CNN has just aired a 2-part report suggesting fraud consisting of taking in millions of dollars for Vets and then sending Veterans organizations things they get for free and things that are not useful.

This "charity" spends too much money on fund raising and related expenses. It appears that only about 16% is used for the intended purpose.

donations to disabled vets. is used to make patriotic tote bags that are made in communist china. china then uses this money to make ak47 rifles and other weapons that are sold to enemies of the u.s.a. who use theses weapons to kill and DISABLE OUR FIGHTING MEN AND WOMEN. ASK YOUR SELF THIS QUESTION WHAT SIDE IS THE DISABLED VETERANS NATIONAL FOUNDATION REALLY ON ? look at the reviews given by other X doners. DISABLED VETERANS NATIONAL FOUNDATION IS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO EVERY VET AND CIVILIAN WHO HAS SERVED TO KEEP THIS U.S.A. FREE. i ask you to stop your donations till D.V.N.F. QUITS DOING BUSINESS WITH COUNTRYS WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THE U.S.A.

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

finding out that DISABLED VETERANS NATIONAL FOUNDATION is using donations in a DISHONORABLE WAY.

i would fire the staff persons who voted to use a communist country to make the items that are given to the doners and hire persons who really appreciate what our disabled veterans have given to keep this country FREE.

I received today a large package from this foundation. I do not want to open it and will return it, because I do not believe this is the way to make money for services.
By looking at the financials of this foundation, it turns out that only 64% of a contribution goes to services for the
veterans. While I have seen even worse performances of Veterans & Military charities (Intrepid Fallen Heroes...: 20%!!!!; Home for Our Troops: 33%!!!!), it bear to say that all the charities I support are easily over 90%.
Why these horrible performances from these charities???
The only one that I support (and just reaches 90%) is the US Veterans Initiative (aka U.S. VETS).

Look at the reason for the disproportion between the money used for administration and that which directly benefits the veterans.

They seem to waste money. Received a a 12X15" envelope containing a key chain and ball point pen. Not wise use of resources. How do they help our disabled vets?

"Disabled Veterans National Foundation" (1.888.782.2148) seems to spend an exorbitant amount of money on guilt-based fundraising. My elderly parents (on a fixed income) have received MANY solicitations for donations - often accompanied by "gifts" such as full-sized flags, blankets, calculators, etcetera.
