They were a huge blessing and help to our family. When my husband was given the go ahead to be allowed a meal other than hospital food, they brought the whole family dinner. They also provided my husband a much needed haircut in the hospital. During our stay from June - October at Walter Reed they were an awesome group of people that I always knew I could go to if we needed anything. Everything from a hug and an encouraging word to items we needed for the apartment or things to keep the kids entertained. Whatever we needed they were there for us.

I am a disabled veteran and single father. Due to an old student loan being paid from my disability before informing me i fell into a hole that just being late on rent within the month had me facing eviction. I literally was at whits end when I was told about Operationward57. After making contact and filling out the application. They were able to help make an impossible situation, hopeful and helped when others are income based and disqualifying. Eternally greatful!!!

My husband was wounded in Iraq in 2004/2005 and when he got out of the Army his conditions kept worsening. He became unable to work anymore about 3 years ago and we have barely been surviving on my income alone. Appliance replacements and medical expenses have begun to drown us financially and put us behind on laying bills. The payment on our electric, gas and phone bill really helped us start recovering from the financial bind we were stuck in. Thank you so much for everything yall do to help veterans and their families make it through difficult times!

I am a disabled veteran, residing in a rooming house. My income is limited and I am also a student. Operation 57 sent a $150 eGift Card to use at Walmart or Sams Club, The gift came at a perfect time and it will provide a Thanksgiving meal for my family and I. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!!!

Operation Ward 57 is an Amazing Organization! We were in need of a vehicle repair which was over $400 and all we had was just that amount in which that would've left us without groceries, gas(until the end of the month) and a Meal for our Thanksgiving dinner. So I reached out to the Organization and they approved us to have our repairs done, but since we already had took our last to pay for the repair they sent us two Walmart gift cards via email totaling $400. It was such a Huge Blessing to our Family. We Truly appreciate all of the help and support that we gave received from them. Such an Awesome & Amazing Organization! Thank You Operation Ward 57!

I just want to say how grateful I am of this Non-profit program for helping my husband and I this month. They were able to send us a grant to pay for our child's daycare costs. My husband is currently being treated for his PTSD away from home and its been difficult for me to handle everything all on my own. From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you and GOD BLESS.

After returning from a deployment, finding a new job has been more difficult than anticipated. I have been out of work for almost two months and was looking for an organization that assists with some basic living needs. Operation Ward 57 came through for my family when I fell upon hard times. They were very quick to respond and fill a need. Even though my request was submitted close to the weekend, Ms. Hamilton replied extremely fast with a decision to help. Most would wait until the weekday, but not Ms. Hamilton. Thank you for your kindness!

I was introduced to Operation Ward 57 from another wife of a wounded warrior - my husband has been in the Army 19 years and is in the MED Board Process - we had a few financial challenges as some changes were made to Tuition Assistance that effected us over 3 plus months and our vehicle needed tires - with our allotted money having to be redirected the bottom fell out of our already tight finances - this very stressed out wife lost her footing and Operation Ward 57 met me where I needed them - they sent a payment to cover our electric and water bill - and continued to reach out to other resources to see if we could get some additional relief - just knowing the electricity and water will continue allows me to focus on trying to juggle the rest of this family of sixes daily needs - God Bless Operation Ward 57 - thank you for treating us so kindly during a time when we do not feel great about the situation we find ourselves in - I have a hard time talking finances with my husband with his health situation, so it all falls on my shoulders - it was a breath of fresh air to have someone to reach out to who's actions make me feel like family trying to help!
