AID OUR VETERANS INC
August 22, 2013

The President of this organization has passed away and the organization is now a complete shambles. The workers are more than likely doing the shows and pocketing all of the proceeds that are collected from the public. The headquarters in Baltimore is in foreclosure.

These crooks use money that they collect to get fast food at every show. Don't waste your hard earned cash, give to the Salvation Army. All of the management at SA are volunteers. All of the AOV people get a percentage of what they collect not to mention expenses and then there are administrative costs for running the organization. All in all I would say the vets get about 3%, if that. Give them a $5 and immediately $1.50 goes to the person you hand the money to and maybe some vet gets .15 cents. They beg hotel rooms and meals from unsuspecting chains and live high on the hog when they travel. It is one big vacation for the "volunteers"

None of these people are volunteers. They all get 15% of what they take in. The Director of Charitable Contributions, Suzette Steele gets 15% of what all of the workers take in and when she collects at a show she gets 40%. I have witnessed them at countless shows and they are a bunch of derelicts. At a recent show the AOV worker had tattoos on his head and arm for a bail bond company and was singing at the top of his lungs. He was later witnessed outside fishing all of the $5 bills out of the tip bucket and carrying the tip bucket in a bar while he was drinking. AOV supposedly gives beds to homeless vets and rehabs the homes of needy vets. I think the website says none of the collected funds goes to the rehabs. The rehabs happen when AOV gets Grants, oh and the President ,Thomas Conlan owns a remodeling company...hmmmm? Sounds like a good way to get new business for your business. Look up Suzette Steele and Thomas Conlan's records at Maryland Judiciary Case Search before you think of donating to this organization.
