Support for Civilians Supporting our Military!

Welcome! This is a site for families and friends of deployed civilian contractors serving abroad in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the spouse of a retired Navy Sr. Chief and the Command Ombudsman of Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, TX, I thought getting through my husband's deployment as a civilian would be just like any other. Boy, was I wrong! In searching for support resources for families of civilian contractors, I came up empty handed and a little more depressed than I was going in. I feel like this is a great opportunity for those of us who are holding down the fort while our spouses/ family members are gone to come together, share ideas and tips, and just have an understanding ear to call upon. Please use this site to share, vent, and support! I am not a professional licensed in any financial, psychological, or legal matters. Please seek the guidance of licensed professional on any subject matter referencing one of the above. I look forward to hearing from anyone who has thoughts and comments regarding having civilian family members serving alongside our great military in the ongoing Global War on Terrorism!

Shadow Warriors Project
https://shadowwarriorsproject.org/
Shadow Warriors Project is a foundation dedicated to the support of private military security contractors, conducting paramilitary security operations in some of the world's most dangerous areas. It is the only charity of its kind. Although the private security contractor has served in the military he is considered a civilian and does not receive the same support offered to injured active military or veterans. We are here to serve the private contractor by offering financial support through heartfelt donations. By easing the load of these injured warriors it allows them to focus on healing, as an individual as well as the family unit.

We are here to support those families who are dealing with the financial hardships now facing them by lifting the burden of the load so that these families can focus on healing mind, body, and spirit.

The individuals receiving support from the Shadow Warriors Project are special operatives that were hired either through the CIA or via private security companies. These people are in need of assistance because there is no post-engagement support for them on their return to the U.S. like there is for military veterans. These operatives may have been killed or wounded, and our goal is to serve as a support system to them and/or their family. The individual financial assistance will be for medical bills, PTSD treatment, and other family therapies. We also, want to provide education to the public about who these warriors are, and support events that bring the Shadow Warriors and their family members together for events and fundraisers.
