About Us

The Old Soldier’s Home Foundation, a 501C(3) organization, was founded by the residents of our Armed Forces Retirement Home. The President, Treasurer and Secretary will always be AFRH residents and will serve without compensation. When appropriate, additional board members will be appointed from outside commercial industries.

We, as residents and Founders, look at the potentially vibrant community within our Armed Forces Retirement Home, and we see a growing sense of malaise and disconnectedness. We can no longer sit back and allow this to continue. We want to see a refurbished campus that will have the facilities and the means to make life more meaningful for every resident.

Your tax-deductible donation will initially help us replenish needed goods and services at our 167-year old Washington DC campus, and start building the first-ever Stand-Down Monument to the tens of thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen who have lived and/or died here since 1851… To be built on this centrally-located 155’ x 20’ wide Quad.

To the right is the Sherman Building, constructed in 1851. In the center, you see Lincoln’s cottage peeking out from behind the trees.
