I continue to support Mike and his OnBehalf.org team because they are making a big difference in the lives of our servicemen and women. This non-profit works extremely hard to make every dollar count; they have so many hard working members and volunteers, it's heartwarming to see all they make possible for our vets in need. Top notch!!!

I have seen this wonderful organization in action and they are a dedicated bunch! Too often veterans and their families are at the bottom of the list when it comes to the offer of a helping hand. Although smaller than some other well-known nonprofits, OnBehalf.org is dedicated to assisting our heroes with many of the challenges they face. Fundraising can be daunting for all nonprofits but I have chosen to donate to this worthwhile organization because I am very impressed with their ability to make every dollar count! Diane M.

OnBehalf is truly a model charitable organization that supports veterans and their families. This past December, while conducting a search of New York's best charities, I came upon OnBehalf. I read about all the support the organization has provided to veterans. I regret taking so long to help.

I met Mike one beautiful Fall day trapshooting south of Boston. We struck up a conversation and I immediately sensed he was a special guy. He is kind, easy and fun to talk to, interesting and interested. Oh, and let me add....charming. I asked him about the shirt he was wearing and he told me about Onbehalf.org. SOLD!! I'd been looking for a way to get involved in a charity that helps our brave troops. I am so looking forward to organizing a fundraiser in my area. I also hope to find other ways to be involved. All donations I make in the future I will do with much pleasure and gratitude for the guys who make the most they can with every single dollar. The world needs many more people as patriotic, competent and sweet as Mike.

Where to begin? I've known Mike since we were freshmen in college. Even then he always was committed and involved in the community. Even at our apathetic college, he always genuinely cared about the well being of others and the world at large. His service to his country and continued service to his fellow veterans of this country is consistent with the Mike I knew even as a college kid. I was so impressed [but not surprised in the least] when I found out about OnBehalf.

Fast forward to today. I have been a Marine wife for nearly ten years. I have seen a lot of struggling from families in our Marine Corps community with these wars. Some of the families I know have been through eight, nine, or even ten deployments. We've lost friends to combat. We've had friends injured in combat. We have many friends who have not come back emotionally whole.

One of these emotionally ruined friends was the husband of one of the very first Marine wives to welcome me into the community. This woman gave selflessly to hold me up when my husband was attached to another regiment and deployed with two weeks notice. She has done this for countless others.

A few weeks ago, after retiring honorably this spring with 20 years of service and four tours of duty in Iraq, her husband took his own life in their garage. He left her alone with their three children without insurance or spousal benefits. She didn't even have the money to cover his cremation. In a panic, fellow Marine wives and I began contacting organizations and trying to spread the word to raise money. On a whim of desperation, I contacted Michael at OnBehalf.

Within days, they had a check out to my friend and had contacted local civic organizations to help. My heart is so full and I'm choked up just recounting this story. I had donated to this organization in the past, but usually donated to the Semper Fi Fund. Because of the quick and personalized response to a military family in need, I will now be donating to OnBehalf instead.

Thank you so much.

Mike saved my life in Iraq, and when I say saved my life, I mean he literally did! I believe that there is no better person to take action in such a great cause.

nyarkie........I continue to support this fine organization and truly wish I could do more. They are full of compassion and so sincere with every endeavor. The work they have done and continue to do for our Vets, makes me proud to be an American. My grandson recently enlisted in the military and because of his time, so far, I have come to understand so much more what OnBehalf truly stands for. Keep up the good work and God bless.
