Hello, my name is Jason and I'm a recently retired Veteran of 23 years, serving in both the USMC and U.S Army. Since returning from Afghanistan in 2012, I have started to really open my eyes to a major problem occurring in my world and that is suicide. This past 3 years I have lost 4 brothers in their fight with PTSD/Depression, and every time I reflect on it I ask myself the same question: could I have done more to help. The fact is you can be there for them only so much, eventually they are going to make the decision to either finish the job or seek help and that's where Warrior Thunder Foundation comes in. They provide the resources for that veteran to find the help they are looking for as well as providing other wonderful benefits as well. Fund raising, clothing for the less fortunate, education relief, and sponsorship. After my tour in the "Stan", I went looking for ways to keep my edge and found Obstacle Course Racing. I immediately got hooked. Last year I participated in the grueling 24 hour event of Worlds Toughest Mudder. I completed the event but didn't do as well as I wanted to. This year I wanted another shot of reaching my 50 mile goal and Warrior Thunder Foundation gave me that shot by sponsoring my registration and training. With their help and support and my experience from last year I feel that my goal is well within reach!!! Thank you Darren and your outstanding staff for all your help with me and most of all my fellow veterans!!

Thank you Darren for sending those flying tying kits. Keep our heads distract is not easy. In April I had a daughter with Pierre Robinson sequence syndrome and micrognathia. Since I'm gone my wife has to deal with everything while I have to be focus on the mission, it's really hard but tying my flies in the middle of nowhere or in my 24 hours shift kept my head straight and out of trouble.
Thank you for what you did and thank you to all this people that always are behind you make in us the most luckiest soldiers.
When my family needed help, the Warrior Thunder Foundation went above and beyond to assist us. If were not for them, it would have been very hard for us all to get together during a family emergency. I have never felt so humbled, nor experienced such outgoing and selfless individuals. In the future, I will look to champion this great organization in the hopes that others will be made aware of the wonderful work they are doing. Thank you, Warrior Thunder Foundation!
This man, SGM DTB as well as Warrior Thunder have provided life-changing support as well as mentorship. Warrior Thunder sponsored the training and cost of my guardian angel, my service k9 Freedom von Diamond Match. Together we push ourselves to improve on a daily basis. Freedom is the physical embodiment of all the good that still remains in this world.

When I needed help, the Warrior Thunder Foundation stepped up, without hesitation. My family and I cannot thank them enough for their hard work, dedication and passion for helping soldiers and families. In a time when others have turned from assisting, they are there to shelter you through the storm.
Outstanding Organization!!! Retired after 20 years of service and was diagnosed with PTSD. I looked into purchasing a service dog to help me deal with my new life and condition but the cost was just to high for me to take on at this point in my life so the service dog trainer said I could contact the Warrior Thunder Foundation to see if they would be able to assist me, as they assisted another local veteran with obtaining a service dog in the past. I am so grateful to have been given their information. The Warrior Thunder Foundation got back to me right away and before you know it, they decided to sponsor my Service Dog Viper for me!! He his already helping me to cope in so many ways. Can't thank you enough for the difference you have made in my life Warrior Thunder Foundation!! From a grateful veteran.
Warrior Thunder bar-none is 100% in their dedication to helping veterans and their families. I can't say enough good things about this organization, and every penny that they collect in donations is passed along to veterans/family that are struggling. As an former employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Warrior Thunder exceeds in their commitment to improving the quality of life for the veteran and his family, they keep their promise. There are many foundations that have "we help veterans" stamped all over their mission statement, but very few actually do. Warrior Thunder stands alone in its continued and adament commitment to stay true to who they are. Thank you SGM Bean and the volunteers at Warrior Thunder, for all that you do. Be blessed. ..

This is a great organization. I am a soldier with terminal cancer, and this organization keeps helping me out covertly, behind my back (I don't receive charity well) without any interest in receiving credit. The board members have helped me stay focused to keep my spirits up. Further, they are always providing opportunities to my young, single Soldiers. They care greatly.
We would like to thank the Warrior Thunder Foundation for helping us in our time of need. We had applied to other organizations and no one seemed to be able to help and Warrior Thunder Foundation was there and did not hesitate to help out a veteran in need. My husband and I hate to ask for help, but at the time we had no other choice. We would definitely recommend them to other veterans in need. Thank you for being there when we needed it most! If it wasn't for you we would have probably lost our only vehicle to get my husband back and forth to his VA appointments and you saved us. Thank you very much!
The Warrior Thunder Foundation quite frankly saved my family and I when we were in dire straits and they did not hesitate to assist us which we were in need. This foundation took action when other so called organizations who claimed they help veterans and there families in need seemed disinterested. I would and have talked to many veterans of this foundation and told them not to hesitate to seek help if needed and they make it easy with their prompt response. I had no idea and was very hesitant to ask for help but the Warrior Thunder Foundation made it easy and made me feel welcome and they were happy to help which not to be dramatic but helped save us from possible home loss and many other bills that were in danger of causing us to live in the dark and lose our only vehicle. This organization is and was a gift to my family and I and I always will be grateful for the assistance they rendered.
