This charity has been calling a dozen times a day, when my phone rings, I pick up the
phone and there is about a three second pause while their computer transfers the call
to the agent, at that pause I hang up knowing it is a telemarketer. Finally I let the call go
thru and the fast talker wanted a donation. I told him after I research his foundation will
a donation be considered. Hung up on him. Hope he doesn't call any more.

Fast talker "Steve' has been calling non stop for over a month even after I told him that his organization is a scam and stop calling. I stopped picking up the phone when I saw his number on caller ID. I finally had it with him today and in order to shut him up I had to yell that I don't trust his organization and stop calling. Anyone that comes on this strong is obviously a scam artist.

I've had the same experience with this "charity." I initially received a call from "Steve" early one morning. He tried to get me to donate $50, but finally coaxed me into pledging $30. Then he put on someone to verify my donation, and she wanted my credit card info. I said I would not do that. She said she could save me time and a stamp! I said, no, send me something in the mail. I just received their info in the mail, but since his phone call, I have been receiving daily phone calls from him from various phone numbers. He always seems to call at the most inopportune times, I guess because it's their best chance to find someone home. We even received a phone call on Thanksgiving. My husband answered one night and told him I was not at this number. He apologized and said he would note that, but that didn't stop him from calling again tonight. I feel it's almost to the point of harassment when someone calls you that often and ignores your requests to not call back. After I received their information in the mail, I looked them up and found these reviews and other web sites giving them a bad rating as almost none of their donation funds actually go to Veterans. Needless to say, I will not be donating to them.

These people should be ashamed of themselves. You would do better to give $10.00 to the guy on the street with a sign saying he is a homeless veteran and hungry. At least if he is a scam he had to dress up in some pretty shabby rags and stand out in the street and weather.
I resent someone using my service to pad their pockets. I served for all Americans, even these scumbags. But I am not going to pay again. If you are a veteran, put $10.00 in your other pocket and tell them that you just made a donation that 100% went directly to benefit a follow veteran.

I was surprised to receive a call on my work phone and they asked for somebody else and I said it was a wrong number. The rep said he could speak to me and mentioned donations to veterans. I was interested and I was ready to donate and asked him to provide some more information before proceeding and that I would call back to donate. I looked them up and found that this appears to be a scam.

I just got a call at my work number asking for "Eileen". I said - wrong number and the friendly gentleman on the other end of the line, said, he could talk to me as well. He made is pitch for a donation. Well, who wants to say they don't want to support our vets? So I agreed and the next thing I know I am transferred to a "verifier" who asked to take my credit card number. I told her no, I would not provide my card over the phone to an agency I am not familiar with. She said this way would save me time and a stamp. I said no - I would not do that and so she finally agreed to send me a pledge card. These people were very smooth, very friendly. I will send their pledge back with no check and a note that I don't appreciate the fact that they are scamming people and taking money that should be going to our Vets.

When I got a call from an overly friendly man seeking my help for our vets, I was suckered into making a pledge. Then someone got on the phone asking for my credit card number which I flatly refused to give. I have received a solicitation in the mail but before sending my pledge I found this site. I have ripped up the invoice based on the comments posted here! I will donate to the Vets but not through this organization
