America's Child was established for the sole purpose of providing college education and welfare assistance to every child whose military parent gave their life to protect us from the horrors they faced on a daily basis. We are committed to providing assistance to the surviving children of our military heroes who have already given their lives in patriotic service to their country fighting our nation's war against terrorism as part of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and the Philippines, Operation Iraqi Freedom or future conflicts.
More than 6,800 military personnel have died fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom; nearly 75 percent of them were under the age of 30. Our young beneficiaries are their children.
In addition to the assistance America's Child provides, we also make available to the parent/guardian information on other funds and charities that may be of benefit to them, as well as referrals to service providers.
Thank you for your continued support of the children of our American Heroes. Please know we are personally working with each family, with care and compassion. And we will continue to do so.
