SimVentions: Proud Sponsor of the Families of the Wounded Dinner

SimVentions was honored to be a sponsor of the Families of the Wounded Fund’s 7th Annual Reception and Dinner honoring wounded veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan and their families. We were humbled by the stories of these heroes. Keynote Speaker, John F. Kelly, General United States Marine Corps Commander, U.S. Southern Command delivered a powerful and heartfelt talk that left those of us in attendance applauding his leadership.

The mission of the Families of the Wounded is to provide financial resources in support of family members/caregivers of military service men and women who have either been wounded in combat operations or injured as the result of line-of-duty activities in support of combat operations. This assistance is available while these patients are receiving prescribed medical treatment.

100% of funds donated and the net proceeds of fund raising events are distributed to the families of the wounded. These Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have a long and very difficult road ahead. Most are young, and their lives and the lives of their families have been forever changed. Regardless of their gender, race, or ethnic heritage, these wounded American heroes and their families clearly understand the high cost of freedom.

SimVentions has been a proud sponsor of this event for three years. For more information, visit: http://www.familiesofthewoundedfund.org/default.asp
