Reviews for Fallen & Wounded Soldiers Fund Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a US Marine veteran. Did one tour in Iraq. Diagnosed with Combat PTSD. I recently lost my job and was getting behind in all of my monthly bills. I have always been the type to do things myself and not ask for help. But when the shut off notices came and I haven't started my new job yet, I had no other choice.
A VA service worker referred me to this wonderful charitable organization and they were able to catch up on all of my behind bills, provide me with that security, and and also provided information for local food banks and other information for veterans.
God bless this organization!!!

This organization has been amazing to our family during our difficult times. My husband who is a OIF and OEF Veteran was diagnosed on Easter Sunday of 2015 with a rare stage 4 metastatic cancer. I cannot thank Lynn and all the others who have helped our family through this very difficult time. They have been such a blessing as we try to figure out finances, treatments and other resources we may need. It has been such a scary and emotional journey and The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund has helped so much on easing our minds for certain things. We will be forever grateful!!!

FWSF has helped My family of 5 with our house payment when I've fallen behind at work due to my disability. If it wasn't for there generosity we would be homeless again. This is a nightmare I face more then I have ever imagined. We thank God everyday for FWSF

Words can not begin to describe on any level what you guys have given back to not only myself but my kids! When my back was against the wall awaiting the government to get their ducks in a row and finally decide to get to my case at their pace I was looking at so many fears coming true that I never wanted my kids to ever see. Homeless broke and left out to dry an Angel came into my life her name is Lynn and not even 24 hours later a huge weight was lifted and worries were gone! I really cannot give enough thanks to her and the fallen and wounded soldier fund! Only if our government was run by the fallen and wounded soldier fund only then our military branches would ever see how our veterans would actually now how they are appreciated and I could almost guarantee that the most awful number know to veterans would not be 22! Because they would know that someone is always there for them for what ever issue they might be trying to get though! God bless Lynn and The Fallen and Wounded Soldier Fund

When a very bad situation came up, and no other organization could or would help us, this organization did. Quick, caring and ultimately when my disabled husband ended up hospitalized for a week it was that much easier on me and my children. We are a dual disabled veteran family, and I am also his caregiver. Thank you so much for being there for us in our time of neex.

I'm a disabled Army Veteran who served over 7 years active duty. I was deployed twice Irag 2007-2008, and Afghanistan 2010-2011. During those two combat deployments I got injured and hurt. Once I got out the Army in 2012. I filed my VA claim and it's now 2016. I haven't got anything yet from the VA. During my years being out of the Military. For the past couple of years this great organization, has been helping myself and my family out. If it wasn't for Lynn and her wonderful group. Myself and my family would be homeless. If you looking for a great organization to donate to this is the one. This is a wonderful organization who helps out a lot of wounded veterans. Before I asked Lynn for help, I asked the Wounded Warrior Project for help. Do you know what I got? Nothing they said they couldn't help me. So once again on behalf of my family and I. I would like to say again thank you!!!!!

We were helped with a refrigerator, groceries, and utilities. We were also gifted money this Christmas and were ever so thankful. This organization and it's volunteers are wonderful. Lynn Phillips is the most wonderful and kind hearted woman.

I was down in the dumps... Going to school ... Working full time ... But still living paycheck to paycheck due to a lot of debt I accumulated while I was still a soldier ( some unfortunate events) ... Then my car broke down and it was way too expensive to repair and smarter to get a newer used vehicle ... But I needed a lot of help with the down payment... FWSF helped me right on the spot... Minimal questions asked. They WANTED to help. I didn't feel like I was a burden. They made me feel really comfortable asking for financial help! Today I'm driving that car that they so generously helped me pay for! Thank you So much FWSF! You helped me up when I was falling ... God Bless you all and all who donate!!!

This isthe most amazing organization. They have helped our family on several occasions. We have gotten financial help with rent, utilities, car and insurance, food, gas, and other miscellaneous expenses. Lynn has also shared resources such as other avenues for assistance and vet friendly vendors. We would not have made it til the VA approved my husband's claim or been able to establish our new home. They offer real immediate aid and we are forever grateful.
