Assists veterans, widows, widowers and children to receive the full benefits they are entitled to.


Our goal is to help service members, veterans and their families understand and manage their military benefits, so that they receive the support to which they are entitled. When an AFSC member dies, survivors receive immediate support. As knowledgeable authorities on the latest developments in all government benefits, we stand by our members’ dependents for life, to ensure no benefits are overlooked.


The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund serves United States military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. Supporting these heroes helps repay the debt all Americans owe them for the sacrifices they have made in service to our nation. They are, in the words of our founder, the late Zachary Fisher, “our nation’s greatest national resource,” and they deserve all the help that our nation can provide.
