The Sentinels of Freedom Foundation began as a grassroots effort, "to provide life-changing opportunities for men and women of the U.S. armed forces who have suffered severe service-related injuries and need the support of grateful communities to realize their dreams," according to Conklin. It provides four-year, "life scholarships," to men and women of the armed services whose wounds led to amputation, paraplegia, severe burns, blindness and/or deafness. Jones International University, the first fully online university in the U.S. to be granted regional accreditation, was named the Sentinels of Freedom's preferred provider of online education in August 2007.
