Lone Warriors, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Helena, AL that is managed and run by an all volunteer force with a passion for supporting our Veterans and their families.  Eric Fort, a United States Marine Corps Veteran and Gold Star Family member, founded the organization in 2015 with the focus of providing quality of life improvements for US Armed Forces Veterans. 

In the beginning the Lone Warriors team of volunteers provided assistance to our brothers and sisters in arms by helping around the home with those day to day tasks that seem small or we often take advantage of.  But for those in need, building shelving in closets allowing key items to be more accessible or constructing ADA compliant ramps providing easier and safer access into the home as well as simply cleaning up debris in the yard made a life a changing impact.  The smiles and hugs we received time and time again let us know we were making a difference!  

But as we went from project to project, the Lone Warriors team began to feel that there is more we could do to serve our US Armed Forces Veterans.  What other programs could we offer to those in need?  In mid 2016, after much research and discussions with other Veteran Service Organizations, Lone Warriors changed our focus and launched Operation TheraPic,  a unique and simple program with a critical mission - to utilize photography as an additional means of healthy and positive therapeutic healing outside of but complimenting that of the traditional clinical therapy or support group settings for our US Armed Forces Veterans.  This program is focused around those that are battling with visible scars and injuries as well as the invisible scars such as PTS, moral injury, TBI, or transition anxiety that are a direct result of their military service.  For more information on Operation TheraPic and how we accomplish this vital mission visit or Programs page.
