Programs

 


Your Local Chapter is Active!
A substantial part of your corporate member contribution stays within the local chapter to financially support activities and events locally.

Wounded Warrior Fund Grant Program

Established in the late 1980's, this fund has a long tradition of providing much needed financial support to the Region's Service and family members. Grant requests are received through the Chain of Command and approved by the Region's community Support Organizations usually within 24 hours. Over the past 5 years, more than $75,000 in grants has been distributed in a time of need.

Warriors In Town program

WIT is an extension of the Wounded Warrior Fund and provides a FREE night out for FLW Wounded Warriors and their families. In partnership with the Armed Service YMCA transportation is provided to area communities for a night on the town. In addition, many trips have been coordinated for Wounded Warriors within the region (Lake of the Ozarks, Branson hunting trip, Branson Belle, St Louis Cardinal's baseball game, and Spring Training trip to Florida.)

Scholarship Program

The Chapter awards $2,000 annually to deserving Service Members or Service Member dependents.

Community Picnics

The Chapter hosts picnics in local communities as a way of connecting business, community and political leaders to FLW. These events are well attended by FLW command.

BIG AUSA Annual Meeting Washington DC

The Chapter funds all costs for up to 20 distinguished FLW Soldiers. In many cases, this is the 1st time these Soldiers have been to our Nation's Capital. The trip includes a breakfast and office call with our US Senator's. This is a life changing event for these young warriors.

Distinguished Soldier Awards

The Chapter recognizes and presents awards to all Brigades on FLW.

Lobbying Political Leaders

Understanding that those in uniform cannot lobby for themselves, the Chapter is a constant "Voice for the Soldier" to all elected officials.
