About the Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF)
CWF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to supporting veterans with physical and invisible wounds with innovative technology and community programs that connects them to their family, friends and the world.
A tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, the Connected Warrior Foundation (CWF) was founded in Maryland in 2012. The charter of the Foundation is to fund programs and support activities that successfully empower wounded veterans, improving their quality of life by keeping them connected to their families, friends, community and the world.
It is the CWF’s intention to continue to support wounded vets by raising awareness and support through such means as technology (existing as well as innovative), events, blogs, resources and community outreach. With the generous contributions of individual donors and in partnership with Google, Inc. and Amazon.com, CWF delivers Android devices such as Kindle Fire and Nexus tablet computer reading and web devices to wounded veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, San Antonio Military Medical Center in TX and Freedom Station in San Diego, CA. The aim of the Foundation is connection—both human and technological—and the provision of much-needed support and resources.
Connected Warrior Foundation serves veterans—whether newly-injured or on the path to recovery over an extended period of time—who have suffered severe physical and/or emotional ‘invisible’ wounds (PTSD) received during the course of combat in Iraq or Afghanistan post 9/11 on behalf of the United States of America.
Operation Google Gadgets
We are partnering with Google, Inc. to ensure that every single physically wounded combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan post 9/11 receives a Google Nexus tablet device for their use.
Operation Feeks’ Fires & 7s
Established in honor of Navy SEAL Special Warfare Operator Petty Officer 1st Class Patrick Feeks who was killed in action in Afghanistan on August 16, 2012, these programs provides Kindle Fires and Nexus 7 tablet computer reading and web devices to combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan post 9/11 with invisible wounds (PTSD).
Connected Warrior/CRAB Sailing Team:
In partnership with Chesapeake Region Accessible Boating, Inc. (CRAB) through CRAB’s new Wounded Warrior Sailing Squadron initiative, CWF is forming a sailing team of wounded veterans that will compete in several regattas and clinics in 2013. The CWF Sailing Team program engages our warriors to embrace the Corinthian spirit and build their confidence through sailing. Team members, all of whom have served honorably in combat in Afghanistan or Iraq post 9/11, suffer from a wide range of injuries, both physical and emotional. The intention of the program encourages vets to overcome any sense of limitation from their injuries and incites them to regain the sense of camaraderie they experienced during their military service. Sailing is a therapeutic outlet that connects participants with nature and allows them to harness its power to achieve a cohesive goal.

Supporting Our Survivors
The loss of a spouse, under any circumstances, is a tragic and life altering experience. In addition to their loss, military surviving spouses face additional challenges. Amidst the grief that comes with a suffering a traumatic loss, surviving spouses find themselves needing to make important and immediate decisions for themselves and their families in a rapidly changing environment. For survivors of Special Operations personnel, the grieving process can be further complicated as the complete details of their loved one’s death are sometimes unavailable due to the classified nature of the mission.The military surviving spouse community, while unfortunately growing, continues to remain relatively small. New survivors may or may not know anyone else who has gone through a similar situation and who can relate to them.
Special Ops Survivors understands the healing power of not having to weather a tragedy alone.
While we cannot bring back our survivors’ loved ones, we can help ease the transition to a new life – a life that honors the legacy of their loved ones. We do this by providing access to a community of other survivors who have gone through, survived and overcome similar obstacles.
The services we provide are intended to provide practical support to survivors in various stages of the grieving and healing process as they make their way forward in their new lives.
Special Ops Survivors will continue our mission to support Special Operations families as long as the need exists.
Supporting Our Warriors
The strength of the family directly affects the ability of our Special Operations warriors to successfully carry out their critical missions. Our operators who are currently serving can take comfort in knowing that their spouses and families will be cared for should the worst occur. Secure in this knowledge, our operators can better focus on the mission at hand.
Our commitment at Special Ops Survivors is to the members of Special Operations units and to their families – without preference to race, sex, ethnicity, religion, unit or rank.
