Operation Stand Down Nashville, Inc.
November 17, 2012

Operation Stand down performs valuable services for our homeless veterans by not only helping them with getting in off the streets, but with alcohol and drug abuse, job training and finding employment, etc. It is a fantastic organization with a wonderful leader, Bill Burleigh.

TENNESSEE FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION, INC.
November 4, 2012

The Fisher House Foundation is by far the best military focused charity. They received A+ ratings from the American Institute of Philanthropy and four star Charity Navigator ratings because the money donated goes to the focus of the charity, and not to salaries and overhead. I was first introduced to Fisher House through the recommendation of a soldier returning from deployment in Iraq. Once I was briefed on their mission and visited a Fisher House, I was totally sold. The veterans and their families of these recent conflicts are facing years of medical treatments, and they deserve a warm, compassionate environment where the families find support and encouragement from others in similar circumstances. Offering free lodging in a beautiful, safe place while a loved one is receiving medical care is what we should do for America's service members, veterans and their families during the stressful times of illness or injury.
