Review for SUPPORT THE TROOPS INC, Wesley Chapel, FL, USA
Bob Williams and his amazing team of volunteers provided outstanding support to me and my soldiers while deployed to Iraq in 2010. I was so impressed that my family and I visited their location in Wesley Chapel, Florida to personally thank them for their support and to see their operation. We were so humbled by their dedication to our deployed troops and the efficiency by which they carry out their mission, that we became donors to their cause. Fast forward three years and I find myself back in Afghanistan for the second time and they have continued to amaze me with the size of their CARE packages and the quality of the items that they provide. We continue to donate to their efforts so that more of our deployed troops will be able to experience the joy of receiving some of their packages. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob as he works to recover from an injury suffered while building packages to send to our troops!

Review for Boy Scouts of America National Council, Irving, TX, USA
I have been a Volunteer Scout Leader for the past eleven (11) years and believe strongly in the principles and values that Scouting teaches our young men. Over the past 11 years, I have donated thousands of hours of my time and tens of thousands of dollars to our Troop, District, and Council, which brings me to my primary concern. The Scouting Executives at the National Level and Council Level are highly overpaid and every dollar that is going to them is a dollar that could benefit a young boy. With the number of retired executives in this country that have the expertise to run an organization of this magnitude, I find it hard to believe the we can't find an all-volunteer group of executives to run BSA in a manner that exemplifies "A Scout is Thrifty". There are many executives in our great nation who have the personal resources to run their organizations without a salary, simply for their love of the organization. I would suggest a nationwide search for a wealthy retired executive who could run the BSA and keep the funding focused on the Scouts.
