Let us not forget the children of fallen soldiers in Palm Beach County and nationwide.  Never forget the sacrifices made, those whose lives were lost in the name of Freedom, and the hearts that bleed today and every day.  The image here is at Arlington National Cemetary, photograph courstesy of Mike Lynaugh. United States Army Chaplain (LTC) Harry A.

The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization founded in October 2003 to help military children and of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It was founded to help support surviving U.S. Military children who have lost a parent in the Afghanistan or Iraq wars by providing them with College Grants.

The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund College Grant Program has been expanded to include both U.S. Military children and spouses who have either lost a loved one because of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars or have a severely disabled parent or spouse who was injured during a deployment to either war. The second objective is to help the surviving members of these families with financial assistance.

The objective is to award applicants of U.S. Military families that have children under the age of 18, and who need assistance with housing, repairs, utilities, medical expenses, groceries, clothing, school supplies and other expenses deemed necessary to provide them with some support and help alleviate their need.

The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund have provided aid to more than 1000 children within the military community and hundreds of severely disabled/wounded veterans with the college, financial, morale, health, and well-being programs. The Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund programs are possible ONLY through the gracious giving of others, along with the help of military programs. U.S. Military veteran families in the programs provide emotional, educational, financial, children's enrichment, health & well-being and morale support for families affected war.
