Two national, nonprofit organizations – the EOD Memorial Foundation and the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation – have merged to form the new EOD Warrior Foundation to support the EOD community. The EOD Warrior Foundation honors fallen EOD warriors and provides assistance to wounded EOD warriors and the families of wounded and fallen EOD personnel.
The Foundation's mission is to support the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to wounded, injured and ill EOD warriors – as well as to the families of wounded and fallen EOD technicians – and to maintain the EOD Memorial Wall in honor of fallen EOD heroes. The Foundation's assistance includes grant awards, scholarships and additional supports such as morale-boosting events, peer-to-peer support and educational programs. The EOD Memorial Wall is located at the Eglin Air Force Base, in Eglin, Fla., and carries the names of EOD technicians who have been killed in the line of duty since War World II.
The EOD Warrior Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which is supported by donations and fundraising events held throughout the year by volunteers.
