Nine Line Foundation

Our goal is to rebuild, strengthen, and enrich the quality of life of wounded veterans.

Nine Line Foundation

Nine Line Foundation was founded in 2013 by CPT TylerMerritt, a member of the Army’s elite 160th Special Operations AviationRegiment. Tyler had previously created Nine Line Apparel, a clothing line aimed at showing support for military veterans. The vision was simple: to create a high quality clothing brand to be enjoyed by patriotic Americans around the globe. As the brand grew, Tyler saw the need to give back to the community he served as an active duty Army officer, and founded Nine Line Foundation.


Nine Line Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, dedicated to meeting the financial and specialized needs of severely injured soldiers and their families. In combat, a Nine Line is an emergency medevac request, and is often the difference between life and death for the most severely wounded soldiers. Nine Line Foundation aims to serve in a similar manner, offering a lifeline once wounded veterans return stateside.
