In our first three years, we provided 14 reunions reconnecting over 650 combat veterans and Gold Star Families. Each completed mission represents the hard work of unit planning committees, partnered with our staff, to create a unique reunion experience that reconnects brothers in arms and rekindles the warrior spirit that bonds all of us!
The impact of COVID-19 touched all of us, and like you we had to re-structure and pivot from our original plans. What we found during this time of forced separation is that the bonds created by our reunions remain strong and have been an essential source of support to the combat veterans we serve. During 2020, WRF provided virtual reunions via Zoom reconnecting 156 combat veterans and Gold Star Families. We also sponsored 'Squad Meals' where small groups of unit members who live near each other could get together and share a meal on us. We reunited 136 combat veterans and Gold Star Family members with this program.
