History of TOMLF

That Others May Live Foundation (TOMLF) was founded in 2002 to benefit the surviving children whose parents were killed during an operational or training USAF Combat Rescue and Personnel Recovery missions. We later expanded our mission to include a broader range of services, including critical warfighter support, merit scholarships, and immediate tragedy assistance to family members of United States Air Force (USAF) Rescue Heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice during a rescue mission, training, or other Personnel Recovery (PR) collateral mission.  

In 2017, TOMLF created its Visible and Invisible Wounds program, focused on a growing crisis area within the community.  TOMLF’s newest program provides advocacy, guidance, and support to USAF Rescue service members, veterans, and families affected by visible and invisible wounds. 

TOMLF is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization and has received the highest level of recognition from GuideStar of Platinum Seal of Transparency. 


There are many ways you can help us to reach as many rescue families as possible by making a tax-deductible donation to TOMLF, volunteering, or shopping at our store.
