Ranger & Family Health & Wellness Program
With over 23 consecutive deployments since the start of the Global War on Terrorism, the preservation of this extremely pressured force is a necessity. When a Ranger is deployed, so is his family. The long separations can be challenging and strenuous on the family unit. Family Readiness Groups (FRGs), consisting of family members and other volunteers associated with a particular unit, act as First-Responders that serve to enhance the well-being, morale and esprit de corp of the unit. Through our Ranger Family Health and Wellness Program, we are able to support the FRGs in the Regiment with grants to pay for these all-important family morale-boosting activities.
LTWF understands the strain and stress the families of this elite force endures, conservation of the family unit is paramount for the morale and focus of our Rangers. When a Ranger has made the Ultimate Sacrifice, LTWF will provide funds to get FRG “First Responders” to the side of the Ranger wife and family during the arduous burial process. Additionally, each year during the holiday season, LTWF provides gift cards to our more junior NCO Ranger families, determined by Command, who are most in need and under financial strain during the season.
