The Home Front Cares…

July 5th’s meetup featured Major General Bentley Rayburn, USAF (Ret) — a great opportunity for everyone in attendance to get a high-level military perspective on the state of the world and state of the nation.

While national defense issues are in continual flux, one constant is the personal cost to the warriors and their families.  General Rayburn is President of The Home Front Cares, a non-profit which providing the following programs:

Grants to Families Fund | Assistance for car repairs, house repairs, childcare, evictions, food, and other family emergencies.

Energy Assistance Program | As an agency of Energy Outreach Colorado, THFC receives limited grants to pay energy bills for all Active Duty, Activated Reserve and National Guard, and recent medically released Veterans, living in Colorado, who need financial assistance. (Deployment not required)

Wounded Troops/Casualty Assistance Fund | Pays travel costs and incidental expenses of military family members traveling to visit seriously wounded service members in military hospitals. The same service is extended to family members to attend memorial services of service members killed in action.

Adaptive Housing and Vehicle Modification Program | Help for disabled military and veterans in the State of Colorado in obtaining housing and vehicle modifications necessary to improve their quality of life and to aid them in adapting to their disabilities.

Welcome Home GWOT Heroes Program | Started in January 2004, the Welcome Home GWOT Heroes Program has supported welcoming events for returning soldiers, airmen, and families along with Memorial Services, Wounded Warrior Socials, and other functions not readily supported by DOD funding. Welcome Home GWOT Heroes provides a link for local citizens to actively participate in welcoming home our Hungry Heroes via a partnership with the Southern Colorado McDonald’s operators. It also supports special needs for wounded warrior units at local installation hospitals, rehabilitative facilities, and the Warrior Transition Unit.

Phil Long’s Operation Home Support | The Phil Long family of car dealerships, in partnership with The Home Front Cares, helps to solve transportation problems for military families, through roadside assistance, rental car discounts and maintenance, service and repair discounts.

There is always more need than there are resources, please support the heroes who defend our liberty and their families.


Holiday Meet up July 5 Is On!

“Generally speaking, you should ask, he will tell”

Major General Bentley Rayburn – Up On The Roof

Not even the President would dismiss our next guest speaker. If you’re a proud American and patriot, please join Major General Bentley Rayburn, USAF (Ret.), as he discusses, with unvarnished truth, the issues that are relevant to us today. What are your hot buttons? Terrorism? Don’t ask don’t tell? General McChrystal, our troop morale and readiness, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq? Join us, and ask the General!

Let’s honor the America our Founding Fathers crafted so brilliantly. As we celebrate Independence Day, why not bring along some new friends and family? I’m also hoping to spice up the meet up with a special entertainment segment. “Generally” speaking, it should be a good time.

Learn more about the General and his fight to support the families of our deployed troops at:
