This organization has been such a blessing for my family as my brother was in the Marine Corps for 5 years. This organization has a wealth of knowledge and the members are willing to do anything at all to help in anyway possible. I have been with this organization since they started and my relationship with them has lasted beyond my brothers enlistment and I will continue to serve this organization and do anything possible to help with whatever they may need or do. They are an Amazing group of people and the continue to do wonderful things for or Military.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life as they have been there through my brothers injuries sustained during combat in OIF and they have become a part of my family.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that they are willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done for our Military men and women and their families.

Although I am the Executive Director and one of the original Co-Founders of the group, I too have a story to tell. When my son went into the Marine Corps in 2003 I did not have a clue what was ahead. Meeting other family and friends on a regular basis gave me a chance to learn more than I could ever have imagined. This group became our "family" and have stood beside us through thick and thin. We too are "banded" together with bonds that will last a lifetime. It is a wonderful experience to lead our members with exciting projects, new programs and to become closer with them personally each and every day. This is an awesome group that truly believes that ALL things are possible when it comes to supporting our military men and women and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life when our son was severly wounded in Iraq.

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

find a way to serve our members better and make their lives easier during difficult times and deployments.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their hard work and dedication to ALWAYS get the job done.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I have a wonderful group of officers and board members who work hard for our cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Add more projects and programs that would assist our military men and women, veterans and families all over the globe!

Ways to make it better...

we could just reach more families.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Gaining new members without proper exposure and funding for projects and programs that we know are needed.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am so very proud to be a part of this awesome group and thank God I have had them around to hold me up and keep me going.
