  • Mentor struggling Veterans in the Veteran Treatment Court of Porter County, Indiana
  • Support families and survivors of the Sapper 6—the six members of the Valparaiso-based Indiana National Guard’s 713th Combat Engineers killed in action while deployed to Afghanistan in 2012
  • Provide scholarships for the children of our post-911 military casualties through the Folds of Honor Foundation
