This organization has been a big gift for our family.

The gift of life.

After 4 tours and being wounded in combat medical retirement.

This organization has been a very big piece to me being alive, my family thriving, a 2nd son and continued growth.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to heal my wounds and the bridges I destroyed within my family while working on executing my exit strategy.

I am very grateful for this organization and everyone that makes it possible.

The TBI and PTS treatment was wonderful relating past memories that had positive influence in my life to scripture was amazing.

The couple's marriage training was unbelievable. Thank you so much Boot Campaign Staff and all the Generous donors that help bring us home.

Phenomenal non-profit. Assesses the individual and recommends treatment based on assessment as opposed to just sending the veteran or service member to a random location because "it might work". As a result, veterans find success and are able to move on with their lives. Boot Campaign recognizes the importance of family and looks for ways to support and integrate them as well. Passionate team ready to help by finding real, effective, long lasting answers!

Boot Campaign has and continues to ignite the inner patriot in Americans for more than a decade. I am proud to be affiliated with Boot Campaign and look forward to being a part of their continued tremendous service.

When I retired from running a military based nonprofit, I was seeking to volunteer with a nonprofit that works with PTSD/TBI veterans. The Boot Campaign does just that and they are very successful at getting the help these veterans need. Well networked and connected to programs that work for the pressing issues that veterans deal with when they are diagnosed. Shelly Kirkland heads up a great team doing great things for our military members.

I want to thank Boot Campaign for their support and help with my injuries from active duty. The Boot Campaign’s Health and Wellness program help with my chronic pain and insomnia. I can’t say enough about the specialized treatment I received from their incredible partners that took the time to help me. I am now giving back to Boot Campaign’s continued support of Veteran’s invisible wounds by raising money as I hike 300 miles on the Colorado Trail in the back woods of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I would not be able to accomplish this with out the programs from Boot Campaign. THANK YOU ALL!!

I have volunteered for this great military non-profit for nearly six years. In this time, I have seen Boot Campaign evolve to meet the ever changing landscape of how to best serve the military and the Veteran population. Their Health and Wellness program combines individualized comprehensive plans to improve the Veteran’s mind and body. This organization is small but packs a mighty punch - and they keep their organization small in order to maintain keeping an overhead of no more than 15% - of which currently 88% of their monies raised have gone directly back to those who need the help. I have been an advocate for many military non-profits, but I have been aligned with Boot Campaign for so long because they have always stayed true to their root cause - helping service members and Veterans above helping themselves.

The staff and collaborative partners of the Boot Campaign care deeply for improving the wellness of our veterans, service members and their families. Their personalized approach to assessing needs and determining the best course of action for each individual is unique among the thousands of organizations serving our military community. They work tirelessly to ensure their programs are provided free of charge to eligible participants and, for those who may not specifically benefit from BC's areas of focus, a 'warm hand off' is provided to program providers that might better suit their needs. As a surviving military spouse and proud mom of an Army aviator, I truly appreciate their passion and compassion for making an impact on improving the wellness of those who've given so much.

I’ve been nothing but impressed with the dedication of Boot Campaign’s staff to serving veterans. It is abundantly evident that they genuinely care and work so hard to take care of our heroes. I truly wish my late husband, a Vietnam veteran Marine, could have benefited from their care before his passing. I know he would have been cared for as an individual and given the utmost respect, which was not always what he encountered in his era. Keep up the good work, ladies, and may God bless you all!

The Boot Campaign Health and Wellness program is hands down the “real-deal!” I have never seen this level of commitment and dedication to ensure veterans receive the help needed to be whole again, and all of it without restrictions on branch, era, VA rating, etc. I have had the privilege of volunteering for and donating to this amazing program and am constantly impressed by the loyalty shown back to them from veterans they have served in the past. I’m not sure why all the other VSOs don’t copy exactly what Boot Campaign is doing because they’re doing it right! As a retired veteran with several invisible wounds myself, I can’t say enough how much I appreciate what they do.

As a Veteran that served almost 25 years with three combat deployments to Iraq, I saw first hand the challenges faced by the Soldiers I served with every day. More specifically, I witnessed serious injuries from combat operations. The visible injuries were something that our world class doctors were able to take care of with the best of their abilities. It was the "invisible wounds" of war that have taken its toll on my fellow service members. Suicide rates, divorce rates and the frustrations of dealing with Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder have had a the greatest impact on the Veterans that I have served with. So, I got involved with the Non-Profit called Boot Campaign, Inc. They precisely focus their efforts on Veterans that have PTSD and TBI issues along with Chronic Pain, Sleep and Addiction challenges. The same "big 5" things that are the leading cause of 22 Veterans committing suicide daily. I'm thankful for this organization tackling the hardest medical issues of "invisible wounds" and partnering with World-Class medical facilities to provide any Veteran the opportunity to get help. It's expensive and takes focused resources to provide the holistic support that these Veterans and their families need. Boot Campaign does this so well. Proud to be a part of this organization as a Board Member. Proud to have a Non-Profit that is trying to support Veterans with their greatest need...their health. Finally, proud that Boot Campaign collaborates with other non-profits to support the other needs that might be desired. This is an incredible organization that does everything so well with transparency of their financials and a focus on best use of the dollars that they receive.

Boot Campaign is the epitome of a transparent and truly exceptional Veteran Service Organization that works diligently and individually with veterans to get them the care they need for invisible wounds of war.

The Boot Campaign sells combat boots for two reasons - to show patriotism and appreciation for our service members, while raising funds for our programs which help these folks upon their return from combat. The Boot Campaign programs help military families get the assistance they need as they ease back into civilian life. This is a fun and necessary initiative that gives back to the people who protect our American freedom.

I am a non prior service discharge of the Army. Many of my brothers I trained with during my short service and many others I've met after service had never heard of this org. When I came across it there was no doubt for my support.

I've told many veterans about this program whether the services this org will help them directly or not because without the strength of our team, we cannot complete our mission.

Thank you for your returned service to those who swore to defend.

My name is Elizabeth and I am currently CEO of another Veteran Organization. It is very important in our field, as non-profit organizations, that we all work with different organizations to better help our U.S. Military service members.

Working with the "Boot Campaign, Inc." has been an absolutely amazing experience. The generosity, caring, and loyalty that is felt while working with the leaders of this organization are like few others.

We all have our personal missions to assist our US Military members, however, the Boot Campaign, is going above and beyond their call of duty to provide for some of the most deserving men and women today.

Thank you Boot Campaign, for all you have done for my organization as well as our community!

Once you stop, open your eyes, and really see how things are!!! Life takes on new perspective.

Truly, my life changed when i started paying attention to the people who selflessly give for the safety of the rest of us. Boot Campaign provides support for those who keep us safe every day. When our solders return from duty, life doesn't always resume as it left off. In fact, much of the time it is very difficult. Much more difficult than when they deployed.
PTSD & TBI treatments are regular occurrences that most of us civilians will never understand. For that reason Boot Campaign is a group of angels.
The Boot Campaign team is truly a great organization! Once I opened my eyes, not of my own doing, and began to see how things really are for our service men and women when they return from service. I was luckily introduced to some of the people who take care of many of our veterans with these struggles. A truly amazing group!
I wanted to order boots for my small office, unfortunately i had missed a large promotion the Boot Campaign had run by 1 day. When i asked about missing the promo, they told me they would honor it for one more day, for me. They were so great, I ordered 11 pair of boots. I was informed on every step of the order, including size out of stock. They suggested alternatives and made the experience of dealing with them a pleasure. The boots arrived very quickly with personalized notes to the recipients. What a wonderful touch.
I try to spread the message by wearing my boots regularly and jumping at the opportunity to explain why when asked "whats up with the boots?" I am a survivor of a major TBI and I am recovering only because of ReBoot and the Boot Campaign!
Thank you ReBoot, thank you Boot Campaign, you are all angels!

Boot Campaign is an amazing organization that honors the service and sacrifice of Veterans and Military Families with the simple act of lacing up a pair of combat boots. The Passion, Power and Purpose of its mission - "When They Come Back, We Give Back" - inspires the amazing staff and volunteers to lead the fight to Reclaim Health and Wellness, Restore Families, Restart Careers, Reduce Suicide and Reinforce Communities.

Boot Campaign's revolutionary Health and Wellness pipeline gives veterans access
and funding to the individualized and comprehensive programs they need and deserve. To accomplish this, Boot Campaign joins forces with like-minded entities to help Military Families struggling with traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, self-medication and insomnia. Its saving lives every day.

I'm encouraged, inspired, motivated and honored to say; "I've got my Boots On!" and I challenge anyone who wants to make REAL difference in the lives of our Veterans and Military Families to join us. Lace Up, America!

Fantastic . I ordered boots turned out they were on back order so I exchanged them for the same boot but different color. Ms Navarro was very helpful in get the order squared away. The only issue I have is with the supplier. they need to be clear about how the boots are sized , do they run either big or small . I found that mine ran big . I have had the same issue elsewhere.
I found this site while searching on line for boots and will be ordering another set of boots soon.

Boot Campaign saved our family when we were at our very lowest. After my husband was medically retired from the military his pay was messed up and not coming through like it should. In the long drawn out process to get it all worked out we were down to half a gallon of milk in our refrigerator and not much else to feed our family. Rent was behind and bills were piling up. When we turned to them their response was, "We only wish you'd have reached out sooner." They truly saved us and helped us through that rough time. They paid a few imperative bills and sent us gift cards for gas and food. We are eternally greatful.

After several years working with the program from the outside my husband now works with their new Reboot program. This program works with veterans who need help reintegrating. From addiction, PTSD, depression, and suicide, they truly work to ensure these veteran are getting the care they so much need and deserve.

The Boot Campaign is an amazing organization comprised of an amazing group of truly wonderdul people.

Found out about BC from a Texas Marine I met at another Non-Profit event. Decided to check them out. They're a great organization that is truly committed, straight-shootiing, honest, genuine, true to their roots, and are just a true treasure. Their products are of high quality. Their hero ambassadors are selfless and giving. They inspire, encourage, promote, and ignite awareness and patriotism. They give hope, meaning, and purpose to everyone that is touched by them. I hope to work with them one day as a volunteer and pay it forward. Work hasn't allowed me to do so, but I am leaving to pursue school and become a Veterans Advocate. I will finally be able to volunteer and live the motto that they believe in, and that Chris Kyle believed in, "It is our duty to serve those who serve us". Everyone, please get your boots on!

I can't remember how I first heard about Boot Campaign but being a person who 1-loves boots and 2-loves Vets I knew I wanted to get my Boots On!. First I ordered the "Tac Force 8" Women's Tan Tactical Boot with Zipper". I will admit there was a mistake and I was sent the men's size instead of the women's. I called Boot Campaign right away and I was first impressed that I actually spoke to a human. She could not have been nicer or more sorry for the mistake. The mistake was corrected immediately and I now have my boots. They are more comfortable than any shoes (or boots) that I have. I wear them most of the time. Since the ones I bought were tan color, I just ordered "GX-8 Gore-Tex Black for Women" what well dressed woman doesn't need a good pair of black combat boots? I continue to have my "Boots On!".

Long story short... I am an internationally known professional photographer, I come from a long line of military people in my family, and I married a woman who dedicated over 10 years in the US Army before being injured her 2nd tour to Iraq resulting in her being forced to medically retire. We always are looking to see what charities that support our vets and what they are actually doing to help. Been following Boot Campaign for a bit and just felt they are doing some great things with the provisions they have.
I just purchased a shirt from them as obviously majority of spouses are female. I want to show support to those FEMALE vets like my wife who have a man at home who supports what they do.

This is my go-to organization when I make a donation "in leu of flowers" in someone's memory. I also keep a supply of their CDs in my car/purse to give out to military personal/veterans when I see them. Earlier today, I followed a Vietnam Vet on his motorcycle until he stopped and I thanked him for his service and handed him a CD. Just now I ordered my second set of 10 to have on hand. Last December, a friend and I raised almost $4,000 for the Boot Campaign.

My family has always been military. My grandfathers both served, my maternal grandfather in the Air Corps before it was the Air Force, becoming a POW and surviving the Bataan Death March. My paternal grandfather was in the Navy and served during the Korean War.

My father joined the Air Force immediately after going to college on the GI bill, and became a C-141 pilot after he lost a buddy during fighter training. Flying is his life. He served during Desert Storm, Desert Shield, that mess in Bosnia and Somalia. I would sit with my mother and sister and watch the anti-aircraft fire, praying he would make it.

He now flies for a civilian cargo outfit, and they have a bunch of DoD contracts, so he still flies into Kabul and such, occasionally with supplies for soldiers and sometimes with the soldiers himself. He's told me that he wishes very much that he could get back in the fight and serve again.

I was raised as a military child, and my parents instilled such a strong sense of responsibility in me that it kept me alive when my severe depression made me suicidal. So I want to thank each and every one of you for your bravery, your sacrifice, your sheer refusal to quit. You save lives in ways you don't even know about. You saved mine. Thank you all. I am more grateful than I can ever express.
