The Warrior Reunion Foundation provides all-inclusive reunion experiences to reconnect units deployed to a combat theater together.

 

In May of 2010 the Marines of India Battery 3/12 deployed to the volatile Kajaki district of Helmand Province, Afghanistan. For the next 7 months they would be involved in daily contact with a well entrenched enemy force, while securing the critical infrastructure of the Kajaki Dam. With over 25% of the unit wounded and 5 Killed in Action, the men prevailed in the toughest fight of their lives together. Their deployment bonded them as family - brothers in arms - who would forever share a commitment to each other.
In the years that followed many found themselves in a new fight: the fight to find their next mission in post-military life. The unit needed to face that challenge like they had all others: together. Five years after their return from combat India Battery renewed their commitment to each other. On Memorial Day Weekend 2015, the Marines of India Battery reunited, joined by the Gold Star families of those they lost. Together with a community that rose up to support them the Marines celebrated their history, honored their fallen, and connected with actionable resources to support each other.
Out of that life-changing and life-saving event the Warrior Reunion Foundation was born. Our team's mission is to ensure every unit has this same opportunity to reconnect. We leverage our experience, partnerships and resources to deliver unparalleled, all-inclusive unit reunion events that enable warriors to reunite, remember and recover together.
