Woody's Warriors

Woody's Warriors

Woody wants you to join our team! 

"Woody's Warriors" supports the Woody Williams Foundation, a charitable 501c3 nonprofit organization focused on the mission to honor, recognize, and serve Gold Star Families and the legacy of their Loved Ones who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The foundation embraces the words of Co-founder and WWII Medal of Honor recipient Hershel “Woody” Williams,"The Cause Is Greater Than I..."

This is the "why" the foundation is proud to be a part of Carry the Load!

The Woody Williams Foundation pursues the mission through three program initiatives with the following goals:

  • GOLD STAR FAMILIES MEMORIAL MONUMENTS: To establish and provide a place of permanence for Gold Star Families to gather and utilize in honoring Loved Ones thus strengthening local Gold Star Family support communities.
  • OUTREACH: To provide opportunities for GoldStarFamilies to come together, honor their Loved Ones, and build a system of support while raising public awareness about Gold Star Families, their sacrifice, and the ultimate sacrifice made by their Loved Ones.
  • EDUCATION: To provide Living Legacy scholarships to GoldStarChildren, and advocate for educational benefits for all Gold Star Family members.

The impact of the Foundation’s work helps to raise public awareness about Gold Star Families’ enduring sacrifice and the ultimate sacrifice made by their Loved One. The Foundation wishes to educate the community about these sacrifices, reminding us all that freedom has not been and is not free.
