Welcome to the hub of the American Warriors’ Watch Coalition. The AWWC was formed to optimize the efforts of hundreds of troop support groups around the country in order to ensure that every warrior and warrior family that needs assistance will get it. If your organization is engaged in any form of warrior support, sending packages overseas, providing welcome home celebrations, raising funds for veterans, or supporting the activities of military Family Readiness Groups, then your organization needs to join the AWWC.
The American Warriors’ Watch Coalition is an all-volunteer effort designed to help American Warrior Support Groups to realize their full potential. Toward that end, the AWWC will:
-Unite Warrior Support Groups across the country
-Facilitate communication between Warrior Support Groups
-Maximize Mutual Support while minimizing duplication of efforts among Warrior Support Groups.
-Raise awareness of the need for American Warrior and Family Support.
-Educate the young so that future generations understand the true Cost of Freedom and the role that the American Warrior and families play in the preservation of that freedom.
