Thank you for all that you do. You have no idea what it means for me and my team. The struggle is real. The issues are real. The sadness is real. The depression is real. The loneliness is real. But guess what?!?!? Sending golf clubs and balls to us changes everything. You are sending us what we miss most from home- memories of our family and friends, the freedom to enjoy each other's company, just "hanging out", the game of golf, and most importantly, people thinking about us and caring about us during these very troubling and hard times. Bunkers in Baghdad is a wonderful example of why I love this great country! People caring about others even in their most desperate time of need. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Joe & Co. You are great patriots.

I recently started learning to Golf through a program in the Veteran Affairs. I found out about this Non-profit through someone in my golf class. I messaged Joe about how to sign up with the Organization. He responded right away. Within less than a week of contacting Joe I had Golf equipment and balls at my house! I was amazed at how fast I received equipment.

I’m currently in a location that had restrictions in regards to the mail service not allowing bunkersoverbaghdad to send equipment. They didn’t stop there, they checked every week for about 2 months until the restriction was lifted. I received an email a few days ago from MR. Joe telling me the gear is on the way. I couldn’t be more satisfied and thankful for their tireless effort to support the troops. A true class charity organization. Thanks again and it’s much appreciated!!!!!

Good morning- I reached out to Bunkers in Baghdad two weeks ago so they can send equipment to my son who is stationed overseas. Yesterday- I received pictures from my son hitting golf balls in the mountains. It is amazing to think that we could call a charity, ask for a donation for our son who is overseas, and he would get it all in less than 10 days. I cannot thank Bunkers enough for their dedication and love of our soldiers.

Bunkers in Baghdad has done it again by providing American veterans with the ability to get back in the game of golf. Back in 2009, Bunkers sent out golf clubs and balls to our unit in southern Iraq. Just this week after 12 years of honorable service and being a 100%disabled vet, I received another box of clubs of this great organization

I wrote Bunkers on a Thursday and Friday I had a reply from Joe. Outstanding!!! Although my equipment is still enroute I can say that these guys are not only friendly and doing a great service for those of us out on the front lines but are understanding and quick as well. I can't get this kind of reaction from a company I am giving money to let alone someone doing something for us for free. The morale boost just from knowing the equipment is coming is amazing. great job and THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Fantastic organization doing great things for our service members. Being away from home is difficult but getting an unexpected round of golf in was a great stress relief. A number of soldiers had never golfed and Bunkers in Baghdad provided us with the opportunity to extend the game to them.

I contacted Bunkers in Baghdad on July 6 and we received clubs and balls in two weeks. Fantastic how quickly they responded and the donations they provided.
