To improve the quality of life of our wounded, ill and injured veterans and their families through participation in adventurous and challenging outdoor activities.
Regardless of age, gender, race, or ethnicity, the Allied Forces Foundation will focus on rehabilitation and empowerment for these wounded heroes and their families, who clearly understand the high cost of freedom.
ABOUT ALLIED FORCES FOUNDATION:
Allied Forces Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established to unite wounded, ill and injured Veterans and caregivers from US, UK, and allied nations forces in wellness and healing.
Through a series of outdoor, peer-led events that challenge the mind and body, Allied Forces Foundation provides opportunities that reinvigorate the spirit of comradeship and teamwork and instill a renewed sense of purpose with the Veteran.
The Allied Forces Foundation is predominantly an American/British charity with the goal of bringing US, UK, and allied nations Veterans, caregivers and families together for community activities. ‘Side by Side’ is our motto because it exemplifies our approach to recovery. Those who have fought together reunite, share experiences, and offer support to one another.
MILES ON A MISSION
The Allied Forces Foundation is thrilled to present their latest collaborative campaign fundraising effort with partner, United Airlines – Miles on a Mission. United Airlines will match/donate desperately needed airline miles to support our next sport-based challenge – – The Appalachian Yomp, 2-3 October 2021. The Appalachian Yomp will be an exciting team-building challenge for wounded, ill, and injured, caregivers and family members to participate and raise awareness and funds for fellow warriors in need. The Appalachian Yomp will include participants from U.S. and Allied partner nations’ wounded communities, walking side by side with a goal to learn from each other’s experiences and enjoy some of the most picturesque views during the height of the Blue Ridge Mountain hiking season.
This breathtaking 24 hour, 48-mile challenge will follow the Appalachian Trail commencing at Boulder Crest Retreat (BCR) Bluemont, VA to historic Harper’s Ferry, WV, and return via a circuitous route to finish at BCR after completing challenges on route. Teams of four will be created to support this journey to help raise awareness and support for our wounded ill and injured servicemen.
All airmiles raised will go towards wounded warriors travel and participation in the challenge, and offset caregiver travel. Our modest goal of 500,000 is easily achievable; please help us reach our goal – – The smallest donations can have the biggest impact – – The Allied Forces Foundation thanks you so much for your consideration and support.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of the Allied Forces Foundation founder, Maj (Rtd) Stephen Cain MBE.
A graduate of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers. His distinguished military career earned him many honors, including being awarded a Member of the British Empire by Her Majesty the Queen for operational duties as Company Commander.
Stephen was devoted to enhancing the special relationship between Britain and America, and the steadfast alliance of Commonwealth nations in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. He furthered this commitment to British and American forces by establishing the Allied Forces Foundation, with the goal of providing experiences that unite and heal allied wounded, ill and injured. His leadership elevated the awareness of the organization and established the foundation on which the Allied Forces Foundation continues to grow.
We are forever grateful to Major Cain for this commitment to the Allied Forces Foundation. His inspiration has touched the lives of many.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time.
COVID-19 VETERAN RESOURCE
Stress. Anxiety. Isolation. There’s a lot to contend with during this evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Through it, The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics at Centerstone are committed to providing high-quality outpatient mental health care services to veterans, National Guard, Reservists, active duty members with a Tricare referral and all military families. Our clinics provide care for anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, grief, transitional issues, family/relationship challenges, child behavioral issues and local resource referrals. All post-9/11 veterans and military family members are eligible for care, regardless of discharge status or combat experience. Clients also have access to case management services to help with other stresses like unemployment, finances, housing, and legal issues. Staff members fully understand the military experience, as many of them are veterans or military family members themselves. We believe there should be no barriers to care and if a client cannot afford our services we can waive all fees.
