I chose to make a donation to the ASMBA Star Foundation in memory of my father who was a Naval aviator during the Vietnam war.

I also know the work that the ASMBA Star Foundation does to support those veterans. Watching the videos on the web site gives a great testimony to the dedication of this foundation.

I wholeheartedly recommend supporting the ASMBA Star Foundation to anyone who wants to invest in the recovery of our veterans.

ASMBA has supported the nonprofit I work for with grants for several years. The veterans served by Operaiton Stand Down Nashville, Inc. (OSDN) have benefited greatly by their support. Because of their support, several of our transitional homes were able to be remodeled. As an organization that serves only veterans, we are proud that ASMBA is a foundation that also support veterans. We are very grateful for their quick response and follow-through on meeting the needs of organizations serving veterans.

We at Little Patriots Embraced have been able to continue our programs and have helped many military families with the generous support of the ASMBA STAR Foundation Grant. Due to receiving this grant we have been able to assist these families with childcare expenses and tuition for the children to attend classes that were of great need to them. Also in assisting mothers with tuition expenses so that they could advance their skills and provide additional income to their households. In the past we have also received funds to assist with our Project Bear Essentials Program that helps with relieving emotional stress in children due to deployment of a parent. We could not have done it without them! Thank you! Thank you!

I am Gold Star Mother Dorine Kenney, the Founder/Executive Director of Jacob's Light Foundation, Inc . We are a grateful recipient of a grant award from ASMBA STAR Foundation. Jacob's Light sends care packages of necessities and comforts to deployed American troops. Because of ASMBA STAR Foundation's grant award we are able to buy much needed supplies for our heroes. They are a wonderful organization and are a pleasure to work with. Thank you ASMBA STAR. Keep up your great work!

ASMBA Star Foundation is one of the few Foundations that truly "Get it". They know how to give back and support the Troops. Through our Non Profit, Project Sanctuary, we have been able to serve 212 military families. Not only is their support invaluable, but their encouragement and passion for our families is second to none. Professional yet personable.

The ASMBA STAR Foundation has been our most consistent and strongest supporter since 2009. Our organization's mission is to improve the quality of life for OEF/OIF combat wounded veterans by offering them activities that strengthen their physical, cognitive, social, and emotional functioning. It is largely through the support of the ASMBA STAR Foundation that we have been able to offer rehabilitative and recreational therapy programs to combat wounded warriors. We are now in our fifth year, and thanks to the ASMBA STAR Foundation, we have helped 69 of our nation's finest men and women heal.

In 2007 I started a small non-profit foundation called Knights of Heroes. The focus of the foundation is a one week summer camp for children who have lost their father in military service. ASMBA Star Foundation has provided financial support for the Knights of Heroes since the very beginning. Without their generosity we would not be where we are today. In 2012 we hosted our sixth camp which was attended by 83 children. I cannot say enough about ASMBA. They are a remarkable organization that is focused on supporting the men, women and families that defend our nation. Thank you!
