Be careful - this organization is being investigated by the I.R.S. for taking cash donations and using them for personal expenses. If you donate real items, they will send the troops the items to maintain a valid appearance. However, they cannot account for all of the cash they received under the false pretence of helping our troops. This "non profit" organization is fake. Debbie Aznar has been arrested for theft in the past. Her husband has been arrested for several counts of DUI. These people cannot be trusted.

I was introduced to TRWB and its founder Debby Aznar through the Veterans Affairs campus in Portland, Oregon. Debby is a wonderful person who has sacrificed both her health and family for this country, yet she continues to give back to others (primarily active duty troops) but also reserve and separated members and their families. Debby not only provides troops the ability to meet performers at concerts but she also sends them care packages while they are deployed overseas and helps their families out with utility bills should they fall behind or become unable to pay them. Debby and her organization truly exemplify the American spirit. Debby's attitude towards others inspired me to join her organization and assist in "Thanking" our troops for all that they do.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Washington and Oregon State

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

recruit more people to help in this worthy cause.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the backing of our military troops by the local community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, Gracious and good spirited

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy alot of care packages and help alot of our troops and their families stay current on their bills while deployed.

Ways to make it better...

N/A

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of steady revenue (we need donations)

One thing I'd also say is that...

Everyone out there should volunteer in some sort of non profit organization be it TRWB or some other worthy charity.

I will never be able to thank you guys for the work you do with our troops. You sent my brother backstage to two concerts and lifted his moral. He has been to Afghanistan twice and all your packages and care that you show the troops are out of this world,thank you, thank you. Keep up the fantastic work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching what they did for my brother.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They really do care about our soldiers. My brother is now a DAV and they still want to help him.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wonderful

I just wanted to reach out and thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I really appreciated the hospitality and the honor of meeting one of my rock n roll idols, Ted Nugent. Mr. Nugent was very hospitable and made us all feel very welcome. Truly a night to remember. Thank you TRWB!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Neil Martin who organized the event for us Vets was very organized and seemed to really care that we all had a good time and made us feel special.

This is a real 501 c 3 working under there own license. There had run in with the Brookings- Harbor Redshirts. They had bad mouthed this non profit and made false statements. These are the same emails that I have answered. I think it is very childest fro them to post such negative items when they no NOTHING about our work with the troops. We have supported over 10,000 troops. Look for the new and updated web site. To waste time like this is cruel and does nothing for our troops.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working for them and seeing all that they have done to support our troops.

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

NONE they are honest.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Meeting some of the troops that they have supported and e mails from the troops.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

We are all service connected individuals

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build facilities to supports our soldiers coming home.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't the non truths that were putup. I shall ad all the emails to my new web site to show where the negative copmes from, it is under construction.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

We are all non paid, so sometimes we all run out of time to do set ups and Debby goes out every weekend and raises money herself. Rain, snow, whatever we have set ups to raise monies every week.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Please, the jealousy and non truths that have put out about this organization are all lies. You can call me ANYTIME. 406-868-6566 and I return all calls and e mails

I don't understand this chari bewarety. I have never been able to find anything but pictures on their website. I have emailed them for information and never had a response. What is exactly that they are doing with the donation money they have? With no real information I wouldn't donate to this charity. Sounds like a scam to me.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I met the supposed person in charge of this org. She came to our non-profit booth and wanted us to give her part of our donations if she worked the booth. She was told no. She got very upset with us.

I have not seen anything accomplished by this non-profit except posting pictures, which are readily available on the internet. I would be interested to know exactly what this organization has done and is currently doing to support our soldiers and veterans. I cannot find any link other than to donate funds.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

spoke to person who said she was the founder. Could not get any information from her about the support process.

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

I would like to see a contact name for this organizatiion, phone, email, a list of things actually accomplished and list of projects being worked on by this non-profit so donors will know their funds are being used legally to support troops and veterans.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

person who said she ran the non-profit

Ways to make it better...

someone would answer my questions

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

credibility

One thing I'd also say is that...
