Marines and Sailors, along with members of the other service branches, who are attached to Marine units, are deployed all over the world protecting and preserving our freedom. As a result, many are injured in combat operations and in training accidents, or face life threatening illness. Injury to a service member causes an immediate crisis for his or her entire family; not just emotionally, but also financially. Depending on the type of injury, recovery can take many months, and rehabilitative care can take years, often in hospitals far from loved ones.
