Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund
On May 18, 2004, a small group of concerned Marine Corps spouses founded the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund to provide financial grants and other assistance to the Marines, sailors, and families of those injured serving our nation. In the summer of 2004, General Alfred M. Gray, the 29th Commandant of the Marine Corps, two retired general officers, and a retired sergeant major joined them. The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund has had over 1,400 cases and given more than $2.7 million in grants to our wounded heroes and their families.
Battle-injured warriors return home after being stabilized at military hospitals in Germany. Upon arrival, critical care is provided at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Depending on the severity of the injuries, continued hospitalization occurs at other hospitals located throughout America. Hospital stays can extend for months and rehabilitative care for years.
Loved ones travel great distances at a moment’s notice to be at the bedside of their wounded service member. Family members take leave from their jobs, often without pay. They also incur additional expenses — lodging, travel, food — while trying to meet obligations at home. It can become difficult for families to make ends meet while helping their Marine recover. Few are prepared for the expense.
