I was lucky enough to attend a fishing trip to Sitka alaska. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I truly do appreciate freedom alliance for providing me the opportunity to go.

My son, who is now a medically retired Marine, was severely injured in Afghanistan, in 2012, when he stepped on an IED. He lost both of his legs and was at Walter Reed Hospital for a year. While we were there, the representative from Freedom Alliance was one of the friendliest faces and was always asking how we were and did we have any needs. Freedom Alliance helped us financially when we needed to make some modifications to our bathroom before our son came home, and they blessed our family tremendously with lovely, thoughtful gifts for 2 Christmases! They continue to keep tabs on my son to make sure all is well, and took him on a hunting trip this spring. This is a wonderful, generous, caring charity that takes the time and makes an effort to find out what wounded warriors and their families REALLY need.

Freedom Alliance recently selected me to participate in a four day fishing excursion in Sitka, Alaska. Due to my diagnose of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I was skeptical about leaving the security of my home and traveling to an unknown place with unknown individuals. My wife, my caretaker, was mutually nervous about the trip. She was in constant contact with Tina Wholean, whom assured her that all will be okay. The entire trip was beyond my expectations. Upon arrival to the Sitka airport, the local Coast Guard and Sitka's Emergency Services (approximately 100 people) met us inside. They cheered, presented tokens & made us feel very welcomed and honored. I happened to stay & fish at Vonnie's Bed & Breakfast. The accommodations were amazing. The place overlooked the ocean and allowed for you to take in the beauty that God created. The meals were superb & made fresh daily. The boat crews were phenomenal and accommodated to all the warrior's needs. I feel very honored and blessed to have been chosen for this once in a lifetime opportunity. This opportunity greatly helped me talk about my daily struggles with other wounded warriors suffering with similar symptoms. This experience was beyond reproach & the memories gained will always be cherished. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I recently got to enjoy a fishing trip to Alaska with a group of wounded vets thanks to Freedom Alliance, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I am a retired Marine wounded in Afghanistan in 2011 and since that time adjusting to life at home has been a battle in itself. I am more than grateful to Freedom Alliance for bringing a group of vets together to share that comradery that we all miss so much and enjoy a week of fishing in a beautiful part of the country. Freedom Alliance will also be helping me to get a track chair this summer to help me get around my property, which is limited dude to my injuries. This is a wonderful organization that's committed to do whatever they can to help Veterans and they have been a blessing for this vet and his family!

Freedom Alliance is such a blessing in our lives. They have helped us with Christmas presents when times are hard. Alicia is a wonderful lady who wants to help and be there for you.
Tina is absolutely amazing and I'm so blessed to have her in my life. She nominated my Chris to go to Costa Rica with other Wounded Warriors and we are very fortunate that he was chosen. Pepper welcomed my Chris and gave him a once in a lifetime holiday. Chris had a fabulous time and it did him a world of good to get away and be with others with similar health issues. He made some special friends. Everyone at Freedom Alliance is so loving and they genuinely care. I cannot thank them enough.
God Bless, Jessie

Freedom Alliance is an amazing nonprofit organization that has made a huge impression on my family. They really make you feel that you are a part of a close knit family--because you are!! Pepper and Alicia are wonderful people and so very kind. Every event we have attended has been simply spectacular and we plan to continue attending. Thanks to Freedom Alliance my husband can now hunt in the woods again with his amazing Track chair and that helps him to feel as if nothing is different than before his accident. We were also able to spend Valentines day at a beautiful B&B with great people. I just cannot say enough great things about this group! -Lindsey

I had the chance to be invited to the grouper grapple down in Fort Myers Fl this past weekend. It was an amazing time and cannot say thank you enough for the opportunity to join so a fine event full of patriotic people. The way we we're treated was amazing to say the least. The people and hospitality was every where and was offered by everyone especially my good friend Pepper Ailor and Brian Peachey. With those two men logistically putting together the best weekend I have had in a long time. It really lifted my spirits and brought all of us wounded warriors close together. Thank you so much from myself and my family. Respectfully Sgt Sean Simmonds

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

Do nothing they are making a huge difference in the lives of hundreds if not more wounded warriors from all branches. They are helping them transition and get back to doing things they love and that is a very important thing in there lives.

I went out to smith mountain lake with the smith mountain lake striper club and pepper with freedom alliance and it was one of the best fishing experiences of my life. I am so happy and greatful for the chance to come out to this event. The weekend was so peaceful and was amazing to get out on the water with some fellow veterans and active duty marines and sailors to share stories and get that "therapy" doctors and base sorts and cannot give you. The house was amazing and pepper took awesome care of us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the chance of a life time to get out and meet some great heart felt people who just want to give back and get to know us. It was something I will never for forget. Semper FI Sgt Sean Simmonds

Freedom Alliance is awesome!!! I just got back from a 3 day fishing trip up to Smith Mtn lake, VA. I really needed it and it helped me greatly. I am a 20 year Marine almost ready to retire from WWBn East. Looking forward to doing more events with them and get out of my house. I never go out and don't have friends but when i get together with other vets though Freedom Alliance I can feel they are my family. Respectfully GySgt Lentz, Charles.

Just completed my 2nd trip with Freedom Alliance and I've got nothing but smiles on my face. This trip is like hitting a reset button on my life, allows me to clear out the past and have a fresh start at a new day. At the begening of the trip, you don't know anyone, but minutes into it you meet everyone and by the end of the trip you are hugging each other like you've known them your entire life. Thank you Freedom Alliance for that fresh start. Semper Fi!

Once again freedom alliance and those of smith mt lake Striper club have outdone themselves!
I am so appreciative of the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization. I had a great time just enjoying the outdoors, being on the water, catching great fish and bonding with all the guys!
Thanks again from the bottom of my heart

Freedom alliance has helped my husband open up about so many things he had just shut down about. They recently invited him on an awesome hunting trip at Cypress Creek Lodge in SC. (This was his first ever hunting trip) He came home in such a good mood, was so incredibly happy and kept talking about how much fun he had! (Got his first deer!) Think he found a new hobby that makes him happy other than just fishing! We are so thankful not only for this but for everything freedom alliance, and everyone involved, does for the veterans. Good to know there are still good people out there who appreciate what all the veterans went though to protect our country.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Donovan & Ashley Hancock

I was invited to participate in the Smith mt lake fishing trip this year & just want to say that I had a great time and am so thankful for the opportunity.
As my wife says all the time, fishing is oe of the only things that make me genuinely happy anymore. I feel like when I've got my line out, and I'm just waiting for a fish to snag my line that I can relax and be at peace, even if briefly. I suffer from severe ptsd & tbi and through the past year, it has really become even more of a struggle. Fishing helps so much, so again thank you to all who helped with this trip, it was awesome. Pepper treated us all great- hes very passionate about what he does. all the people who I met there were as well. Great trip, great commroderie, thanks again.
Semper Fi,
Cpl. Donovan Hancock
