About Us

Warrior Research Foundation

We support our military and their families

As an organization we want to mentor, empower, and support our veteran families through research, film, referral, direct service support, and advocacy. A significant part of our vision is to identify the current and changing needs of our active duty, separated, and retired veterans and their families. 





 "Echoes From Afghanistan"

“Echoes from Afghanistan” is the story about the impact of war on the human spirit and how these five friends, these Marines, continue to find support in one another, how they have found purpose in their lives, and how they refuse to be a statistic to suicide.

Warrior Research Foundation Focus Areas


Veteran-2-Veteran Support Network

The Warrior Veteran-2-Veteran Support Network is a program that will help veterans create and maintain interactive and sustainable peer support groups. WRF’s intent is to provide a foundation and context for these men and women to effectively construct a strong support system.


Set Condition Red

 An innovate program that actively supports suicide prevention for active, separated, and retired veterans. Our goal is to preserve life, establish common connections among our veterans and to direct our veterans to services by way of guidance from their peers, while always striving to maintaining a judgment free environment. 




Education and Research Through Film

 Stories of Service via film provides our veterans a way to share their stories of bravery, sacrifice, and resiliency, while being able to connect with others in one of the most powerful mediums.

Veteran's time in war consumes their peace co-authored by WRF's Senior Executive Director Summer Watson, PhD and featured in the San Francisco Chronicle


Michael Pritchard, Shelia Kirkbride, and Summer Watson, PhD sit down and talk about issues that are impacting our veterans. 

Sadly, our veterans are committing suicide at the alarming rate of 18 to 22 a day. This is heartbreaking and something we feel strongly about changing. It is important we don’t lose one more to suicide. You can challenge your college, university, or organization to make their own unique #22to0 video to continue to raise awareness.
