Spread Season's Greetings with Last-Minute Giving

Do you have one of those hard-to-buy for people on your gift-giving list? That Uncle who has everything, or the Grandmother who tells you to save your money? Or, are you strapped for cash, but still want to give something meaningful? Consider giving the gift of health!

Donations to Healing Heroes Network can be made in honor of your Uncle or Grandmother. We'll tell your donation honoree all about the Heroes your gift will help. Heroes like Chad from Virginia who's getting new dental work to save his teeth from the grinding caused from his PTSD; or James from Tennessee who will start the new year receiving Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for his PTSD and chronic headaches. This holiday season, your gift can give back!

Here's how!

Another letter of support from one of our Hero families!

SSgt. Jose Pequeno began seeing an HHN Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy provider in April 2010. Jose lost the bottom two lobes of the left-side of his brain, and is known as one of the most severely wounded servicemen to come home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. To this day, Jose is unable to care for himself and requires around-the-clock care. While his outlook appears grim, HHN is determined to give this true American Hero every opportunity to regain as much function as possible.

“The treatment that Jose receives from Healing Heroes Network is fantastic and very loving,” said Nellie Bagley, Jose’s mother. “Both my son and I feel like we are welcomed with open arms with the care they provide. Healing Heroes has made a difference in our lives by their accommodating atmosphere, offers and health care. They are willing to try what others are not, and give us the time to gain progress. Healing Heroes is a wonderful network that not only opens their arms and hearts to us, but veterans of all kinds.”

From War in Mortar-Ville to a New War at Home

"Your life can be over in a second."
"You can die from standing in the wrong place."
"Why does one person make it out of there and another person doesn't?"

These are the thoughts and questions that run through Spc. Brian Taylor's head. After heading to Iraq in 2004 with the Washington State National Guard's 81st Brigade, Brian's life was forever changed. His infantry unit was assigned to provide security for an EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) team. As you can imagine, Brian lived through some terrifying experiences.

"I didn't really realize the scope of what I was doing and where I was, until we started carrying our fellow soldiers out in body bags," recalls Brian. Read More...

Veteran's Day may be only one day a year, but shouldn't we honor our Heroes every day? Each day of freedom we have, we owe to the members of our armed forces and their families.

Happy 235th Birthday USMC!

You don't look a day over 200!

Today is the 235th birthday for the United States Marine Corps...
Did you know?
During the American Revolution, a committee of the Continental Congress met to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines that would be able to fight for independence at sea, as well as on shore. With the approval of the resolution on 11/10/1775, the Continental Marines were officially formed.

Military Family month is here!

It's time to show your appreciation, gratitude, and respect for veterans, members of the armed forces, and military families. Military Family Appreciation Month honors the sacrifices of our military families. Army families of Active, Guard, Reserve, veterans, and retirees are giving back in a time of need, and sustain and support the Soldiers who defend our Nation. Whether you have a family member, a friend, a neighbor, or are a veteran yourself - it's time to think about the sacrifices our Heroes and their families make every day. You can make a difference in a Hero's life today by making a donation.

Honoring and remembering the enormous sacrifices that veterans have made, and continue to make, is a duty of every American. The courage, valor, loyalty and bravery they have shown throughout history can never be forgotten, or taken for granted. They have safe-guarded our freedoms and continue to fight for the values and beliefs Americans hold most dear - democracy, equality, liberty, and freedom. These things do not come without a price. Our armed service men and women, both past and present, are the Heroes who have upheld these precious gifts and are doing so at this very moment. You can directly help repay their sacrifice by helping them heal.

Army families are important, since the strength of our Heroes comes from the strength of their families. Our nation's Hero families are giving back in this time of need. With thousands of service members deployed, recognizing their daily sacrifices has never been more important. During the month of November, we want to showcase your family. Send us your stories, pictures and videos and tell us in your own words what it means to be an "Strong Hero Family."

For the Troops,
The Healing Heroes Network Team

Remember our Heroes This Patriot Day

Remember our Heroes...

This Saturday marks the ninth anniversary of terrorist attacks on American soil. We will pause and reflect in honor of those who died on that fateful day. We will remember how Americans responded in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in the skies over Pennsylvania. They demonstrated heroism, selflessness, compassion and courage. As we remember the events of September 11th, let's also be mindful of the contributions our military has made since then.

U.S. forces have been in Afghanistan for nine years and in Iraq for seven. As a result, thousands of our men and women have been injured. Nearly 90% of today's seriously wounded U.S. military service members are surviving. They're surviving, but are they getting the medical care they need to lead a quality life? Healing Heroes Network is here to make sure they do! Commit to a Heroe's recovery now with a gift for $25... $50... $75... $100... or more!
Be Sure to Fly "Old Glory"...

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, the U.S. was cloaked in American flags as we mourned the incredible losses. Sadly, some of those flags have disappeared. Our flag is the fabric of our country. On this day, the American flag should be flown at half staff at home, and at all U.S. government buildings. Fly the Red, White and Blue proudly.
This Patriot Day, let's not only remember the past, but also look forward to a more secure future thanks to the service of the men and women of our armed services. Most of all, let's ensure their sacrifice does not go unnoticed. Help HHN help our Heroes and make a donation today. Restoring our Heroes' health may seem like an impossible task, but together, this is Mission Possible!

For the Troops,

The Healing Heroes Network Team

The Meaning of Memorial Day

Memorial Day is much more than a three-day weekend that marks the start of summer. To many people, especially the thousands of combat veterans, Memorial Day is an important reminder of those who died in service to this country.

Those of us who are still alive can't possibly repay the sacrifice of those who died while defending us. But at the very least, we can, and we must remember them.

Tragically, more than one million men and women have died in service to this nation in wars and conflicts since 1775. Most were young and in the prime of their lives. Some were husbands, wives, fathers or mothers. Every one of them left a nation that is forever in their debt.

While Memorial Day is intended to honor our fallen, we shouldn't forget those who have pledged to make the same sacrifice if called upon - the young men and women still serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, the United States and in more than 130 foreign lands.

The "Memorial" in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many for too long. Here are a couple ideas on how to properly remember thise who have made the ultimate sacrifice:

- Visit cemeteries and place flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen Heroes
- Visit memorials
- Fly the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon
- Fly the POW/MIA Flag as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act)
- Participate in the "National Moment of Remembrance" at 3pm to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played
- Renew a pledge to aid the widows, widowers and orphans of our fallen dead, and to aid disable veterans

So on Memorial Day, on this most sacred day, we should pause to relfect on what has been given and sacrificed. Let us never forget. Freedom is not a gift. It is an earned benefit that was paid for by the blood of our Heroes. From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terrorism, the sacrifices and talent of America's fighting men and women have been nothing short of inspirational.

Who We Are

On behalf of everyone at Healing Heroes Network, and the countless injured American veterans in need of medical help, thank you for your interest! Your support today could help heal a hero tomorrow.
Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and the subsequent war on terror, thousands of members of our armed forces have been injured in the line of duty defending our freedom and protecting the United States of America. Often these men and women are unable to receive the medical treatments that would facilitate their return to a productive civilian life. While the Department of Veterans Affairs provides treatment to these troops, the scope of covered services is limited and sometimes unavailable.
That's where Healing Heroes Network steps in. As a wounded veteran charity, we provide desperately needed therapies and services not currently provided or covered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our site is designed to inform, and ignite your passion to help heal our nation's bravest protectors. Take some time to read about the veterans we are proud to support, and the services provided to them at no cost. With your interest and generosity, we can heal every returning service member wounded in combat, that needs help now.
