Best of the best. For a warrior with no other outlet- Bunkers has gone out of its way to make my life better.

My husband is a wounded warrior. I reached out to Joe after learning from Callaway Golf that this non-profit exists. I emailed Bunkers and he responded to me within an hour. He sent my husband golf balls, a hat, a towel, golf shoes, and a beautiful golf shirt. What a great organization. Keep up the great work.

What a great non-profit!!! I have been working with Bunkers for the last year and there is not a more easy group to work with out there. Their response rate, ideas, and willingness to help its volunteers feel welcomed is second to none. Thank you for all that you do in supporting our warriors and troops.

I am deployed overseas and reached out to Joe and his team to receive golf equipment. Within 2 weeks- we had thousands of golf balls and hundreds of clubs. No exaggeration- this was a life saver. What a great charity and what a great idea. Thank you for everything. God Bless.

I contacted Joe about sending golf equipment to our team on deployment. His quick response and outstanding support enabled our troops to enjoy the holiday season while on deployment with a little friendly competition out on our site. It was heartwarming to have this organization help us in what can be such a solemn time. Thanks to you and your team Joe.

I heard about this organization through my peers at work while on rotation to Camp Buerhing Kuwait. I reached out to them to see if they were able to send my unit some golf equipment. We have a large company here, and Bunkers in Baghdad sent an ample amount of equipment to facilitate a way for us to recreate in our free time. They sent us 18 pounds of golf balls and 2 sets of golf clubs! I have a lot of respect for them after their goodwill. Pictures and donation to follow soon!

Wow! My husband is deployed at the moment and we heard about Bunkers in Baghdad through a friend. I sent Joe an email asking if I could get some equipment sent to my husband. First off, he is super professional and very quick to respond and send him everything! What a nice person! My husband loves to golf and this will be something he can do that makes him feel a little more at home & keep his mind off of work! Thank you SO much from the bottom of my heart, I know my husband will feel the same!

I am a deployed service member and while on deployment I was told about Bunkers in Baghdad through the golf company Callaway. Callaway is a supporter of Bunkers in Baghdad. So I emailed them telling them my story that I am deployed and would be hoping to play some golf in my off time along with my fellow Airman. He replied the next if not the same day and was great to talk to and work with. He made it very simple by telling me what I needed to do and what information he needed. It was incredible how fast and helpful he was. After receiving a donation I know that this is an organization I intend to donate to and help. Thank you Joe for everything you do!

I can not gather up the words to express how professional Joe and his organization is. I sent him an email, and within a few hours he responded to me. By the next morning he had fulfilled my wishes and made a dream come true for my husband. If I could give him and his organization 10 stars, I would. I want to thank you Joe for truly being a blessing from above and going above and beyond for my husband and troops across the nation!

i heard about Bunkers in Baghdad from a fellow golf buddy in the Navy. I wrote Joe Hanna before I deployed and asked what the process was. He got back to me within a day and I had 3 boxes of balls find me at FOB Union III within 3 weeks. In the process of building a 'driving range' so I can put the balls to work. The heat will break soon and I may even move it to the roof... smoke a few cigars and stripe balls into a net. What better way to pass the time?
