Molly's is a great concept but ran with too much emotion and lack of expertise. Funds have been misappropriately used and donations from companies for the group to hand out have been used far to often for some of the moms "kids." It has been reported that during a trip to san diego a group of molly's moms bought many alcoholic drinks for marines and sailors at a well known restaurant, half of which were underage. It was said that there was a bit too much partying and favoritism involved. There is a lot of bias involved which is somewhat understandable from a group ran by emotional military moms. It is a fantastic concept and a group full of big hearted people. I hope to see some changes in the future and their overall goal is a great concept.

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

Be much more organized and fair across the board.

This organization is absolutly great! We were out to sea for yet another deployment and packages started rolling in around four and a half months into it...with enough pillowcases to outfit our entire squadron of close to 300 people. Nothing says we care like a new pillowcases and a note from home. Thanks Molly's Adapt a Sailor.
