“We salute The Legion Fund as the true ‘Quiet Professionals’ of military charities.”
– Command Sergeant Major (Retired), Frank McFadden, Legionnaire (5th Group Family) since 1982
The Legion Fund assists 5th Group Soldiers and their families by supporting seven essential needs.
- Emergency Needs
- Educational Scholarships
- Families of Fallen Heroes (Gold Star)
- Medical Therapies
- Child Care
- Catastrophe Fund
- Team Building
These seven lanes, or pillars of support, were chosen and identified as most critical in coordination with 5th Group Command, Unit spouses, veterans, and Gold Star families.
Critical needs for families and soldiers in a highly-deployed Green Beret Unit.
Merit-based higher education scholarships to ensure that children of 5th Group soldiers and veterans can attend the best school they get into – not the best school that their parents can afford on government wages.
Families Of Fallen Heroes (Gold Star)
All manner of support for families whose 5th Group soldier has made the ultimate sacrifice.
Medical, Psychological and Other Forms of Support to Soldiers and Families
Free child care support for spouses of deployed soldiers and for couples seeking alone time after deployments.
The reserve fund when tragedy strikes.
