Operation Comfort Warriors (OCW) illustrates The American Legion’s commitment to wounded, injured and ill military service members and veterans. OCW supplements the high-quality care provided at Department of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facilities and transition units by providing “non-essential” items typically not included as a budget line on government spreadsheets – items that play important roles in the rehabilitation and quality of life for wounded warriors. Items most commonly sought are medically related to adaptive sports, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and therapeutic recreation, or to help a wounded warrior transition back to their community. OCW is not a program designed to provide financial assistance with rent or mortgage, utilities, vehicles or past due bills.
The American Legion will contact you using the information you provide. Please be sure to include the area code for phone numbers and an email address if possible.
