“It’s our duty to serve those who serve us.”

Chris Kyle - Guardian for Heroes Founder

George Chmiel

has finished his run across America!

His mission is to pay homage to our Veterans and drive awareness of the serious issues they face upon returning home from the battlefield. These are our Heroes – the protectors and providers of our freedom – and it is our responsibility as Americans to honor their sacrifices by ensuring they have the proper medical care and necessary resources after experiencing the horrors of war.

Guardian for Heroes Foundation

is helping to treat the invisible wounds of war

American Sniper Chris Kyle's Guardian for Heroes Foundation provides free, in-home fitness equipment, facilitation of donated health club memberships, individualized programs, personal training and life coaching to in-need veterans with disabilities, Gold Star families and those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) from combat deployment.

Paralyzed Veterans of America

is changing lives and building brighter futures for our seriously injured heroes

For 70 years, Paralyzed Veterans of America has been empowering brave men and women with what they need to achieve the things they fought for: freedom and independence.

The organization was founded by a band of service members who came home from World War II with a spinal cord injury.

They returned to a grateful nation, but also to a world with few solutions to the challenges they faced. They made a decision not just to live, but to live with dignity as contributors to society. They created Paralyzed Veterans of America, an organization dedicated to veterans service, medical research and civil rights for people with disabilities.

“Because of their love & sacrifice, Americans have the ability to live freely, without fear and chase their dreams every single day. That is a tremendous gift, a gift most of the world doesn’t possess. For that I am grateful. For that I owe.”
