The National Military Family Association has been the leading 501(c)3 charity helping military families of all ranks and Service branches. Our network of more than 1 million military family members is among the largest in the U.S.
We began in 1969 with a handful of wives who convinced Congress that military widows should be supported financially by the Nation. The military has changed dramatically in those 40 years, and with it, the lives of its families. Unlike previous wars, when most service members were single draftees, half of today’s volunteer military is married with more than 1,600,000 children. We work hard to fix the unique challenges these families face – especially in wartime.
Until the last service members return home, their wounds are healed, and their families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope Americans will keep them in their thoughts and continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
