© CB & Sons

To date CB & Sons have raised 35K for WEODWF/EODWF. Help us reach our goal of 50K in One Day! When asked why CB & Sons are involved it's simple. Between the seven of us, five have served, 1 of us retired, 2 having served in USMC, and 2 still serving in NSW, with over 58 years of combined service between us – all of us having served in direct Combat, jointly agree that our EOD Warrior Brethren have taken great risks for each of us to ensure we could accomplish our missions safely. Thus we feel our efforts are best served by supporting our EOD Warrior brethren thru our efforts to raise awareness & funds for EODWF. Nuff said!!!

Our Foundation Board of Directors will be comprised of existing board members from both the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. In addition, I am pleased to announce that Nicole Motsek will serve as Executive Director to manage the daily operations and overall goals of the Foundation as we remain steadfast in our commitment to serve the EOD community. March 1, 2013 To the EOD Community, Family and Friends, Just as the joint service EOD community adjusts tactics and reorganizes command structure in order to improve the fighting effectiveness of battlefield operations, so must the benevolent organizations that support them. As of March 1, 2013, the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation have merged to form the EOD Warrior Foundation. The EOD Warrior Foundation combines the missions and resources of these established organizations to increase our capacity to serve and support the joint service EOD community. The EOD Warrior Foundation will continue to provide assistance to wounded, ill, and injured EOD warriors. The Foundation will also maintain the EOD Memorial Wall in honor of our fallen EOD warriors, and provide support to both wounded and fallen warriors’ families. Our support for the families of EOD warriors will include our ongoing commitment to the EOD community scholarship program. The merger of the foundations will help streamline our ongoing care to the community overall and help eliminate confusion among our donor community. The merger and expanded mission will also enable the new EOD Warrior Foundation to grow and evolve, ultimately allowing us to serve more EOD warriors and their families, for decades to come. The EOD Warrior Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and additional supports, such as morale events, peer support, and educational programs to active duty EOD warriors, veterans and their families, and families of the fallen, and the ongoing care of the EOD Memorial Wall. The immediate and ongoing resources provided by the Foundation are above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Our VisiOn ThE EOD WarriOr FOunDaTiOn LOgO

The EOD Warrior Foundation logo reflects the rich history, tradition and symbolism of the EOD badge, the ongoing mission of the Foundation, and the courage, strength and resilience of the EOD community we serve. Key symbolic elements within the logo include: Bomb: Inspired by the World War II Bomb Disposal Badge, the bomb represents the historic and major objective of the EOD attack: the unexploded bomb. The three fins represent the major threats areas: conventional bombs, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The separation of the bomb represents the EOD mission to render the bomb safe and the Foundation’s goal to disarm challenges. Lightning Bolt: The lightning bolt symbolizes the potential destructive power of the bomb, along with the courage, power and strength of the entire EOD family. shield: The shield in the nose of the bomb signifies the EOD mission to protect lives and property, and the Foundation’s commitment to protect our EOD families in the most vulnerable of times. heart: The heart represents the compassion and ongoing care and support the Foundation provides to EOD families. The heart is located in the tail of the bomb to reflect how compassion and support steer the Foundation’s efforts; much like the tail fin directs a bomb. The heart is also symbolic of the Purple Heart awarded to EOD warriors killed and wounded in action in service to our country.  Please find attached a fact sheet that provides an overview of the Foundation and our services that support our EOD warriors and their families, and honors our fallen heroes. If you would like additional information or assistance, please contact us at info@eodwarriorfoundation.org or call (540) 554-4550. The EOD Warrior Foundation operates from the core belief that the EOD family is for life. We remain resolute in our service and support of our military family. We are extremely grateful and thankful for your ongoing support and commitment to the EOD community that enable us to carry out our mission to provide assistance to those who serve and sacrifice for our freedom.

EODWF FAQ CONTINUED

FAQ
What is EOD?
EOD stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal, relating to the disarming and disposal of bombs. On today’s battlefields, bombs known as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are responsible for the majority of fatalities and severe injuries to our troops. The IED has become the enemy’s strategic weapon of choice and on average, EOD forces around the world respond to more than 10,000 threats per year.

Who is eligible for a grant? We prioritize our grants on the following tier system: Tier 1: Active-Duty Military EOD Technician, EOD Reservist on Active Duty, wounded in combat operations. Tier 2: Military EOD Technicians/ wounded in non-combat EOD operation. Tier 3: Other EOD family inquiries are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Tier 4: Federal, State and Local Bomb Technicians, members of IABTI injured in the line of duty. How can I support the EOD Warrior Foundation? Donations can be made in the following ways: By check: Make checks payable to EOD Warrior Foundation and mail to: EOD Warrior Foundation 33735 Snickersville Turnpike, Suite 201 PO Box 309, Bluemont, VA 20135 Online: at www.eodwarriorfoundation.org Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): CFC# 37190 Fundraising events: To submit an idea or apply to conduct a fundraising event, go to www.eodwarriorfoundation.org and click on FUNDRAISING, then FUNDRAISING PROPOSAL. Volunteer: To volunteer, go to www.eodwarriorfoundation.org and click on VOLUNTEER. Will my support now for the Foundation affect my current year combined federal campaign (CFC) allotments? NO. When the FY 2014 campaign starts up again in September of 2013, please use CFC number 37190 to designate the EOD Warrior Foundation. What do EOD Technicians do? EOD is a joint-service military occupation skill, which means EOD technicians serve within the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force. EOD Technicians are highly trained military responsible for disarming, rendering safe and disposing of a variety of IEDs. EOD Technicians are considered to have one of the most dangerous occupations in the military and willingly put themselves in harm’s way to protect the lives of others. On average, there are more than 7,000 brave men and women serving as EOD Technicians. Their service includes support to the most complex special operations missions. When EOD Technicians are injured: EOD Technicians sustain some of the most severe and often life-changing injuries including loss of limbs, paralysis, blindness and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Many of our wounded, injured and ill EOD warriors may also experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Recovery and rehabilitation from these injuries can be extensive and require months and sometimes years of inpatient and outpatient care. Fallen EOD Warriors: For the families of fallen EOD warriors, the surviving family members face many changes and challenges in their lives as they grieve the loss of a loved one. Both the short- and long-term emotional and financial impacts on wounded EOD warriors and their families and the families of the fallen, can be quite significant. Fortunately, the EOD community is as resilient as it is steadfast. The EOD Warrior Foundation is accompanied by an indivisible EOD family network, which enables wounded, injured and ill EOD warriors and their families, and families of fallen EOD warriors to face the future with hope, knowing they are not alone as they forge a new life.

The EOD Warrior Foundation: Frequently Asked Questions The EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves the EOD community by providing assistance to active-duty wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, wounded EOD veterans and families of our fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial Wall in honor of our fallen EOD warriors. The Foundation believes the EOD family is for life and is committed to providing the necessary assistance and ongoing support to our EOD warriors and their families. The EOD Warrior Foundation was established through the March 1, 2013 merger of the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation, two well-established and respected organizations supporting the EOD community.

thE EOD MEMOrial Wall

The EOD Memorial Wall honors EOD men and women who gave their lives in the performance of duty, having died on active duty as a result of an EOD mission since the declaration of World War II. The original memorial was built at the EOD School, then located at Indian Head, Md. In 1999, after consolidation of the EOD School from Indian Head to Eglin, Fla., a new memorial was constructed across from the main EOD School building at Eglin Air Force Base.

Why did the two foundations merge? The merger combines the mission and resources of the foundations to help streamline our support and increase our capacity for providing assistance to the EOD community overall and to eliminate confusion among our donors. The new EOD Warrior Foundation is positioned to grow and evolve, in order to serve more EOD warriors and their families for decades to come. What financial assistance is provided by the Foundation? The immediate and ongoing resources provided by the Foundation are intended to provide support above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Initial Grant: The initial grant of $3,000 is issued to newly combat-injured personnel and their families when they return stateside for treatment. The Foundation also provides iPads and online connectivity for one year to inpatient personnel, so they can stay connected to distant family, friends and their military units. Follow-on Grants: Additional awards are granted to wounded, injured and ill EOD personnel and families of wounded and fallen warriors on a case-by-case basis, to provide financial assistance with expenses such as child care, adaptive equipment, retreats, travel expenses, debt relief and other financial support. Foundation Scholarships: Scholarships are provided to EOD family members, with priority given to family members of fallen and wounded EOD warriors. Scholarships are intended to assist with the costs of tuition, books and fees at two- and four-year colleges. Remaining scholarship funds are awarded competitively to eligible students, based on academic merit, community involvement and financial need. What assistance is available to the families of fallen EOD personnel? The EOD Warrior Foundation is committed to long-term connections with the families of our fallen warriors. Financial support is available to Gold Star families to attend retreats and to receive financial counseling services, scholarships, and general support to help stay connected to our EOD family. Are any services offered by the Foundation available to the active-duty EOD community? Most of our wounded, ill and injured EOD personnel remain on active duty. We provide support to both active-duty and veteran EOD personnel who are retired with disabilities. How do I apply for a grant? Go to www.eodwarriorfoundation.org and click on APPLY for GRANT.
For more information about the EOD Warrior Foundation, please email us at info@eodwarriorfoundation.org or call us at 540.554.4550.
