Texas Fallen Soldiers Project
Our mission is to honor, respect and forever memorialize the soldiers who have sacrificed their lives protecting our freedom during active military service by providing, at no cost to their family, an original portrait of their fallen soldier that fully captures their appearance and personality. Our desire is to make a profound and lasting impact on the family while also providing a place where they can spend time with their soldier when they need them most. Our goal is to comfort and serve as many Gold Star families as possible through our portraits. (See documentary)

A nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving U.S. and allied war veterans ... with a primary mission to fund trips for veterans to return to their former battlefields. These journeys provide the veteran an opportunity to achieve some measure of closure on their war experience, to share the gratitude of liberated peoples, and to educate others on their individual experiences in a broader historical context. These courageous groups of veterans include Generations of men and women who fought in World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Their dedication and bravery must never be forgotten, nor should the value of their deeds be allowed to disappear into the annals of history.
The Independence Fund
A 501(C)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization, whose Board of Directors is comprised entirely of combat veterans, with a mission to provide the tools, therapies and guidance that those veterans severely injured in the War on Terror are otherwise not receiving. Its special focus is on a unique class of survivors comprised of men and women who, because of the phenomenal advances in battlefield medicine, are kept alive with wounds that in previous conflicts would have been non-survivable. Often times, the damage inflicted is multi-faceted and to an extent in which full recovery is not feasible. They are the “ultra” severely injured.
