My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Freedom Alliance, Dulles, VA, USA
I was medically retired in July 2008 after 17 years in the military and since then I have participated in a number of disabled veterans groups but by far Freedom Alliance has made the greatest impact in not only my life but my family's lives as well. I was passed over by the Wounded Warrior Project more times than I care to count and there is nothing more hurtful than being ignored by an organization that is supposed to be there to help you. I came into contat with Pepper Ailor from Freedom Alliance earlier this year on a turkey hunt and because of that chance meeting I've experienced life-changing moments in my life and I also gained a lifelong friend in Pepper. I've never met a man more dedicated to helping other disabled veterans than Pepper. He sacrifices his own time to attend to others. He never judged me or treated me differently, but what he did was genuinely care about me. Pepper also helped me get a grant through Freedom Alliance for my power wheelchair lift for my truck as my insurance left me with a sizable deductible. Freedom Alliance, to me, is the most caring disabled veterans organization and with their smaller events I not only get more individual attention it also helps me deal with my social issues instead of being overwhelmed and withdraw as a result. I've learned that Freedom Alliance isn't about giving gifts and "dazzling" people with expensive things...they are about the people which is vitally important to actually change lives. They have changed my life for the better and for that I'm very thankful for finding them and meeting Pepper.
