Reviews for Bunkers In Baghdad
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?

We are deployed to Egypt for a peace keeping mission. I heard of this charity (Bunkers over Baghdad) thru fellow soldiers and friends. I email Joe and I had a response from him within 24 hrs of sending the initial email. Joe and his organization had the equipment package and mailed within a week of requesting the golf equipment. Thanks to caring people like Joe and Bunkers over Baghdad, soldiers will have a great time playing golf. It’s wonderful to know, there are organizations like Bunkers over Baghdad out there supporting our troops.
Joe and the rest of the team have done an amazing job by providing an escape from the daily stress and tempo of generating Combat Airpower!. Not only was his response to the request delivered in less than 48 hours, the package arrived in less than a week across thousands of miles! Awesome program and please keep up the great work!
I first heard of the charity Bunkers in Baghdad when I was overseas. A couple of other joe's were talking about how awesome they were and that it was a charity organization. I am an active duty recipient and I can't be more grateful. This will definitely get me started. Thank you!!
I heard about them through a friend and that they will send golf equipment to active duty members. I decided to try to get some for my husband since he loves to golf but has never been able to buy some for himself. Joe emailed me right back and communicated with me personally throughout the entire process. The equipment came today, and my husband was stoked! People like this are a dime a dozen. Thank you!!
Active Duty Marine forward deployed.
I was in contact with Joe immediately after I sent the first email. He was very kind and I could feel that he truly wanted to take care of my wishes. I am honored to call my self a supporter of his organization.
Active duty Marine serving forward deployed.
Mr. Hanna instantly responded to our request for support and the next day there were clubs in the mail. I know when they arrive they are sure to put a smile on the Marine's faces and help take their mind off things for awhile. It's wonderful to know organizations like this are out there looking out for the well being and moral of forward deployed troops no matter the clime or place! Thanks for all you do.
