The trip to Costa Rica was a once in a life time experience. I've never felt more welcome and comfortable Freedom Alliance made this happen for me and truly are some of my best friends. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for showing such support to all of us as combat vets.

Freedom Alliance definately helped me out with my combat stress. I was able to relax and hang out with fellow brothers of mine who were able to share similar storries with me and not have to worry about a single thing while on a fishing trip down in Fort Meyers Beach, FL. The people who run Freedom Alliance, and set everything up, and do all the behind the scenes work, make sure everything is taken care of for us combat wounded veterans and active duty military. I had such a great time. It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. No stress at all. Everyone was very helpfull, and kind, and polite. I would definatley recommend Freedom Alliance as one of the best if not the best organizations for combat wounded vets just because they tend to deal with you on more personal level and they are more proactive with the military. Thank you Freedom Alliance for allowing me to enjoy myself and have a good time and have fun with my brothers.

Freedom Alliance has helped our Marines numerous times. Utilizing volunteers from within the military is a great addition as many Marines want to volunteer to help fellow servicemembers. I appreciate the fact they coordinate events with simplicity and always lend a helping hand.

My experience with Freedom Alliance was nothing short of extraordinary. In all my volunteer work, I have never witnessed an organization more efficient or more dedicated. Their work towards helping military service men and women and their families is remarkable and highly commendable.

Freedom Alliance is an outstanding organization! Sometimes it's hard to keep up on all the volunteer work that they do, but once I'm updated I'm usually left speechless. They work so hard to be there for everyone who has served and even those victims of Hurricane Sandy this past weekend. Their continuous efforts for others is mind blowing. What really pulled me into Freedom Alliance was their persistence to always find a better way to help. I can't think of a better non profit organization to associate myself with.

Freedom Alliance is an expertly run organization that provides a large amount of community service to Veterans and Wounded Warriors. From their own summer programs like the Military Leadership Academy to fishing trips and vacations for Veterans, Freedom Alliance is a fantastic company that is incredibly supportive of the military and its members. Thank you too all those who run and volunteer in their ranks

I am a retired Marine who has been privileged to put Freedom Alliance in touch with several active duty Marine Corps units who have young Marines, many with families, who are continually deployed. They have, at no cost to the Marines, provided dinners at places like Ruth Chris Steakhouse for the Marines and their spouses. In fact, they filled the restaurant will nothing but Marines and their families so they could enjoy a nice meal (that they normally could not afford) as a way of saying thanks. Additionally, they have sponsored concerts, surfing lessons, and other events that serve no other purpose than to say thank you to our Marines and Sailors who serve our country.

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

Feedback from many of my former colleagues has been tremendous. There are so few opportunities like this for the young men and women who serve our country, that organizations like Freedom Alliance should be recognized for the support they give our troops.

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

I would find more donors and contributors for this organization because they do good work, especially for the people who are most often overlooked.

My husband’s a soldier with the 1-174th AD Battalion and they are deployed to Iraq. I am the Family Readiness Group Leader for HHB and our Radar teams. Freedom Alliance has helped us to send care packages to each of our 300 soldiers and the 100 sailors attached to our Battalion. We shipped 475 packages after our first packing party and we shipped 450 packages our second packing party. Freedom Alliance paid for all our shipping for the packages shipped to our soldiers from these two events and they are preparing to pay for a third shipment of items to our soldiers. They are an amazing group who help us support our soldiers as they completed their mission. They are an amazing organization!

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

Freedom Alliance is one of the best organizations I've ever worked with. From being a part of troop appreciation dinners & benefit concert tours to observing office time & policy writing this team literally breaths supporting the military in every way possible. They are great people with hearts that are bigger than most and wounded vets, active military and military families certainly have the greatest of advocates in Freedom Alliance.

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

spending time with troops and their families that have benefited from the services Freedom Alliance provides.

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

get more funding so that more troops can be helped.

Our Brownie Troop in Knoxville TN voted to send "Gift of Caring" Girl Scout cookies to USN Seabee service members deployed to Afghanistan. We partnered with Freedom Alliance to accomplish this mission. By asking customers to purchase and donate "Gift of Caring" cookies, we collected 170+ boxes of Girl Scout cookies for USN Seabee men and women. Freedom Alliance assisted us by funding and preparing pre-paid, pre-addressed postage labels and customs forms for USPS flat rate, military APO/FPO boxes. Our partnership with Freedom Alliance allowed the Brownie members to focus on selling as many "Gift of Caring" boxes for the troops as they could. (Girl Scout rules prohibit soliciting funds for postage for "Gift of Caring" boxes; only cookies can be purchased and donated.) Interaction with staff on a national and regional level was efficient and professional. Throughout the entire process -- from my initial inquiry to the mailing of the cookies -- I was warmly received, a willingness to help was ever present, and ideas were exchanged in an environment of teamwork. I would also like to extend a compliment to Alicia B., for her excellent service and skill sets. Our Brownie Troop (now Junior Girl Scouts) would parnter with Freedom Alliance again on projects such as this one or possibly others of a different nature in the future. My experience with this organization and its staff was extremely positive.
