I have had the pleasure of working with the Col and others at WWFS for the past 3 years in regards to our non-profit Operation Recover. We provide retreats & resources for wounded warrior families and the WWFS donated monies to help sponsor 2 of our retreats. Their generosity allowed 8 families to participate in 2 retreats we did in VA, 2012. I have found that working in the non-profit community you often encounter organizations that are unwilling to work together on projects or to help each other. Our philosophy has always been that we can reach more people by helping each other and referring our families to those who provide resources we don't. I am happy to be able to let our families know about other non-profits available and WWFS is a good one. Thank you for your support as we first started our organization and for your continued support. I now have the pleasure of working with this organization and team personally as well.

This organization was successfully sued by a real charity, Wounded Warrior Project. The court held that this group was receiving money that belonged to the real charity. I SUGGEST NOT SUPPORTING THIS GROUP AT ALL AND INSTEAD SEARCHING FOR WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT WHICH IS A LEGITIMATE CHARITY.
