I thought it was odd that they asked me for my address since they called my landline. Its also odd that they asked me to pledge and said they"d send me my something in the mail that i could honor the pledge then transferred me to another person whk asked which credit card id like to use. I pledged but they wont be getting squat. The number it came from was (854) 999-0156

I just want to thank the public who wrote these reviews. I was just making out a check when I decided to do a little investigating. These people called me 3-4 times a day. The number came up as FAV. Finally after weeks of not answering, they called me at 8 am and I answered., thinking it was a family member. They wanted a credit card and I refused. I never heard of this so called charity! They are relentless and I just tore up the check. So glad I checked!

I don'y know anything about this organization. Charity Navigator hasn't reviewed it yet. However, they are a 401(c)19 organization. Donations are NOT deductable.

As most of the reviews that preceded me, I usually do not answer calls that I do not recognize, but they were calling me several times a day, I answered to tell them I want off their calling list. They started off by saying they knew that I had said "NO" to them before but "would I reconsider." That's an indicator they will never stop, no matter what you say to them. So I blocked them, but they will probably just change numbers. As a veteran, I applaud those who want to help. But if you want to help veterans there are many legitimate organizations which really do help. I just don't think this is one of them.

Usually do not answer any phone calls with unknown numbers but as we are currently selling a car, I picked this one up.
Caller used 208 906 2691 and asked for my husband by his first name. I said I would be glad to take a message as he is unavailable and the person said no message they will try back later and hung up on me as I was trying to tell him that he never answers phone calls or talks to people he doesn't know.
The Caller ID was listed as FAV and researching a little led me here. I had suspected from the way the call was handled that this was some sort of scam. Glad to know my instincts are still in tune.
We had the experience before of someone "sharing" (stealing) the husband's credit card from an online purchase and then using it to sign up for some phony travel club. Luckily we were able to get the bank to reverse the charges and had already changed all our bank information.
People that use these (very un)professional fundraising organizations should be aware that the public does not like to be harassed into making donations and if they're aware of it and still use these companies, then they should be charged with criminal harassment as well as the companies that they have hired. Anyone in class action against these idiots?

They don't deserve any stars. We have told them numerous times to take our name off of their list but they keep calling. we never answer. is there anything that we can do to get them to stop harassing everyone.

NO STARS FOR RATING - I usually do not answer the phone when I don't recognize the number. After repeated phone calls, I did answer. I did NOT make a pledge over the phone, but told them it was a "possibility" - they asked for credit card. I said no, send me info. They asked to confirm address. I said you must already have it. Transferred me to another associate who asked if this was my current address and she did provide info that matched my address. Two days later received the pledge card in the mail. Shredded it immediately. Two days later received a reminder. Read these reviews, copied some of them and I am sending a letter stating that I DID NOT MAKE A PLEDGE and requested they remove my name, phone number and address from their files. GAVE NO STARS but it will not let me post without one.

Please do not fall for this scam. Don't let them pressure you into donating by mail or by phone. They call me every day at 8 p.m. they are not approved by the BBB. A real charity will not call relentlessly! I did not give them any $, and they still call everyday, but that is not going to make me donate, I just don't answer the phone when they call.

Very pushy salesperson. When I told him that I would not donate to a charity before looking them up, he hung up. It is really a shame that people are scammed into thinking that they are helping when the money does not go to the vets they purport to be helping.
