I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the organisation Operation first Response. I had a mechanical failure with our only vehicle and had to use funds from my family food budget. I contacted this great organisation and within a week I had a check in the mail to help my family with food expenses I cannot explain the gratitude I have for them they have really helped my family in a time of need. Thank You.

There are many Americans out there who say "We support Our Troops". If you really belive in that, then you need to find out more information about this charity. When I came across Operation First Response I was amaized at what this organization does for our Hero's. It touched my heart enough to be my charity of choice.
My hope is that more people become aware of what this organization is doing and will think about giving to support them.
Thanks to all the staff and support system of OFR. You do an amazining job.

Words are not enough to express what I feel about Operation First Response. They literally are life savers. My son is an injured Iraq Veteran and they helped him out in a time of crisis with some financial needs. When you have veteran with Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that is dealing with added stress from financial burdens it can often lead to a bigger decline in health. So when OFR stepped in and took that burden off my son it not only helped him financially it helped him physically and mentally. It was a ripple effect. In March of 2011 I needed to travel to my sons base due to a health crisis he encountered and OFR are the ones who got me there in 1 DAY! Yes 1 Day. Operation First Response is truly a life saving blessing to our veterans and their families. I will always be greatful to all of them.

They have helped me and my veteran as well as many other people I know.

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

I would not change anything about them. I would however love to raise more money for them and get them more nationwide exposure.
