The Warrior Fund


With the recent news regarding the incident in Haditha, and Hamdania Iraq, a group of former and retired Marines decided to take action to ensure that our military men are treated like American citizens and considered innocent until proven guilty.

We have formed the "Warrior Fund" as a designated mission of UnitedAmerican Patriots (an IRS 501 ( c ) 3 organization) which is run by Major Bill Donahue USMC (RET). Our goal is to raise funds to defray legal feesincurred by members of our armed forces as a direct result of their service in combat. At this time our board of directors consist of me, Captain DonGreenlaw USMC (RET) and Frank Albano. Certified Public Accountant William H. Porterfield is our treasurer and he will handle the accounting issues ofthe Warrior Fund.

They fought for us, now we shall fight for them.

Please take the time to visit our website and review our bylaws,biographiesof the Board members and the petition for assistance which must be completedprior to any funds being disbursed.

Even though charges were formally filed, in the Hamdania case, an Article32 investigation will now begin. It is imperative that the public is made awarethat the filing of charges in no way indicates that these men are guilty,rather there remains the belief that all men are innocent until provenguilty, which is a pillar of the American system of justice and a coreprinciple of the Warrior Fund.

The fact that any service member can be accused of a "war crime" by aquestionable source (We do not intend to disrespect the Iraqis that broughtcharges, only to illustrate that we have no idea who they are, or theirlevel of integrity), and these allegations are taken seriously speaksvolumes about our American system of justice and our belief in the rule oflaw. However attempts by the media and a certain irresponsible member of congress to proclaim the guilt of these Marines without having seen a finalreport from the investigators is sickening.

In closing, if you believe that these men deserve to be treated the same asan average American citizen, please take the time to make a charitablecontribution which you may deduct from your income taxes. Any amount you canspare will directly benefit these fine American warriors. In addition tofinancial support we also need assistance in spreading the word about thefund. Donations may be made online through paypal, or mailed to the addresson

Rick Van Luvender President The Warrior Fund
