The problem with these organiztions is that is all about the story you have to tell. If you do not have a purple heart then forget it. PTSD alone will get you nothing the majority of the time. They need good stories in order to lure bigger donations for people. They will never admit that and you will many a story saying this is not true but it is. Case in point, houses seem to go fast while others linger forever. This is because they are waiting for the best story. If you do not have a purple heart do not waste your time. This comes from an insider who told me what really goes on.
