I am a spouse of an army wounded warrior and Jennifer Ohman has been so amazing with getting us involved with so much support with other spouses and wounded warriors who can relate to everything that we have been through. The freedom alliance has also donated $800 so I can continue my studies in college and we are forever thankful!!

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.

When my sister, Erin Scherer, began interning at Freedom Alliance I was interested to hear about all of her new and exciting experiences. It is clear that she has learned a great deal and has a newfound appreciation for the men and women who serve in the armed forces. I was glad to make a small contribution when I participated in a care package drive that Erin organized for a marine regiment in Afghanistan. At the drive I met Maria, a development intern and Marisa, a programs officer and was impressed by their enthusiasm and willingness to help others. Recently, I visited the office and was fortunate enough to get a tour and meet some of the employees. Their genuine passion and dedication for helping others was evident even though I was only there for a brief time. Everyone I met was very friendly, and there was no shortage of jokes or interesting stories. I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to get a glimpse of the inner workings of this impressive organization.

want them to spread the word so more people can learn about this wonderful organization!

I did not know what to expect when I first started interning at Freedom Alliance. I had heard of them and knew it was a good organization, but I did not realize how dedicated and passionate the people who work there are. Every day I see how much time and thought is put into every program Freedom Alliance has. There is such a strong emphasis on establishing and maintaining relationships with the people they serve that is unparalleled by other similar organizations. It is inspiring to see how excited the people at Freedom Alliance get when they are able to make a difference in someone's life, and working here has helped me realize that I want to spend my life directly helping improve the lives of others.

The work Freedom Alliance does is so meaningful and the people who carry out the programs really take pride in what they do. When a scholarship recipient comes in to the office to have lunch and meet the staff, the whole office lights up. When a Wounded Warrior mentions that the event Freedom Alliance hosted was the first time in a long time they were able to get out of the hospital and relax, their words are shared with the whole organization.

I am so grateful to have this unbelievable opportunity to work so closely with some of the nicest and most generous people I have known. I have learned so much more than I ever imagined in the mere seven weeks I have been here and continue to learn new things every day.

The service members and family members that Freedom Alliance aims to serve are so selfless and deserving of recognition for their sacrifices. It is amazing to hear their stories every day. And when Freedom Alliance wants to recognize and honor these sacrifices, they do so thoroughly and wholeheartedly.

Freedom Alliance is one of the best organizations in America, and it continues to improve and grow bigger and better every day.

The second week of work at Freedom Alliance, i had the opportunity to see a Support Our Troops event in action. I traveled to Smith Mountain Lake with some of my co-workers and had the chance to meet some Wounded Warriors. The event was one I will never forget. I realized how much preparation and planning goes into an event like that, and it was plain to see how the staff of Freedom Alliance did everything they could to ensure the soldiers and Marines attending had a relaxing and fun time there.

The only thing wrong with Freedom Alliance is that every American is not yet aware they exist!

Freedom Alliance has been an amazing organization for myself and my family! My father is a 100% disabled veteran. The organization has made it possible for my brother and myself to make it through college and achieve our dreams. In addition to the scholarship that we received, the staff of Freedom Alliance has been extremely supportive throughout my experience. They have even helped me to visit Walter Reed Hospital, which has been a dream since receiving my physical therapy degree. I have also had the opportunity to see first hand how caring everyone at this organization is. They truly care for everyone that they are helping!

while attending various freedom alliance events I have had the opportunity to see all of the families who have been given wonderful experiences through Freedom Alliance.

MAKE IT BIGGER! so that more people can be helped.

I attended the concert and was very proud to hear about the many families and students Freedom Alliance is helping. People need to check out facts before adding their opinion on where the funds are going. In 2006, 77 percent went to program activities, 2007 it was 81.5 percent and 2008 79 percent. Not to mention it was a great concert! There will always be people trying to tear down something that is good. Shame on you.

Hearing students in person talk about all the help they received from the organization.
