About Allied Forces Foundation

Allied Forced Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established to unite wounded, ill, and injured service people and Veterans as well as caregivers from US, UK, and allied nations forces in wellness and healing. 

Through a series of outdoor, peer-lead 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 Forced 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. 

Maj (Rtd) Stephen Cain MBE

Founder and Chairman Emeritus

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.
