Homefront Heroes travels throughout the country to find the stories of courage, commitment and inspiration in the Wounded Warrior Community. This community, which includes the wounded, their families, doctors, nurses, caregivers, researchers and local communities, is a tightly knit group that exemplifies the American spirit.
Homefront Heroes finds amazing stories from all parts of the Wounded Warrior Community, whether it’s the story of a wounded warrior adjusting to a new life, a family member that has given up everything to care for their loved one, a researcher in the Pacific Northwest, a team of plastic surgeons on the West Coast, an East Coast organization that raises money and provides services for our wounded, or the many others that are making a difference. They all have a different perspective, and each has found a way to step forward.
Homefront Heroes has made it their mission to create a grassroots awareness of these ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things. They show everyone how they can help and become part of this community.

Homefront Heroes spent two days in Los Angeles talking with the Buddy Families that are part of Operation Mend. Operation Mend is a nonprofit partnership with the U.S. Army that provides plastic surgery to soldiers who have been severely disfigured from burns. The Buddy Families are a support group that helps the patients and their families when they are in town for multiple surgeries. They become the soldiers' extended families, providing a place to go that is away from the hospital, such as out to dinner and sightseeing. These families, none of whom have prior connections with the military, open their homes and lives to wounded warriors. The children in the Buddy Families also play a big role by helping the kids of the patients keep active and not focused on what they are going through.
