The Aleethia Foundation supports wounded/injured/ill service members in their rehabilitation and healing process

Dear Friends and Supporters of The Aleethia Foundation:

Thank you for visiting the Aleethia Foundation's website. Aleethia is proud to play a role in supporting wounded/injured/ill service members and their families through the early phases of the healing process. We are a small, volunteer non-profit dedicated to helping the wounded/injured/ill service members recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (“WRNMMC”).

Aleethia provides support which started with the “Friday Night Dinners.” The Friday dinners were originally started in October 2003 when the injured began arriving at the military medical centers. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center continues to be an outstanding health care facility and remains busy with patients that come from all over the world. These patients are not only facing difficult medical problems but they are away from their families and friends. Most of the dinners for the service members are paid for by contributions from individual donors. Some corporations and organizations will sponsor the entire or partial costs of a “Friday Night Dinner.” A dinner can cost from $4,000 to $ 10,000 per week based upon number of attendees and venue.

In addition to the Friday Night Dinners, patients are helped by meal cards to local restaurants, assistive technology, hyperbaric therapy, tickets to events and assistance with basic expenses. These things help the patient and any traveling family get away from their health issues for a short time and relax. This all helps in the healing process. Your support of Aleethia’s programs makes it possible for us to continue supporting these deserving service members and their immediate families. Your method of giving preserves the dignity of the service members so they do not have to parade in front of a camera or attend fundraisers in order to get the support they need and deserve.

Thank you to our donors!

Without your support we would not be able to continue to provide
immediate and direct assistance to wounded/injured/ill service members!

Please visit the events portion of Aleethia’s website to see photos of the service members and their families enjoying a night out from the hospital. While most of the troops are no longer combat wounded, they are still seriously injured/ill. We support all service members that have put on the uniform for this country. How the injury was received is not of concern to us. We appreciate their service and sacrifices for our freedoms.

Thank you for visiting the Aleethia Foundation. Your support for the service members is greatly appreciated.

The Aleethia Foundation appreciates all support. You can contribute to the support of our programs by going to the Donate section of this website.


While injured troops receive medical care to heal their physical wounds, The Aleethia Foundation honors them with opportunities to enjoy some time away from the hospital environment. Troops say these occasions make them feel truly "at home".
