Warrior Reunion Foundation supports combat veterans in overcoming the challenges of post-military transition by reconnecting those who served together overseas. We challenge stigma through shared experience, rebuilding essential peer support networks that enable our veterans to live with meaning, purpose and positive impact in their communities.
Maintaining connection to our battle buddies is the key to combating the isolation our warriors feel in their transition to civilian life.
And we’re just getting started. Demand for our support has never been higher, and the need for connection has never been more urgent.
96% of post-reunion survey respondents said that attending their reunion “strengthened their social connections with their military family.”
What’s at Stake?
America’s warriors share an unbreakable bond. Formed in the cauldron of combat, the connection between those who have fought our nation’s wars endures long after the fields of battle fall silent. But as our veterans transition to life after service they often find themselves separated from their most important resource: each other. Warrior Reunion Foundation solves this problem. Our reunions help warriors thrive in life after service by building peer support networks one unit at a time.
How We Support
We train together. We fight together. We cannot successfully transition alone. Our program connects combat veterans with the only population that can offer real “peer support” – the “battle buddies” they served with in combat. Our unique model eliminates the most common barriers to engagement by mobilizing the unparalleled trust of personal relationships at the small unit level, while covering all costs associated with participation
You Can Help
“Thank you for your service” should mean more than a handshake or a yellow ribbon. By partnering with our team your family, club, organization, company or community can help sponsor a reunion to reconnect a unit that has fought for our nation. We connect you directly with a unit planning a reunion, mobilizing grass-roots support to help them realize their reunion vision. Through shared experience we build lasting relationships between our veterans and communities across America.

When James Ferguson came home in 2010 after serving for nearly eight months in Afghanistan, that chapter of his life remained painfully incomplete. Reuniting with his unit five years later, however, changed his life, and today Ferguson leads the Warrior Reunion Foundation, which has so far reconnected combat veterans at seven gatherings around the country.
