The local Veteran Health Administrations (VHA) will receive grocery and gas gift cards from Combat Feathers to be used for all service members, a spouse of a deployed service member, and veterans. If the local VHA does not have grocery and gas gift cards available, any service member, a spouse of a deployed service member, and veterans can submit an application for grocery/gas assistance directly to Combat Feathers. Gas and grocery gift cards are granted based on availability of donated funds.
There is a natural law, inherent in all men and women, that we are all good people and that we help each other as human beings.
Emergency financial assistance is considered to be, but is not limited to, at the discretion of the Executive Director, rent or mortgage, utilities, car insurance and repairs, clothing, food, gas, etc. To be eligible for emergency financial assistance from Combat Feathers, a service member or veteran needs to provide a DD214 that includes a Combat Action Badge (CAB), Combat Infantry Badge (CIB), Combat Action Ribbon (CAR), Medical Action Badge (MAB), or Purple Heart (PH). If the service member or veteran does not have a DD214 that reflects one of these medals, an LOD, a letter from a physician, counselor, and/or psychiatrist at the VA, or military authority figure, which can verify involvement in a combat theatre, will suffice. If a service member or veteran meets this requirement, he or she needs to fill out an emergency financial assistance application and submit all the requested documents requested. Emergency financial assistance is granted based on availability of donated funds.
