Who We Are & Our Mission

Laughter truly is the best medicine. An antidote to stress, pain, and conflict; humor opens our hearts, lightens our burdens, brings us hope, and connects us to others.

This powerful medicine helps our heroes recover as they transition from military to civilian life. It provides emotional and physical healing, and it prepares them to reach their life goals.

Laughs for the Troops creates events that bring people together in laughter, and also increase awareness of the plight that many military members face upon returning from combat. Traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder are common ailments among service members, and many of them suffer in silence. Laughs for the Troops helps heal those invisible wounds through humor.
