Rating: 5 stars  

Our Military Kids was such a huge help and blessing to our family while my husband was deployed. They application process is so easy and they were very quick and responsive. My kids got to enjoy activities and new experiences that they might not have had otherwise. What an incredibly tangible way to help families of deployed soldiers. I can't say enough good things about this nonprofit.

This organization is the best nonprofit organization my family has come into contact with for military children! They have helped my 4 children go to scout camp while their father receives treatment for his TBI. I can't thank the donators enough. With out this organization and their donators these silent warriors of war; the children, would not have these opportunities. You all have truly touch my family with your generosity.

Our Military Kids funded our daughter's cooking camp this summer. It's given her confidence through learning a new, practical skill, and given us something we can do together as a family. I've noticed that cooking together is very relaxing for her dad, a wounded warrior with PTSD and chronic pain issues. I can't thank Our Military Kids enough for your support in our family's recovery and healing!

Military kids has paid for our daughters Color Guard, which is part of the school band. Our family is thankful for this amazing opportunity, especially while daddy is deployed. She is having lots of fun, keeping busy with this activity, which is helping her with the separation issues and making her feel positively connected to military.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts !!!!!
