I am the CEO of MilitaryConnection.com. We are one of the most comprehensive directories of resources and information for military and veterans. We provide all of this to our users free. We also facilitate partnerships connecting corporations with outstanding non-profits. It is amazing what can be accomplished when good people join forces to help others.
The best part of my job is the honor of working with many wonderful non-profits on an regular basis that put forth effort and energy to make a real difference in the lives of those who serve, past and present.
I have worked with Soldiers Angels many times on many initiatives. I also constantly send them requests for assistance for military and veterans. They never say "NO". It is not in their vocabulary.
I can tell you without a doubt that they are the "real deal". They work tirelessly to help military, wounded warriors, their families and veterans 24/7. They have a dedicated network of volunteers and nothing is impossible with these angels.
I also want to commend Soldiers Angels and especially their founder, Patti Patton Bader, because they are team players and work well with other groups. It is not about them but about helping our military and veterans.
Please feel free to contact me. I am in the position to know all the good ones/guys.
