How do the soldiers feel about the help Heartbeat provides?


Wounded warriors often send words of appreciation. They’re families are grateful too. Sometimes they write letters. Sometimes they tell us in person. They let us know the huge impact our programs have on their lives.

Why do you help only the wounded? Don’t others need your help too?


All warriors and their families deserve our time and appreciation. Many organizations serve both wounded and non-wounded. We did at one time too. We realized that we could serve more wounded warriors if we focused completely on them.

Does Heartbeat have plans for other programs?


We remain open to new ideas that help our wounded heroes. Our focus is on their greatest needs. Of course, finances always play a part in our ability to run a program.

Does Heartbeat help both wounded and injured soldiers?


Most of our programs are for both wounded and injured.

What is the difference between a wounded and injured service member?


The military defines these terms differently. If the soldier is hurt in an accident while here at home, it’s called an injury. If the soldier is hurt while in a battle or war, it’s called wounded. That is also the term if the soldier is in a car accident while overseas.

With so few paid staff, how can you accomplish so much?


Heartbeat has a large, dedicated group of volunteers. They bring many talents with them — we’re eternally grateful to them. Equally important is their commitment to show appreciation to our brave warriors.

How do you get enough money for some of the expensive programs?


Our staff and volunteers spends time on different fundraising efforts.

Does all the money to operate Heartbeat come from donations?


Yes. We could not exist without our generous donors.

Are you a health care organization?


Heartbeat is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that serves wounded warriors and their families many ways. Our programs are healing to our heroes, but we are not a health care facility.

How can I volunteer?


At this time, Scuba Warriors serves wounded GWOT Warriors in WA State.  IF you are a wounded warrior in another state, you are welcome to be in this program, BUT, unfortunately,  we do not have funds for travel and lodging.

Heartbeat received a seed grant from Infinite Hero Foundation to start a limited Scuba Warrior expansion to our courageous wounded Marines  in NC and Wounded Warrior Regiment East at Camp Lejeune. It IS the Vision of Heartbeat Serving Wounded Warriors® to take Scuba Warriors Nationally.
