Reconnecting America’s Warriors
Every combat veteran deserves the opportunity to reunite, remember, and renew the bond formed in service to country, together. WRF is a 501c3 nonprofit built by combat veterans and run by veterans who are passionate about helping our brothers and sisters in arms as they continue to navigate civilian life.
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.
94% of post-reunion survey respondents said that attending their reunion “strengthened their social connections with their military family.”

Their reunion was made possible by the Warrior Reunion Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings combat veterans back together, often in scenic places like Camp Rotary, in the Little Belt Mountains.

James Ferguson would say that the creation of his organization, Warrior Reunion Foundation, all happened by accident, but many of the best things tend to happen that way. During his six years of service as a Marine Officer (2013-2017), Ferguson completed a combat deployment to Afghanistan in 2010 where he led a unit of Marines in the Kajaki region of Helmand Province.
