My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Soldiers' Angels, San Antonio, TX, USA
I have been involved with many support organizations and most of it with our wounded warriors not only in supporting them but also public awareness of our heroes coming home. Soldiers Angels has not only done a lot for the wounded and their families but also those deployed and their families. As a First Sergeant deployed to Taji, Iraq they ensure not only I but those in my unit were taken care of and felt the love from home. When i arrived in country I had several large boxes waiting my arrival and this was after asking that they not worry about me. TO my surprise and pleasure of our folks we had a new coffee maker, mugs, coffee, sugar and various creamers. No more did I see my folks grabbing a cup of coffee to go from the DFAC; but rather folks waiting for me to fire up the coffee maker and get fresh ground coffee; no doubt we were spoiled by the love from Soldiers Angels.
I was adopted personally and the cards and letters made a huge impact of my moral but even more I posted them in my office and folks would come in just to read a card or look at the pictures various schools had sent. To say that SA made an impact would be an understatement. Care packages with letters, magazines, toiletries, and lots of snacks made it not only bearable for me and the troops but also for those that we were there advising and training.
One angle (volunteer) actually went to visit my grandmother that was in a nursing home outside of San Fransisco. They became friends and although I could not be there for the passing of my grandmother, this Angle was her friend and took care of her until she passed away. My daughter received cards and letters while I was deployed with words of encouragement while I was away but also letting her know how much her sacrifices were also appreciated. I know my family is not alone and that Soldiers Angels does so much to reach out to so many and their families, they do this without asking for anything back.
Patti and Jeff as well as everyone at Soldiers Angels have become family and I do all I can to give back when i am able. God Bless Soldiers Angels and all those that make a difference in the lives of our military families.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
family support, personal support and support of those that I supervised while deployed
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can't think of anything but keep on pushing and supporting our troops
