I have had the opportunity to work with the Aleethia Foundation for the last three years and cannot possibly give them the praise they deserve.
My patient population is our nations wounded hereoes and their families of of Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn. The Aleethia Foundation has been there for them for the last 7 years everyday and in everyway. There is no request too small or too large for the Aleethia to assist with. Hal Koster and his crew have forsaken everything in their lives to make sure our wounded and their families have everything they need to recover, rehabilitate, and reintegrate into society. I wish I could put into words the absolute magic these folks do everyday.
I work with over 500 501(c)(3)'s and count a half dozen of those as true "Gold Medal" benevolent organizations and only two I would even consider penning a review for.
The Aleethia Foundations, and those who work with them, are truly righteous individuals with clear vision and mission and always keep the wounded and their families at the forefront of both.
