Operation Comfort Warriors
September  2018

Operation comfort Warriors (OCW) is a program dedicated to meeting the needs of wounded, injured, and ill military personnel by providing recreational, rehabilitative/therapeutic and comfort items not usually provided by the government.

OCW also provides wounded warriors items that offer some entertainment and distraction and possibly some enjoyment during their recovery. OCW also provides outings such as dinners, sporting events and trips to amusement parks for the service person and their family. Family is always invited to join their service member as part of the event.

100% of all donation go to the program. All overhead costs related to administration and marketing of the program are paid by the general fund of The American Legion.

OCW serves wounded warriors in federal DoD and VA medical facilities, clinics and hospitals, and wounded warrior regiments, battalions and units, and soldier and family assistance centers.

OCW continues to provide assistance to wounded warriors across the nation with individual grants. OCW is successful because of the many individuals, American Legion posts, American Legion Auxiliary units, and Sons of The American Legion squadrons have helped raise funds and participate in the events.

OCW is part of The American Legion Charities and is a 501 (c) 3.

Tax-deductible donations can be mailed to: Operation Comfort Warriors, The American Legion, P.O. Box 361656, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46236
