Fallen Heroes

06.28.13

This summer, NAPA will donate $1 to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund for every qualifying Battery, Alertnator and/or Starter we install (w/ every rebate you redeem).

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a non-profit organization that provides support to United States military personnel wounded in service to our nation, and their families.

  • Organized in 2000, the Fund was established as an independent not-for-profitorganization in 2003.
  • Since its inception, the Fund has provided almost $150 million in support for families of U.S. military personnel lost in service or severely wounded and veterans.
  • The Fund relies solely on public donations with 100% of contributions applied directly to Fund projects. Nothing is deducted for administrative expenses.

Our Accomplishments and Goals 

  •  Family Support (2000 – 2005) The Fund provided close to $20 million to families of U.S. and British military personnel lost in performance of their duties.
  • The Center for the Intrepid (January 2007) To serve military personnel catastrophically wounded in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, a $55 million state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center was opened at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas.
  • National Intrepid Center of Excellence or NICoE (June 2010) A 72,000-square-foot facility for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS) was opened at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
  • NICoE Satellite Centers (Current Project) Efforts are now focused on the design and construction of multiple centers which will enable military personnel to receive state-of-the-art treatment for TBI and PTS in connection with the main NICoE Center in Maryland. Two centers are under construction; funds are needed to build up to seven additional centers.
