I started helping veterans through the 03xx foundation about 4 years ago.
As a certified service officer I’ve been able to help transitioning veterans with navigating their way through the sometimes confusing processes of the VA. Sometimes just having someone you can trust for advice or to help walk you through something unknown helps in volumes. Having an organization that carries on the true meaning of brotherhood speaks volumes for the Marines that are affected and in need.
Great foundation and great group of individuals contributing to the Marine Infantry and Corpsmen brothers.
This is an amazing organization who embrace the culture of the Marine Corps Infantryman by never leaving their own behind. I was fortunate to make great contacts with a few of their representatives to assist me through my transition from the Marine Corps. I have and will continue to pass their information to any of my brothers in need!
This is an excellent top notch nonprofit who helped me greatly financially, and literally kept me from becoming homeless! They work in a speedy manner to ensure veterans are taken care of. The world needs more organizations like the 03xx foundation!
I have a good buddy who told me to check out this foundation! They do good things for grunts, because they are grunts. I’ve never needed help from them, but have seen the positive affect they’ve had on the infantry community though! It’s amazing to say the least!
My wife and I were experiencing some very harsh times in our lives. As a combat veteran, separating from the Marine Corps and now disabled, it became difficult to support ourselves and, three young children. With uncertainty and, despair, we were at the end of our rope. We became homeless. As California residents, it became a struggle trying to survive and, desired to return back to the Great State of Texas! One day, a fellow Marine and I were discussing my situation and, told me about 03XX Foundation and said how they helped him and could possibly help me as well. I thought, this could be the prayer we've been waiting for so, I gave them a call. I was contacted by Mr. Ryan Delaney (also a formal marine) genuinely cared about our family's situation. After reviewing my case, Mr. Delaney assured me they could help. Thanks to 03XX Foundation, we are once again... Proud Texans ! I am now passing on the name of your organization to others who are in need of your help. Thank you to all who have helped this organization stay alive in order to help other fellow marines. Your love and support is being put to great use to veterans and families like mine. Keep up the good fight and may the Lord continue you all.

Great group, excellent mission statement! The goal they have laid out is great, and they really put their hearts into their volunteer work! A+ experience.
The vet non for profit community is saturated with corporations turning profits off of the needy vet image. It’s nice to be a part of a organization that wants to help simply to help, and not to fill their own pockets!
I can’t explain how helpful these people are, they helped me in my time of need. I’ve never seen such compassion and dedicatiom to the grunt community as the faces behind 03XX Foundation!
It’s hard not to love what these guys and gals do! They are 100% volunteer and mostly vets themselves! True espirt de Corps!
I reached out to the 03XX Foundation for some transition guidance and they bent over backwards to ensure that I was helped and they continued to follow through until all of my needs were met.
I personally know most of the guys at the 03XX Foundation. Not only do they care immensely about their fellow Marines, but I've also known them to help out other veterans if the need arises. The words brotherhood, tenacious, persevering, aren't just words to them. They live and breathe them daily. The case management team is intelligent, well rounded, and knows what the hell they're doing. They're not civilians trying to make a difference and patch the problem. They possess credibility among their brothers as a result of having been there done that. They've ALL overcome adversity of some sort in post military life and it shows. These guys aren't your average group. They're steadfast and unwavering in their pursuit of making clients whole again; providing hope to those who are many times hopeless and helpless in their situation.

I want to take a moment to publically thank everyone at 03xx, this is a wonderful organization that helps not the veteran but their family.
I recently lost my son a Marine combat vetran very unexpectedly.
There were so many things going on around me that required my attention that it was hard to know which end was up.
Obviously this was the worst and darkest time of my life. Gabe was a God send checking in on me offering not only help and assistance, but in true "brotherhood" doctrine...love, compassion, and a willingness to help in any way, sometimes that meant simply listening.
My family and I are still pretty raw but we are mending and it's comforting knowing that the foundation is there to help us navigate the system. I believe in paying it forward and when I'm fully standing I will absolutely be available to assist them in any way possible.
Thank you isn't enough to express my gratitude so in true "mom" fashion...love to all xo
03xx is one of the best foundations ever. After I got out of the Marine Corps I struggled with finding a job and financially started to crumble. 03xx helped me re-structure my Resume as the one I had was not molded around anything the civiallian would understand. They also helped me finallialy with helping with a budget and getting me on my feet. I honestly don't know what I would of done if 03xx hadn't helped me out. They truly are an amazing organization that cares about their fellow Military brothers.
These guys helped me immensely when I was struggling to overcome a very difficult situation. I had pretty much no sense of my own financial situation, it wasn't dire, but it was definitely disorganized. I spent hours on the phone with them as they helped me untangle the situation and get me on track. In all actuality, it's really why I ended up on the very succesful financial/life path I'm on now. Very smart crew of guys.
As I transitioned from a job I ran into a few pitfalls that put myself in a financial predicament and was unable to meet various financial obligations to include rent. After detailing my situation with the gentlemen at 03XX and developing a plan, they were able to assist my transition and helped me get over those issues. I have also assisted 03XX in helping other veterans in the past.
I was in a dire situation in the middle of an ugly custody battle for my daughter. I was at the end of options and started to panic about the next step. I reached out to this foundation and they immediately communicated to me and reassured me that my little family will be taken care of. I never thought a foundation with strangers would be so committed and compassionate about veterans and their families. 03XX Foundation brought me peace and support which brought the assistance to win custody of my little angel. Without 03XX my family may have been seperated and who knows what would have happened. Simply put, I couldn't have done it without them. Truly an amazing group of veterans helping others with life's obstacles.
I had just finished university recently and was not finding anything that could cover my apartment and child care as a single dad. Reached out to 03XX and got support and 1on1 help from some fellow grunts further up the ladder. I also got some direction on helping staying on my feet. Landed a decent gig at Fortune 500 and am now able to start looking for those dream jobs in my field. Really appreciate the support and guidance that kept me moving forward.
I'll start my review with a little back story on why I sought out the 03XX Foundation. I served as an 0311 from 2000-2004 and was part of the initial force into Iraq in 2003 with Task Force Tarawa. After my EAS I had no idea that I could file for disability with the VA until a VA employee called me in 2008. I promptly filed a claim for multiple issues that I knew were service connected and was awarded only 20% for two separate items, the rest denied. I changed my VSO and appealed, that was denied, and eventually my appeal was sent to the abyss at the VA. Fast forward to 2015. My appeal was still collecting dust at my Regional Office so I sought out the 03XX Foundation just for some basic information on the appeal process. I was promptly contacted by one of their VSO's and he not only gave me information, he took on my case and got me back "in the fight" with the VA. These guys know what they are doing, know what being an Infantry Marine means and does to a man's mind and body, and most importantly, they care. I was able to contact my foundation VSO anytime, he was always there for me with answers and a solid plan. Now every VA case is different and mine is only one case, but after putting in work on my end and the foundation guiding me, I was recently awarded two of my denied claims from 2008 complete with back pay and my overall disability rating is now 70%. I intend to stay with 03XX Foundation for my new appeal and highly suggest you contact them for anything you have questions about. If they can't help you, they will find a person or group that can. I truely can not say enough about these guys, they are amazing people with a noble and honorable cause. I apologize for the novel of a review, but 5 stars and 50 characters just doesn't cut it for me. Semper Fi gents, keep up the awesome work!
