I think this is a wonderful program. My three children were fortunate enough to receive grants for gymnastics for 6 months and they love it. They participate in other sports as well but this has turned out to be their favorite. I am so grateful for this program! Thank you!

I personally have never learned to swim and I have to admit that I am afraid of the water. I am 29 years old and have two amazing girls, Gaby and Ela. Since Gaby was about 3 years old, she became very active in swimming pools and my husband was not there all the time to stay with her and keep her safe. I wanted her to be active and not be afraid of the water like I am. I signed her up for the swimming classes during the summer but by winter we did not continue with them. Two and a half years later in Gaby's life daddy deploys and I am more nervous of her being in the water during the summer. I have a 2 year old toddler and it is difficult to keep on eye on two children with different interests and abilities. Thanks to Our Military Kids, I was able sign up Gaby for swimming lessons at one of the best, if not the best swimming school, in Reno Nevada, Silver Bear Swimming School. Without the grant that we received for swimming classes, her ability and her self confidence would probably have not been so positively improved. She loves the water, she loves to swim and she is learning things that would take me a very long time to accomplish. I am extremely proud of her and due to the great experience with Silver Bear we have continued going even after the grant expired. I see that swimming has given my daughter confidence in school and friends. Most important is the fact that swimming is a huge distraction from daddy's absence. I love the help my family received from Our Military Kids. Without the grant, I probably would not have signed her up in a swimming school of such level. Thank you Our Military Kids Organization.

I would like Our Military Kids Organization, to have available funds to continue with their services. Children are the most affected in a deployment. They are so little and the fact that they have to feel so much emotional pain when a parent leaves for deployment breaks my heart. You seedling a great job Our Military Kids Organization.

This is an outstanding organization that offers great support to the families of deployed Military members. I've gotten more support from them since I've been in Kuwait than I have from my Unit who is stateside and is supposed to check on my son/family on a monthly basis. My family has yet to hear from anyone in my Unit.

Our Military Kids gave my son a grant to help pay for his tuition at tae kwon do. Also, they didn't forget my son after that! I received an e-mail with another opportunity for my son to receive tickets to a Washington Redskins game and that made him even happier knowing that his mom was able to help him even though she's away at the moment. I also received another e-mail for an event that I followed up on from here in Kuwait immediately and was able to get his name on the list yet again.

I wouldn't change a thing! The staff has been really helpful when I needed to call or e-mail and they respond promptly.
