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!

This is an organization that serves veterans and their families. The service members and their families have been helped with housing, medical needs and educational costs.

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.

Having spent much of my life around veterans, active duty military, and those preparing to serve our nation, I can honestly say that Boot Campaign does it right. Veterans receive top-notch care from a really talented staff who honestly understand the issues veterans face and how to address those head on.

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. I've personally seen how their programs impact veteran families directly, and in some cases, how it has changed the course of a veteran's life tremendously.

I've been involved with Boot Campaign since 2011 shortly after my husband was injured in combat. It's provided me a way to give back to a community that gives so much for us 'regular' Americans.

My wife and I were looking 8 years ago for a great non profit to support financially as well as with our time. We had been taken by some in the past that were not good Stewards of money. We are so thankful we found Boot Campaign. Now our money is spent 88 cents on the dollar towards the mission.

We at True Vine Brewing Company in Tyler, TX have worked in partnership with this non-profit for the past couple of years at one of our largest events we host each Fall. The people at this organization are incredible, big-hearted people willing to serve wherever is needed. I love the mission behind what they do for veterans, how they fight together for it and all the people they are able to help in the process. I'm honored to give them a 5 star review! As a daughter of a veteran, it's amazing to see and hear all the many stories of how the Boot Campaign is making a tremendous difference in the world. THANK YOU GUYS!!!

I have spent 10 years volunteering for Boot Campaign and during that time, I have met numerous veterans and their family members who need some help. The health & wellness focus of Boot Campaign really gets to the heart of what each individual needs to lead a happy and successful life after service. Each person is treated with the dignity, compassion and respect that he/she deserves while navigating new challenges. I feel confident that my donations are used to best serve our military community through Boot Campaign.

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.

Boot Campaign was amazing during our time of need. They quickly processed paperwork and helped us get a vehicle to fit our needs after some tragedies took place. I will forever think fondly of them and recommend them to other veterans.

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!

When looking for the right treatment for service related disabilities and how to live with and improve my situation after leaving the sniper community, these folks stepped up and have me on the road back to being part of society after knowing and dealing with what I was. Thank you soo much to the staff and volunteers and adjacents to the organization.
