Quite a few of us here come from military families, or have enlistees and veterans in our own lives, which is why we have always been strong supporters of charities for veterans, enlistees and their families. So in honor of Memorial Day, and America’s brave fallen soldiers and their amazing families, took at look at Charity Navigator’s list of top military family support charities to find a few top-rated charities worth sharing.Turns out they have their list of top- rated military charities broken into wounded troops services,military social services, as well as military family support, which is where I found the ones here.

There are so many terrific organizations doing essential work (it’s really worth clicking over to find an organization that speaks to you), but here are just a few I wanted to call your attention to because of their four-star ratings, and outstanding support for surviving spouses and families.

The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation is dedicated to securing college scholarships to children who have lost a parent in the line of duty, or whose families have suffered combat casualties and other duty related injuries or deaths. They’ve provided more than $10 million in scholarships to support well over 600 scholars over the past 15 years.
