precautions to protect those who matter most to us, including staff, volunteers, partners, and the warriors we serve. Warrior Foundation Freedom Station’s operations remain uninterrupted, and we are fully equipped to continue running programs for our ill and injured service members. To limit public gatherings at this time, the majority of our near-term events and fundraisers have been canceled or postponed indefinitely. We anticipate these fundraisers will be rescheduled once it’s determined that COVID-19 no longer presents a public health risk. Event updates will be posted on our web site at www.warriorfoundation.org. If you hold a volunteer badge for the local military bases, please note they will not be honored at this time, in an effort to support disease-containment operations. Access is currently restricted to mission-essential personnel. The health and wellness of our team, and the military heroes we serve, remains top priority during this challenging time. Thank you for all you do for Warrior Foundation Freedom Station. Sincerely, Sandy Lehmkuhler CEO and Founder Warrior Foundation Freedom Station

March 13 is National K9 Veterans Day, set aside to honor the service and sacrifices of American military and working dogs. On March 13, 1942, the Army began training for its new "K-9 Corps," according to American Humane, marking the first time that dogs were officially a part of the U.S. Armed Forces. Today's military dogs are heroes in their military units, saving lives and playing key roles in some of the most important missions in American history.
