I have had the pleasure of working with Operationward57 and Brittney with my FCCLA students from St. James HS in SC. We make the Amputee Teddy Bears for the soldiers children. My experience with this organization has been amazing. They are extremely professional and do so many wonderful things for our wounded soldiers. My students and I feel blessed to be a part of this organization as we help our soldiers and provide a comfort to them and their children.

I feel like 5 stars isn't nearly enough for what Op57 gives to the wounded community! Since my husband was inpatient at Walter Reed they have provided our family with so much not just in assistance, but helping my husband and myself reintegrating back into civilian life after injury. Brittney Hamilton (exec. director) does amazing work, and you can truly tell she loves what she does. It's not often we meet people who understand our life and also know how to help in a way that you don't feel pitied, but Brittney sets the bar high. Our first contact with Op57 was free hair cuts for those still inpatient. Then after retirement they have provided a wonderful Christmas for my family, even putting decorations on the out side of my home, because my husband can't. If you are looking for help, a sense of community, and people who really get you, Operation Ward 57 is the place for you.

Ladies and Gentlemen veterans and civilian counterparts, I want to share a story with you that I find gives hope to the thought of the kinder world we use to live in is making a come back. Yesterday I got on my computer down and full of defeat thinking that there was no one out there that would be willing to help my wife and myself fly to Detroit Lakes Minnesota for the Public Access Test to complete my service dogs training and certification process. See I received a service dog from Patriot Assistance Dogs in Detroit Lakes MN, last year for my PTSD. As a part of receiving my service dog Bobbi Ann I had to agree to come back in three to six months for the Public Access Test. Now my wife is my caregiver thru the VA mind you and she and I live on a fixed income to raise our eight year old son, so the thought of us shelling out a $1,000.00 for airline tickets was something we knew we'd eventually have to do because we made the 1352 mile drive from upstate NY to MN once already and it was extremely difficult and draining. But the day came before we were prepared for it to do the Public Access Test, we had been saving little by little but every time we'd get ahead something would come up and we'd have to use the savings. So yesterday I got on the computer at the request of my wife and applied to Operation Ward 57, by this morning I begun email correspondence with the executive director of Operation Ward 57 and they were going to buy two tickets, one for myself and the other for my care and wife. I began to cry I was so happy and relieved that someone else had the kindness in their heart to help me and my wife out. To put all this experience in a few words I would have to say simply amazing. Thank you Operation Ward 57 and God bless you and all you do for our countries Veteran population.

Operation Ward 57 was a life saver!! I had to fly to TX from WA to pick up my service dog and Operation Ward 57 took care of the rental car. :) The organization I had to get to was 2 hours from the airport and pretty much anything else.. so it was a huge relief. Cannot say enough good things about them!!!

I have donated many times to Operation Ward 57. At no time did I feel pressured to do so, only a desire to help wounded veterans. They were very transparent as to where my monies went. I see many wonderful stories as to who they helped. Makes me proud

It is my privelege to work directly with Operation Ward 57 director Brittney Hamilton to match Wounded Warriors needs with an agency that cares to make a difference. Thank you to all board members and volunteers who make a difference every day.
