Our Cause

3/8 Veterans of Fallujah and Ramadi or 38VFR, is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization that is dedicated to aiding any Veteran of the United States Armed Forces who is in need. While 3/8VFR was founded by Combat Veterans of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines who served in Iraq from 2005-2006, we serve all Veterans. Our choice of name is meant as homage to our comrades and their service; particularly those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and brothers. It is their example of selfless service and sacrifice that motivates our actions. These Marines were engaged in bitter fighting over the course of two deployments with the battalion suffering 25 killed and over 300 wounded. With this background we understand many Veterans still suffer from effects of combat sustained during their time of service and hope to help Veterans navigate post military life. **This organization supports the USMC veteran community, however it is not officially connected to or endorsed by the USMC**
