MAF sent me a care package on deployment from a family member who gave them my name and address. Not only did they send it to me but they asked if they could send more and we have a lot of other Sailors on board that are expecting care packages now. I deeply appreciate the volunteers at MAF and I appreciate their hospitality. Thank you all!

We donate to this grass-roots organization because they are an amazing group of everyday citizens who supports our men & women abroad not only through the holidays but all throughout the year. Being a soldier isn't seasonal, it is a lifetime commitment and MAF is equally committed to each and every one of our brave and honorable soldiers. We love them and we love MAF. Thank you for all you do. You are proof that every good deed matters.

As a former Army Medic during the Vietnam era, I lost several "buddies".................

What our current military members do in the field places them in the same danger..........

Yet, they are willing to do their part to keep our great Nation free..........

Move America Forward provides an opportunity for us back home to express our thanks, in a very positive way, to those who are serving. By donating through Move America Forward you can show that you care.

Please help by providing the care packages that are so welcomed by those in the field. A touch of back home...................

Just sayin'..........................

I am a Vietnam veteran, having served two combat tours with the Marines. Guideposts was a magazine I read whenever I could. Guideposts, praying day & night, & especially GOD were the reasons I made it back .On the few times we were back in a safe area we would receive care packages & items from various organizations that really raised our morale. It's wonderful to know that people care.Being in combat is , without a doubt, the most grueling experience a young solder can endure - & to know that your country is behind you is so important for morale. Donating to America Moving Forward is a great way to show our troops we care. SEMPER FI-always faithful. John Keith-a Marine always.

Move America Forward does amazing work! Continuously strives to show appreciation to our military and send them little reminders of home. After volunteering at one event for a required school project, I will definitely be volunteering again! Very organized, thoughtful and inspiring individuals that make this nonprofit successful. The event I attended also included individuals from the Wounded Warrior Project. All around great experience and I would recommend to anyone wanting to give some time to a worthy cause.

I love supporting our troops through Move America Forward because I know how much they look forward to being able to enjoy some of the foods, etc. that come from "home." These are our finest young men and women, who are putting everything on the line for us, so we can enjoy the tranquility of our home front. The endure so much hardship, it's the very least we can do to try and bring a little bit of comfort into their lives.

Give your best to them.

I've been a member of Move America Forward for many years and I know they do tremendous work as I've gotten a number of thank you notes for packages delivered to troops stationed overseas. In my opinion the job they do is beyond great especially when you consider that so many organizations supporting our troops do so much less. This is a top notch group of people and I'm proud to support them.

Signed up my MedEvac pilot son for a package to be sent to his group currently in Afghanistan. Within days, I got an email that one had been sent. I'm so thankful. I worry that people don't realize our troops are still deployed and defending us. Am sending photos from Afghanistan. Thanks again!

Want to give a HUGE thank you to Move America Forward. I just got my package yesterday and it was full of good stuff. Snacks, Goodies, and extras that I can definitely use. Thank you so much. What you all do for us means so much. Often it seems like the folks back home forget about us. Knowing that your Organization and all the People that volunteer still think and care about us means everything.
Keep up the good work. It really does help, more than I could possibly express in a post.
thank you!
