New York Warrior Alliance

Supporting Our Wounded Military Members and Their Caregivers

Our Mission

To support the wounded military members and their caregivers by honoring their service with donations to aide in their rehabilitation. Our funding is supported through donations that are received from the community and other non-profit organizations. An extension of our mission is to support Gold Star Families (families of the fallen).

New York Warrior Alliance started in 2007 originally as Operation Wounded Warrior, a Military Ministry.

How you can help

When one of our military members is wounded, their families suffer right beside them, often leaving their home quickly to spend long periods of time with their loved one as they recover at Walter Reed Medical Center.

New York Warrior Alliance is a local grass roots organization that collects donations of new clothing, toiletries, household supplies and more for our military members and their families. 100% of the proceeds go directly to our wounded warriors and their caregivers, and everything is hand delivered to Walter Reed and shipped to other VA hospitals.

Your donations allow us to do some amazing things for our nation’s finest, their caregivers and their families!

Delivering the goods

We collect new goods throughout the year and then load them up to take to Walter Reed to our wounded military members and their caregivers.


After unloading our goods, they are placed on a distribution table for our wounded military members and/or their caregivers to choose from.

Products/gift cards

We distribute everything from diapers to winter coats to gift cards to make our wounded military  members and their caregivers as comfortable as possible during their stay.

Remembering the anniversary of the Battle of Mogadishu today. 26 years ago today, was a day that I will never forget. Remember the 18 Warriors that gave their lives on this day and the multiple Warriors who were wounded, including my brother LTC James Lechner (Retired) . This instilled in our family a passion to give back to other families who have experienced combat wounds and Gold Star Families through the New York Warrior Alliance. Who knew that we would visit the same exact Ward at Walter Reed Army Hospital in 2008, Ward 57, to bring supplies to the Wounded Warriors and well wishes. God certainly had a plan to bring some kind of good in the wake of this event. May all of the men who survived this day have a sense of peace in their hearts. Beth Lechner Sally Lechner ...

We traveled to Tampa, FL to attend the Stay In Step Spinal Cord Injury RecoveryCenter’s 4th annual gala to support Romulo Camargo and Gabriela Rivero's wonderful endeavor. It was such a beautiful event and we had the opportunity to sponsor several Warriors and their guests to enjoy a night out and show their support to Romy and Gaby as well. There was so much love and admiration in the room for this outstanding couple. We also made connections for future efforts of support, had a fun reunion with dear friends George and Angela Vera, plus made some new friends too. ... See MoreSee Less
