Freedom Allience(FA) has helped our military family programs above and beyond the "call of duty". Working in conjuction with the San Diego Navy MWR, Freedom Allliance has assisted our Individual Augmentee Program, Homecomings and special assistance to military members. Great People to work with.

The Freedom Alllance has provided some of our active duty military members at Hurlburt field a wonderful opportunity (s) to create new memories as families recently returning from Deployment got to enjoy a fabulous night out at an upscale local restaurant with loved ones. Thanks so much for providing a opportunity to make reintegration special!

Freedom Alliance is by far the best organization out there. I have attended 2 events with Kip West outdoors and Pepper (the Man) from freedom alliance and it was a blast. The way you make us wounded guys feel is unbelievable. These events help us overcome our situations that we have sustained during our combat tours and to talking with other wounded warriors helps cope with the situations in hand.. SEMPER FI
AND THANKS FOR EVERYTHING

The Freedom Alliance has been a tremendous blessing to my life. They have helped make it possible for me to be able to go to college and be able to focus on my goals without having this incredible financial burden. Over winter break I was privileged to be able to study abroad in Vietnam, exploring the different perspectives of the Vietnam War.  It truly was an incredible experience, that I will always remember. Driving through the country, talking to the Vietnamese citizens who lived through the war there, and seeing where the soldier actually fought brought the war to life for me and made me appreciate what I was learning about more than I could ever put into words.  Connecting with the college students there, also made me realize that even though this country has gone through an incredibly gruesome war and they are still recovering from it, their citizens still have hopes and reams of a better life too.  Without the scholarship that I received from the Freedom Alliance, there is no way that I would have been able to study abroad and have this once in a lifetime experience.   Thank you so much for all you have done for me!

These folks are incredible!!! Jennifer Omen and her staff came to our base and provided a wonderful dinner for 60 marines at the best restaurant in town. Most of our Marines that attended the dinner stated that they had not eaten at this restaurant before because it was beyond their means. This organization provided a turnkey event for our service members!!! Great Job! please come back to Yuma!!!!

Freedom Alliance has been my "go-to" support program for Marines and Sailors of my Battalion. They are always willing to think outside the box and provide assistance to meet the needs. The professionalism of their staff is commendable and it makes it easy to facilitate support.

WWe are just a small Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) lost as a small entity on a base where the priority is focused on basic training. The difference between a WTU and a Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) in terms of support is astonishing.

This was the conversation that sparked a changed
as a friend referred me to Freedom Alliance while we were attending Senior Leader Course in San Antonio, TX. He presented their organization as "providing free banquets". His was was involved with the Soldier Family Assistance Center (SFAC) at their duty station and had worked with Alicia Behm.

I am a Platoon Sergeant for the Warrior Transition Unit and just wanted to some support to make some great things happen for our Warriors. I am proud to have establish a strong relationship with Freedom Alliance through Alicia Behm because their support has made a world of difference to our unit in terms of boosting morale.

I called my friend Jason and thanked him for referring me to them! I told him "you know these folks are amazing, they do so much more than troop appreciation dinners".

I am very appreciative for all the donations. The troop appreciation dinner was a huge success and it was the first time we had ALL of our Soldiers, Staff, and medical personnel together in the unit's existence! I received positive feedback from almost everyone of how much it improved unit cohesion. The fact that we got to eat at Ruth's Chris Steak House made it that much better.

After explaining to Alicia of how isolated we were in contrast to bigger WTBs she offered to meet with myself and the Commander to discuss additional ways Freedom Alliance could support the unit.

Our unit is very involved with adaptive sports for our injured Soldiers. The two events we are most involved with are Ride 2 Recovery and Warrior Games (Soldier para Olympics). Freedom Alliance provided our cycling team of ten Soldiers with free cycling gear valued at $300 each. This gear is necessary for cycling and it helped us to persuade more Warriors to participate. It is not the fact that the gear is free, the fact is that it is an expensive sport to get into and having the gear available allowed us to get people on a bike by saying "you have to at least try it, let's go get your gear one and take a ride" and from there we now have teams set up to participate in the upcoming two ride 2 recovery challenges for the remainder of the calendar year. This is a major accomplishment for our unit because previously we were unsuccessful in the recruitment of our wounded Soldiers to participate in pretty much anything.

Next they helped us by sponsoring a $3,000 rifle that allowed one of our Soldiers to compete in the Warrior Games. The unit was not able to afford a weapon of such high quality to put it in the Soldiers words: "Before Freedom Alliance gave me this weapon I felt like I was bringing a knife into a gun fight, and if I medal in this competition it's going to be because of this new rifle". The Soldier placed in 4th place overall.

Alicia then called me asking if we had a Soldier deserving of a all paid for vacation. I told her I would query the Cadre and see if we had a good candidate. We selected an excellent Soldier who has been going through very tough times. Both he and his wife are experiencing severe medical illness which has placed a financial and emotional toll on their family life. Freedom Alliance is making it possible for the couple to go on an all paid for vacation to Florida with a $1,000 gift card to purchase on whatever they wish. I cannot even put into words how much this has meant to this Soldier and his family.

And we are eagerly awaiting another Freedom Alliance sponsored event, a organization day at the US National White Water Center, Charlotte, NC. We have a total of 44 Soldiers and family members participating in this event where we have free access to all park features, free lunch, free nanny services, and one free hotel night stay in Charlotte. The event is a team building focused event to help bond a unit that is going through a lot of change a stressful time.

I have worked directly with Alicia and feel extremely grateful for everything! Everything happens for a reason, and the support we have gained has been a Godsend.

It is hard to recommend any changes when everything has worked out so great. Alicia has been great and she has always taken care of everything in a timely manner.

Through working with Alicia I discovered what it means to be a true selfless person. Her volunteerism has sparked me spend a good majority of my time every in finding ways to help other people. I feel that our continued relationship has helped most of that come true and has given me a great sense of confidence in reaching out to other people as well.

I attended the Freedom Alliance event..at Smith Mountain Lake for the Wounded Service Members The trip was amazing and the hospitality of the staff and interns was amazing. We had a stripped bass fishing day, an archery tournament with professional instruction, and assistance from Bowtech
ProStaff members, as well as a Handgun competition with NRA instructors. It was truely the most theraputic and fun event for wounded warriors I have been on. We also all received Bowtech Solider Bows to improve our archery abilities. I would reccomend for that everyone looks into this program. The Freedom Alliance Foundation is one of the best organizations to assist Wounded Warriors, and the Family of Fallen Service Members.

All I can say is Thank You to the Entire Freedom Alliance Staff and affiliates as well as to all those that helped support the F.A. in any way!

Sincerely
Ryan Dohrmann

I found out about Freedom Alliance through my sister, Marisa, who works for the organization. But I experienced firsthand the good work they do when I volunteered at a care package drive organized by Freedom Alliance interns Erin and Maria. I helped Erin, Maria, and Marisa purchase items and assemble them into a bunch of care packages to send to our troops overseas. Just us girls put together about 15 boxes. We even packed a few boxes of goodies specifically for our servicewomen, including nice smelling lotions, figuring they might appreciate some items with a more feminine touch while they bravely serve our country.
I am so proud of what Freedom Alliance does on a daily basis for our brave servicemembers. Having met a few members of the Freedom Alliance Programs team, I can say with certainty that these people are dedicated to serving our military in any and every way they can. Not only are they hardworking, energetic, and lots of fun, but they're also compassionate and genuinely interested in honoring the service and sacrifice of American heroes and their families.

In my job as an Individual Deployment Support Specialist I work to support our Navy families and their mobilized service members. I head an organization of Navy leadership at our base who plan social events for our families. Freedom Alliance has been instrumental in assisting me financially in executing our social activities! They have purchased materials to support events such as: "Build A Bear", where the children created teddy bears and decorated T-shirts. They made it possible for our families to enjoy a family fun day at "Pump It Up" at the holidays. They purchased items so I could fill stockings and have Santa Claus come for a visit. At our most recent July 4th Fireworks Celebration, Freedom Alliance sent us digital picture frame keychains so that the families could document the event to revisit later. I am so grateful to have the support of Freedom Alliance ~ they are the BEST!!!!
