Sons of the Flag, a registered non-profit 501 (c)(3), provides critical support to military service members, first responders and civilians who have survived burn injuries.
Sons of the Flag was created because:
- Being burned is one of the most traumatic and painful injuries that one can endure.
- Severe burns are also amongst the most expensive injuries to treat.
- Burn survivors typically have to endure countless surgeries with small gains.
- Burn surgery is a niche field that is incredibly underfunded.
- Current technologies that are available and in early phase testing are not being implemented quickly enough.
Through an extensive network of funding and support, Sons of the Flag aims to further develop innovative research and state-of-the-art skin technologies for the treatment of severe burns by partnering with leading burn centers across the nation. Currently, Sons of the Flag works with Brooke Army Medical Center, Avita Medical Burn Center at Wake Forest University and The University of Texas at Arlington. Sons of the Flag will work in partnership with physicians across the country to promote awareness of new surgical advancements and encourage young physicians to pursue a medical career in burn surgery.
