Reviews for Bunkers In Baghdad
i heard about Bunkers in Baghdad from a fellow golf buddy in the Navy. I wrote Joe Hanna before I deployed and asked what the process was. He got back to me within a day and I had 3 boxes of balls find me at FOB Union III within 3 weeks. In the process of building a 'driving range' so I can put the balls to work. The heat will break soon and I may even move it to the roof... smoke a few cigars and stripe balls into a net. What better way to pass the time?

We are deployed to Egypt for a peace keeping mission. I heard of this charity (Bunkers over Baghdad) thru fellow soldiers and friends. I email Joe and I had a response from him within 24 hrs of sending the initial email. Joe and his organization had the equipment package and mailed within a week of requesting the golf equipment. Thanks to caring people like Joe and Bunkers over Baghdad, soldiers will have a great time playing golf. It’s wonderful to know, there are organizations like Bunkers over Baghdad out there supporting our troops.
Joe and the rest of the team have done an amazing job by providing an escape from the daily stress and tempo of generating Combat Airpower!. Not only was his response to the request delivered in less than 48 hours, the package arrived in less than a week across thousands of miles! Awesome program and please keep up the great work!
I first heard of the charity Bunkers in Baghdad when I was overseas. A couple of other joe's were talking about how awesome they were and that it was a charity organization. I am an active duty recipient and I can't be more grateful. This will definitely get me started. Thank you!!
I heard about them through a friend and that they will send golf equipment to active duty members. I decided to try to get some for my husband since he loves to golf but has never been able to buy some for himself. Joe emailed me right back and communicated with me personally throughout the entire process. The equipment came today, and my husband was stoked! People like this are a dime a dozen. Thank you!!
Active Duty Marine forward deployed.
I was in contact with Joe immediately after I sent the first email. He was very kind and I could feel that he truly wanted to take care of my wishes. I am honored to call my self a supporter of his organization.
Active duty Marine serving forward deployed.
Mr. Hanna instantly responded to our request for support and the next day there were clubs in the mail. I know when they arrive they are sure to put a smile on the Marine's faces and help take their mind off things for awhile. It's wonderful to know organizations like this are out there looking out for the well being and moral of forward deployed troops no matter the clime or place! Thanks for all you do.
Joe and his team are amazing! They helped boost morale of over 320 deployed Soldiers at Bagram Airfield by sending out golfing equipment that enabled us to create an indoor driving range. By far one of the most generous and professional support organizations I've ever seen. Thanks Joe!!! Pics coming soon!!!

Best military charity that is working for the betterment of vets, wounded warriors and active duty military in the country today. They actually do what they say they are going to do. No bureaucratic nonsense to have to deal with- you speak directly with its President and they will take care of you. Best of the best.
Joe and Bunkers in Baghdad are another brilliant example of Great Americans going the extra mile for the men and women of our armed forces. I was surprised to arrive in Kuwait and learn that Joe had arranged to send numerous golf items to the troops stationed here. I never thought I'd be swinging a golf club during my tour here. what a great morale booster for us. I will definitely make a donation in the near future. Thanks Joe and company!
