For Warfighter & Crimefighter: Lightfighter & Warriors Heart

Monday, November 29th, 2021

It’s no secret what troubles are faced by members of the military & first responder professions, both in the field while on duty, and off duty after the fact, when the job is done. Stress from these professions follows us home in many forms, and it’s in those moments that our brothers and sisters need help the most. Unfortunately, they don’t always know where or how to get it.

Founded in March 2016, “the Warriors Heart Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established to provide the men and women who protect us with a unique peer-to-peer healing program for “Warriors Only” just outside San Antonio, Texas. No warrior, whether military, law enforcement, fire fighter, or first responder should ever have to walk through the struggles of addiction and mental health alone. The Warriors Heart Foundation was created out of necessity (separately from the Warriors Heart Treatment Facility) to assist in the funding of warriors who don’t have insurance or need assistance in the costs of treatment (all levels of care).”

Lightfighter is proud to announce its adoption of The Warriors Heart Foundation as its native charity. Going forward, and in conjunction with a preliminary donation, the Warriors Heart Foundation will be featured prominently on the Lightfighter Forum. This, to ensure that our brothers and sisters among us know there’s a place to go for the help they need, and a way to get there.

The Lightfighter community strongly supports Warriors Heart. Some members have received treatment at the facility themselves, which inspired Lightfighter’s adoption of the organization and commendation for all they do for those that stepped forward to serve. 

In their own words:

“There is strong medicine in processing grief or moral injuries. Verbalizing those feelings and emotions with a small group of people of similar backgrounds and experiences, is a critical component of addressing the core underlying issues causing self-medication with drugs or alcohol. Where else can a soldier, cop, or firefighter talk about the horrific things they’ve seen on the job and not be judged?”

— Chuck (SGM, US Army, Ret.)

“Warriors Heart gave me the tools to not only take back control my life, but to start thriving again.”

— William (Staff Sgt, US Army, Ret.)

Lightfighter is honored to enable the Warfighter & Crimefighter by supporting those dedicated to their health and wellness, the cornerstone of capability. We sincerely thank Warriors Heart for this privilege.

Combat Flip Flops Veteran Art Auction

Thursday, September 30th, 2021

Over the last two months, the world witnessed an unprecedented event within the borders of Afghanistan. The only thing that matched the nature of the loss and destruction has been the positive effort of the veteran community stepping up to aid in evacuations and transit of interpreters, journalists, athletes, and activists.

Although the media seems to have already moved beyond the event, human beings are still trapped within the borders of Afghanistan. Veterans and private citizens are still working to move them to safety. Without support of the United States Government, organizations continue to raise money to assist in the transportation and resettlement of refugees–because the reality is that this freedom isn’t free. It takes money.

Combat Flip Flops enlisted the effort of renowned artists to donate art to auction to assist in these efforts. For a limited time, you can bid on limited edition art to raise money or resettlement efforts.

Launching the initiative is InvaderGirl and Matt Galbraith. For more information on the art available and incoming, please visit the link: www.combatflipflops.com/AAA

Saturday, September 4th, 2021


KUIU, the leading manufacturer of ultralight performance hunting gear, is teaming up with the Recon & Sniper Foundation to raise funds for fallen soldiers’ families and the families of the injured soldiers after the recent bombing in Afghanistan. The brand is asking the public to support the cause and Kuiu has pledged and since contributed a $25,000 match to the Kabul Fallen Fund.

“The tragedies unfolding in Kabul serve as a sobering reminder of the sacrifices our brave military men and women, as well as their families, make.” Comments Philip McGinty, Vice President of the Recon & Sniper Foundation, “The Recon & Sniper Foundation has partnered with KUIU to launch the Kabul Fallen Fund. The mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support to the families of the fallen warriors and wounded. The lives of these patriots and their families are forever changed, the least we can do is stand shoulder to shoulder to share their burden.” 

So far $129,000 has been donated towards the families through the Recon & Sniper Foundation which works to enhance the quality of life for service members, veterans, and their families. 

“KUIU is humbled at the opportunity to step up and partner with such a great organization to help support the Kabul Fallen Fund,” says Justin Shaffer, Sr. Program Director of Guide and Outfitter at KUIU. “We were heartbroken to hear of the incredibly sad loss of our 13 service members and the 18 that were wounded in this senseless attack. We recognize that it’s a long road ahead as these families of the fallen and wounded continue their healing and grieving process, we want them to know they are not forgotten.”
