Review for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, Annandale, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For the past two years I have volunteered for H4W at various racing events, and I am still continuously impressed with the depth and breadth of the organization and its commitment to improving the lives of wounded servicemembers and their families. I've seen and heard the difference that H4W has made, one veteran at a time. Few organizations are also as good at maximizing the volunteer experience. When I volunteer at an H4W event, I know that, whatever the task I am asked to do, it will be meaningful. That alone is thanks enough, but the H4W staff is generous with their gratitude. So are the wounded veterans that H4W sponsors. Their strength never fails to inspire me.

Review for HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS, Annandale, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently volunteered to help with Hope for the Warriors' hospitality tent at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. I cannot say enough about how wonderful the experience was. Even at the crack of dawn on a freezing morning, the H4TW staff was very welcoming and extremely organized. As the day progressed, that preparation became even more evident -- with any contingency that arose, they knew exactly how to respond. I point these things out because as a result, the H4TW staff was able to make efficient, meaningful use of me and the other volunteers. I had no doubt that I was needed, and that my time was valued and appreciated.

Ultimately, though, the day was about the wounded warriors participating in the Marathon thanks to H4TW's generous sponsorship. We were there to offer the veteran participants the best service that we could. That is what H4TW is all about -- giving back to people who have given so much in service to our nation. Meeting them before the race, cheering them to the finish, and talking with them afterward was an absolute privilege. Thanks to H4TW, I had the opportunity to hear their stories, share a few of mine, and strive to make their race day as good and memorable as it could possibly be. It is certainly a day I will remember for years to come.
