My Hero Doesn't Wear A Cape

A friend has published a wonderful children's book titled "My Hero Doesn't Wear a Cape" by Gloria Canada.  I highly recommend it for those military family's with children or any family with children.  It is quite touching and the artwork is beautiful.  You will be able to order it online soon, but in the meantime if you'd like to order a copy, please contact Terry Baily at Innovo Publishing, 1.888.546.2111 or their website: www.innovopublishing.com

After Action Report (AAR) - Adopt A Warrior Family For Christmas program

What an unbelievable program this was!  Our first Christmas program to support Warrior families for Christmas went far beyond our expectations. 

We initially focused on "adopting" 4 families by soliciting donations from our Corporate partners and friends.  Our goal was to collect $2000.00.  We far exceeded our goal through the generocity of our partners and friends, and were able to support 57 military and veteran families.

Our full report is posted and we look forward to expanding the program next year.  Click HERE for the report.

A HUGE thank you to all who contributed, to our Warrior Advocates who identified our families, and to my staff and volunteers that made this all happen.  It was truly an example of the Christmas Spirit!  Thank you all.

Adopt a Warrior Family for Christmas

Many of our Warrior families are in financial crisis this holiday season. Able Forces is adopting one Warrior family in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area from each of the five Military Services and providing an entire Christmas to each.


Able Forces will provide the families:

• A Christmas tree
• Complete dinner that serves up to 8 people
• Stocking stuffers
• Presents for the entire family*

*Able Forces will provide each child up to five gifts off a “wish list” the parents have provided. Our military member and their spouse will also receive a gift.


If contributions exceed the cost of supporting our five families additional families will be identified and sponsored. 100% of all donations go to support the Adopt a Warrior Family for Christmas Program.

All donations contributed between November 12 and December 15 will go directly to support this program.
