The Wounded In Action Family Foundation

The Wounded In Action Family Foundation (WIAFF), creates the opportunity for Wounded In Action families to successfully transition from a military hospital environment back into civilian society. Focus is on equipping the WIA family to become self supporting. It is not lifetime aid or charity. The WIAFF executive staff, board of directors, and board of advisors include distinguished top retired military officers, business professionals, and active clergy.

The WIAFF salutes all our “Wounded Warriors Families” and wants to make sure they are given every opportunity to return home and experience the American Dream for sacrificing so much for our country. We will never leave them behind … Never.

Our transition program is specifically designed to render the following types of support for discharged WIA patients and their families:

•Access to housing and sustenance in the area chosen by the family.

•Find employment to establish a sound financial basis for family fiscal independence.

•Arrange school enrollment or job training to support the educational needs of all family members.

• Assure availability of functioning medical support and transportation.

•Assist in locating government and other available support programs.

•Coordinate with a religious organization or other support groups to establish and implement family transition success criteria

Our goal is to provide PRESENTATION CANES

to a select group of Post 9-11 Veterans who have received some

manner of leg disability from combat related actions.

The Presentation Canes are based upon an eagle head design,

personalized for the veteran. When possible and or practical, canes

are to be carved and presented by participants from the same state

as the veteran.

In January 2004, while watching an ABC News about our wounded

post 9-11 Veterans, I realized that there was, perhaps, a little

something that I, a woodcarver and cane maker, could do to indicate

to these young people our support and to bring some measure of

honor to them. Since many of the Veterans presented on the ABC

segment displayed leg wounds and amputations and would most

likely be using a cane at some time, I thought that we could carve

symbolic “Presentation” canes - not as an everyday use object -

but as an artistic representation of our support and respect.

It’s in the nature of Military and Veterans to step up.

So we did! The kind of people who volunteer to serve

their country, the ones who put their nation first and

their own lives second, are the kind of people we need

to honor every day. Not just on Memorial Day, Veteran’s

Day and the Fourth of July, but every day. Through The

Veteran Tickets Foundation, now those who care about

our Military and Veterans have a way to give back.

Every day, in every city, there are events with empty seats

that could be filled by those who serve or served. More

than that, many event tickets are simply unaffordable for

average people. We believe the events that bring

Americans together in the spirit of celebration, competition

and camaraderie—those all-American moments are the

times we need welcome and acknowledge our Veterans.

Colonial Flag Foundation develops and implements many programs to promote

patriotism, a sense of civic duty and honor for those who serve our country. Our

programs encourage volunteerism and unity, generate awareness and raise funds for

issues in support of civic, service and other nonprofit organizations, and create an

environment that helps to heal, honor, celebrate and educate.

Colonial Flag Foundation was organized in 2003 shortly after the first Healing Field

display was orchestrated by Paul Swenson, President of Colonial Flag in Sandy, Utah.

That first event was organized as a way to visualize the sheer enormity of

human loss that occurred in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It became

a personal gesture of support, a tangible expression of mourning, and a very real healing experience. Through Colonial Flag Foundation communities come together, visitors

are educated and uplifted; and most importantly, individual hearts are healed.
