FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is the name of your organization and who is your beneficiary focus?
On June 13, 2013, we incorporated as “Wounded Blue, Inc.” by filing our Articles of Incorporation with the Madison County, Alabama Judge of Probate and with the Alabama Secretary of State. In December 2019, we became known as “Wounded Blue, Inc., d/b/a Alabama Wounded Blue” to provide clarity for our public identity and to minimize confusion with other similarly organized entities. Our focus is to provide financial and service assistance to Alabama law enforcement officers who are wounded in the line of duty, and their families.
