I thought the package they sent to me was a little overboard..
Calculator, pad, pen and carry case. I wondered how they could afford this expense and do the work they say they do. This money could be better served giving to vets as promised.
I do have to agree another reviewer, this certainly appears to be a scam that lines their pockets, and give mere peanuts to the vets.
I would be very cautious......Wounded Warriors is a organization that really helps our vets.
Review from Guidestar
I called the 866 number and gave the operator all the information for a pickup. We put everything in the driveway and the next day, no one showed up. Called again, the operator did not have any record of us ever having called. Gave them the same information again, and the next day, no one showed up. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!
Anyway, I called the Salvation Army, they came like clockwork the next morning, hauled everything away, the driver was very courteous and even left a tax receipt.
What's wrong with the Disabled Veterans National Foundation. Either they don't need our donations or they have a bunch of imbeciles working their phones. Probably BOTH!!! Yikes
was gonna give but after 5 minutes of reviewing their past-i said nope-not gonna do it wouldn't be prudent.
not gonna buy m&m's and hand sanitizers - not needed
I can not believe this organization has the audacity to continue after being expose as to who they truely are. Your a fraud and should be shut down.
an unlikely donor
I would support any Congressional action to prevent those organizations that use Veteran causes as a way to raise funds for the enrichment of their own pockets while nothing or a trickle of funds go actually to the veterans. Absolutely shameful - this group should be shut down. An abolute disgrace - another chapter in the moral decline of corporate America or "making a buck" no matter what
Was donating monthly to this organization until they mailed a 'gift' of an American flag. The package had a "MADE IN CHINA" sticker on it. This is an organization that supposedly uses the donations to assist in locating employment for disabled American vets?! I've learned to rely more on Charity Navigator reports before future donations.
Review from CharityNavigator
Just a comment. Based on the reply to Senator Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Senator Richard Burr, the senior Republican on the Veterans’ Affairs Committee from the DVNF site here are the annual fund raising costs (%) for the last three years, for contributiosn of: 2009: $ 20,959,255
2010: $ 24,787,094
2011: $ 29,149,836, fund raising costs were: 2009: $ 12,606,167/$ 20,959,255 = 60%
2010: $ 10,772,550/$ 24,787,094 = 43%
2011: $ 9,256,075/$ 29,149,836 = 31%. There is a trend of sorts.

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.
