I am a 100% combat disabled US Marine Corps veteran. A number of years ago, when my daughter was preparing for college, she happened upon Freedom Alliance. At the time I knew nothing about this organization. She informed me that Freedom Alliance was a nonprofit organization that awards scholarships to children of both deceased and permanently disabled vets. She wrote a brief essay telling about herself, my military background and the challenges we both faced as a result. A few days later she received a phone call informing her that she got the scholarship! We were blown away...
The story doesn't end here, it's actually just the preface. Freedom Alliance welcomed my entire family into their fold. We have been invited to outings and family vacations. It has been wonderful for all of us, but for me it has been a life changer! I was in a very bad place when Freedom Alliance took us in. I was suffering from severe PTSD- I was depressed and isolated from my friends and family. I was hell bent on a path of self destruction. Freedom Alliance not only took me in, they treated me with dignity and respect. I was invited to attend several outings with veterans who were in the same boat that I was in. During these outings we had a very rare chance to bond and discuss our common experiences. For many of us it was the first time we spoke about it since we left the combat zone. At the end the outing, we all took with us new friendships and the knowledge that we are not alone.
Fast forward a couple chapters.... today I have two daughters that are Doctors and a son who is still in school working on his degree. I have turned my life around and have become what I hope is now an asset to my community. My role with Freedom Alliance has evolved to the point where I can now help mentor younger veterans. I am currently trying to "pay forward" some of the generosity that was extended to me in my time of need. Dramatic as it sounds, this organization saved my life.
Aside from being VERY good at what they do, the entire staff of Freedom Alliance truly cares deeply for the veterans they serve.
Thank you to all of generous supporters and donors who make this possible!

I am a 100% disabled US Marine. Not a title that I'm proud of- it's something no one ever aspires to be. As a result of my service, I've had many physical and emotional road blocks. Freedom Alliance has helped my family and I work through these issues. The financial assistance was wonderful, but what really stood out was the emotional warmth, caring, and support they have given us. I can't say enough about the staff of Freedom Alliance- Ive never met a group of more genuine individuals. I've laughed and cried with this group who I now think of as family. Thank you Freedom Alliance!!

Freedom Alliance is family. They have taken me into their group and have helped me tremendously. It is amazing that they don't only gather a group of warriors but they also take the time to make sure they are matching personalities so when we all link up we get along famously making lifelong friends. Freedom Alliances stance on helping us is pure and driven. Outside elements are controlled and the group is allowed to focus on eachother or the amazing trip we are on. Please take a moment to thank this group because I can't do it enough.

Freedom Alliance has managed to take us to a structured event but allow us the leeway to not feel overwhelmed and rushed. The trip to Florida to fish a spectacular tournament was amazing in itself but the time allowed to get some good conversations going amongst my fellow wounded vets was highly beneficial. Pepper, from Freedom Alliance, was genuinely a great guy that truly cared about the cause. His obvious desire to paint a stress free environment was felt. The Freedom Alliance trip was one of those life memories and can't be forgotten.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

That is truly a difficult question as I cannot come up with anything that needs to be addressed.

Freedom Alliance recently took 15+ Veterans on an all paid trip to Costa Rica. We stayed in incredible Condos, were waited on hand and foot and were overwhelmed (In a good way) by the outpouring of support from the Local residents. Went Sailfishing, Ziplining through the jungle and enough food to make you gain 10 pounds. We were taken care of from before we left for the trip until after. I cannot say enough great things about Freedom Alliance. They are the real deal my friends!

The trip to Costa Rica was a once in a life time experience. I've never felt more welcome and comfortable Freedom Alliance made this happen for me and truly are some of my best friends. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for showing such support to all of us as combat vets.

Freedom Alliance isn't just a great organization, but a family. I began receiving a scholarship to help pay for college from the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund in the Fall of 2008, and not only did their assistance allow me to graduate debt free but their love and compassion for the scholarship students has no bounds. Their generosity with birthday cards, the scholarship retreat, and countless other opportunities to meet and connect with other scholarship students and FA staff foster a community like nothing I've ever experienced. Freedom Alliance knows how to serve those who have served and their families. Without their support I'm not sure where I'd be in my grief process. Words truly can not express how thankful I am for their friendship.

I'm a soldier in a Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Carson, CO. Back at the end of summer, I filled out a sheet asking for info about myself and kids. Honestly, I was in a bad place during that time (divorce, two surgeries, etc). Well, fast forward to December. I was darn near penniless from my divorce. I had to sell a treadmill to get money for presents for my three children. Then, for nearly a week, packages began to arrive. Upon seeing what was inside, I thought back to the sheet of paper I filled out, listing what toys my children liked. Needless to say, I was brought to tears by the overwhelming thoughtfulness and spirit of giving of the Freedom Alliance organization on more than one occasion. I cling to faith in humanity and the power of good. Freedom Alliance helped serve as a reminder of my belief. This past holiday season marked the turning point of the worst two years in my life. Freedom Alliance absolutely had a strong impact on that turning point, as I was able to give my children a wonderful Christmas. Thank you so much, and I know you'll continue to touch the hearts of many people.

This program is absolutely amazing! We were chosen as recipients this year and this program provided presents for our children that were were not able to. Not only that, but they went far beyond that in getting to know us and who we are. They have touched our hearts in a way that we will never forget. Thank you to Tina who I have come to know is a beautiful person with a huge heart for our veterans and their families!

We participated in their "Presents for Patriots" program this year!

We love how simple, yet personal the entire experience was. We truly appreciate this non-profit letting us participate in their program. Thank you!!
