The Semper Fi Fund’s Resources for Injured Service Members

The Semper Fi Fund offers a variety of resources for our injured service members from recent wars.  They rely solely on donations and the support of individuals and organizations that understand our heroes’ needs, many of them for the rest of their lives.

The cookbooks that we have created with the help of many families of our military, as well as supporters and organizations, are big supporters of the Semper Fi Fund’s mission.  We are committed to continue our efforts to assist them and, thanks to the support of many of you, we have donated  a total of $89,171 since 2009.   Please consider ordering one or more cookbooks.  They are only $10/ea. plus shipping via media mail, which is the most economic way.   You can email me at: gladrod@comcast.net if you have any questions, or if you would like to order one or more cookbooks.

We have two editions – the first one was created in 2009, the second one, Recipes from Across the World, was created in 2014, and it has recipes from places around the world where our supporters have been stationed, or from their ancestry.  I look forward to hearing from you!
