Our Mission

Warrior Bonfire Program provides opportunities that improve the lives of enemy combat-wounded veterans—Purple Heart recipients—on their lifelong journey of recovery and healing. We create activity-based, small group retreats that foster healing, build support communities, and transform lives.

Stress-free, Safe, Secure

We place warriors, wounded in combat with others of a similar experience, in a stress free, safe and secure settings designed to help our Purple Hearts become better individuals, discover their post service purpose, and encourage building strong family and community relationships.

Honor Our Fallen

We conclude each retreat with an official American Flag Retirement Ceremony which helps our veterans to move past the stage of survivors' guilt by giving them the opportunity to name, honor and memorialize their fallen brothers and sisters. Ashes from each Bonfire are collected and combined with the next Bonfire. Fallen heroes are memorialized through the ashes and therefore never forgotten.

"The Bonfire ceremony helped me by bring peace with those who I couldn't be there for and at their funeral. "

-Maximus M., Purple Heart Patriot
