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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.
