We can't do it without your help

Whether it's through a donation, advocating for K2 veterans to your elected representatives, or joining our volunteer staff; we can use your help.

K2 Veterans and Families

If you are a US Military Veteran, Civilian Contractor, or Federal Employee who was deployed to K2 during Operation Enduring Freedom. Or if you are a Caretaker, Family Member, or Gold Star Family Member please click the link to register with us. We can help you find resources to help you or your loved one as you navigate your toxic exposure.


We have a small team of committed K2 veterans are working directly with members of Congress to ensure our rights are guaranteed by law. But we need the assistance of every K2 veteran to contact their elected representatives. Find out how.


We have a very small dedicated staff but are always looking for individuals who are willing to step forward and assist in our cause. If you feel you have a skill, or just have a burning desire to help, let us know.


We strive to hold frequent events for Families and Caretakers as well as veterans. We are also planning a yearly reunion starting in 2021. Learn more about our virtual and in-person events.

Keeping the Promise

Abraham Lincoln stated in his Gettysburg Address: “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

We strive to compel the US Government to keep that promise to its veterans. But it is not the only promise we have to keep; we also have our commitment to our friend and founder Mike West, who succumbed to K2 related cancer, who only asked that we continue the fight for K2 veterans.
