they either give to people that work for them and made friends with the higher ups like General Leroy Sisco, or if they feel they can profit off your photo. I was lied to by them for over a year saying they were willing to help me as Im a purple heart recipient deployed twice as infantry and have been fighting terminal brain cancer since June 2009. I was led on until after over a year I finally hear the truth that I was never being considered but know of several with minor injuries to receive homes. To be fair they never declare what process they use to determine who gets help with one of their homes but also feel that hearing about several people who were friends with them were promised a house before they even applied for one. But I guess thats life no one said it was fair, just don't like how they are not really held to much of a standard.

I was wounded in Iraq 11 years ago, I barley found had the strength a few years ago, to admit that I needed help. To admit to myself I was hurt. To accept it, I've seen my scars, yes I have seen the x-rays, I have read my diagnosis, but accepting it was the true struggle, learning that beating my disabilities was the wrong approach, rather accepting, embracing, living with them. Learning my disabilities are now a part of me, that they make me who I am now, that they make me unique, make me a part of a special brother and sister hood of warriors. I started attending events, seeking help, talking about my feelings, fears, going to the doctors, and at a WWP event, my AW2 advocate, told me about an organization, homes4woundedheros, and they have just been an amazing life saving organization. The attention, the kindness, the service provided by this amazing org, specifically Mrs. Kelly, was above and beyond. Never being a home owner, and being retired going to school and totally lost in my future, unsure of a career path. Homes4woundedheros has lightened my worry load and has blessed us with a home. A place to start fresh, and move foward. Time to finish school and look for a future for myself. I could go on all day about homes4woundedheros, and words will never express the gratitude I have for them, Mrs. Kelly's call brought me to tears, I damn near fell on the floor when she gave me the news. My heart skipped a beat my knees buckled, and I pinched the heck out of my self to make sure I was awake. From my little family to the great family of homes4woundedheros, we appreciate and love you all. You have provided us with a tremendous unbelievable, opportunity, gift, blessing, a home. A home to watch our kiddos grow, a wall to mark the progress of they're growth. A backyard for birthday parties year after year. A kitchen to teach my kids to cook and have holiday dinners in. A room for my kids to come home to during college breaks in 15 years, the same room they grew up in. Thank you H4WH, you are my families, angels in disguise.

After my husband was injured in Afghanistan in 2010, our world changed. 5 years later, foreclosure (due to his injury/ being so far away from help) we were blessed to stumble upon military warrior support foundation, we found a home where we are from and our family is close by. We applied for it, just hoping/praying. Well today, we got that amazing call that we were awarded this beautiful home. My two kids will grow up in a beautiful home near family and friends and we wont have the stress of not being able to have a home due to foreclosure. We are so excited to be part of this family and so blessed. Thank you again MWSF for all that you do, not just for my family but for all the others you have helped, You are an amazing organization and the staff is so friendly!! Thank you Again!

I am a disabled veteran who has never had the privilege of being a home owner. But thanks to the Military Warrior Support Foundation I am now a proud owner of a beautiful home in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. This was the best gift a person could ever receive, and not only did they give me a free home but they also put me on the Today show with my favorite celebrity Darius Rucker who gave me free tickets to one of his concerts. Words can't express what this means to me and my family, thanks so much to all of the staff at the Military Warriors Support Foundation.

I am a Gold star wife and I was just blessed with a house in Georgia! I just got the call this morning and I couldn't be more thankful and happy! The whole staff is friendly and amazing and willing to help and answer any questions you may have. This is a wonderful organization! Everything that this organization does and stands for is wonderful and is amazing how they support the military wounded warriors and gold star families. I am happy to be a part of the MWSF family.

They have been great to us! They have once again allowed us the ability to have stability and a home that no one can come and say we need to leave or anything of that sort. We are blessed to be apart of this organization. Thank you for what you guys have done and do for us and our families. You have given me something that not a lot of my brothers and sisters have...

They all pick and choose which people they wanna help, some get a lot most get nothing. I would say to donate money to a non profit that actually helps a vast amount of wounded veterans and not just a select few. I was told to fill out an application for a house several times and its not exactly easy to do because they want a lot of info. I gave them everything they asked for and I have not heard anything from them at all except once by a friend that works for them saying I needed to reapply. Im a combat wounded purple heart recipient fighting terminal brain cancer so maybe they just don't see the point in helping me.

I would like to thank Military Warriors Support Foundation and Bank of America for awarding me and my family a mortgage free home. That is by far the greatest thing anyone or any group has ever done for us. We have been in our new home in Semmes, AL for right at a month now and we are still blown away that this is actually our home and not one we are renting. I am a Purple Heart recipient of OIF. My duties overseas was a job I did with pride because I was helping secure the freedom of the greatest nation in the world. I was willing to lay down my life and after many close calls and numerous fire fights I knew my life very well be taken but I never thought twice about giving my all nor did I ever have any regrets even after I was wounded by a bomb. It makes me feel great that there are wonderful organizations like MWSF and businesses like Bank of America that would care so much about an ole wounded veteran that you would give my family our dream home in a wonderful community. Thanks a million times over to everyone involved and all outside donors from the bottom of my heart. We will cherish our home, make great memories, and start new family traditions here thanks to all the generous citizens who made this possible. It's for kind Americans like yall that I would have proudly given my life to secure your freedom.
