The Beyond the Battlefield The Tiegen Foundation mission is to provide support for Wounded Veterans as they face the many challenges encountered during their rehabilitation, reintegration and healing process. Often when our veterans return from their tour of service, the tolls of war have been too great to bear alone.
We will leave no service member behind and will work diligently to prevent veteran suicide. By including wounded members in various Foundation-sponsored events we aim to motivate, encourage and afford them opportunities they might not otherwise have had. The Foundation’s focus is to lift their spirits while reminding them that there is more Beyond the Battlefield and their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
