Boot Campaign began when average Americans chose to outwardly express their gratitude for active duty service members, veterans and their families by lacing up one of the most visible signs of military service: combat boots. Our decade-long efforts have only been made possible by patriots from coast to coast who heard our mission, believed in it and took the next step to help us spread it amongst their friends, families and colleagues.

Help us continue our mission to unite Americans to honor and restore the lives of veterans and military families through individualized, life-improving programs. #LaceUpAMERICA

Our Purpose And How We Do It

It's our duty to care for the physical health and mental well-being of every man and woman who laces up their boots to defend our freedom. Less than 50 percent of military personal and veterans struggling with invisible wounds of war like brain injury, post-traumatic stress, chronic pain, addition or insomnia receive care. 

OUR HOW: Through customized and holistic care, Boot Campaign works to treat the root cause of the challenges veterans face. 

On average, eighty-eight cents of every dollar supports our three vital programs to restore the lives of veterans and their families.
