Ft hood Massage/Reiki program has been a rewarding experience for me. As a daughter of a Korea/ Vietnam veteran I understand how important my role is to be a volunteer. My dad was very proud to serve his country and supported helping his fellow veterans. I have witnessed how the Cause has made an impact on our soldiers lives. The Cause is a wonderful program. Please donate and support the Cause.

CAUSE is a great program to support wounded soldiers and their families. I serve as a proud volunteer for their Massage and Reiki Program at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The staff are very dedicated to the mission and work hard to provide key services to help with the healing and recovery processes for these brave men and women in uniformed services. I heartily recommend CAUSE if you are seeking a worthy organization to donate to or volunteer for.

I am a Licensed Massage Therapist at the San Antonio Fort Sam SAMMC. I have worked for CAUSE for about 3 years now providing Massage Therapy and Reiki healing for the soldiers and their family members. It has been a great honor and privilege to be member of this team and administer healing to our wounded warriors and family members for their service for our country. Everyone I have encountered from fellow Lmts, SAMMC employees at the Warrior and Family Support Center, and especially our soldiers have been a joy to work with, and I look forward each and every time I work with all these wonderful individuals. I am especially humbled to provide therapeutic massage on our soldiers and give them relief from their physical and emotional pain. I look forward to continue to be a part of such a remarkable team.

I have worked with CAUSE on their massage project with the wounded warriors at Fort Sam Houston for over four years. It has been an incredible opportunity. The whole team at CAUSE is thoughful, efficient, responsive, and incredibly supportive; they set the tone for how we should work with each other and how they would like the troops to be supported. Working with the troops has been one of the most meaningful experiences I've ever had. Meeting the warriors, seeing what they have endured and how they have handled it has given me immense pride in and gratitude for our armed forces. They are really exceptional people, and it is an honor to serve them. I think all the volunteers I work with on the massage program feel the same way.

I spend my off time from my regular job as a volunteer on Ft. Hood with CAUSE at the C-DEL... I started just a little into Aug of 2012.

Originally I had not heard about C-DEL or CAUSE until a fellow club member* we both build scale model kits, we are in the same club that is local* Told me about the WTU and the organization an what they did.
So he brought up an idea of bringing donated model kits into the C-DEL… this is how I got started with CAUSE and the C-DEL… the troops at the WTU mostly refer to me now as the Model Guy, I have a pretty good following now an they come in daily.

I don’t regret any time I’ve spent here and the people from the Lead to the fellow volunteer next to me
They are Good People! I have made some good connections with these troops here and formed some close bonds with fellow brothers in arms, I’m a Vet also so now that I can’t stand on the line elsewhere… I can stand here with CAUSE and C-DEL and help these men an women out as best I know how.

I have worked with the CAUSE program for three years now. I consider it a great honor to be able to interact with the soldiers and family members we serve. Each soldier's circumstance is unique, yet, they all share the common bond of wounds, both seen and unseen. My experience with CAUSE continues to be one of the great joys of my life.

My wife and I volunteer for the non-profit group, CAUSE. This organization provides free checkout of movies, TV series, games and gaming systems to our Wounded Warriors at Fort Hood, TX. Our experience as volunteers has been very positive. The men and women who are in the Wounded Warrior program are in need of positive support and appreciation. Our supervisor and experienced co-workers have be invaluable in training and working with us since joining this organization. We are proud to be a part of this program.

Cause is a great organization specializing in the needs of our wounded warriors. We consider it a real opportunity to be there for those who have given so much for us. The Soldiers that come into our facility truly seem to appreciate our presence and enjoy their time with us. One recent comment card stated “C-del has been a blessing to my family and I, always having recent movies and games. Thank you C-del.” – a Soldier.
I’ve been the coordinator at the Fort Hood Cdel location now for a total of approximately 1 ½ years. I consider it a privilege and honor to serve our wounded warriors. I have several wonderful volunteers who work diligently to serve the Soldiers. Not only do they assist the Soldiers with their borrowed items, they also are there as a listening ear. The volunteers assist me with the checks and balances required when keeping track of the items that have been borrowed. I couldn’t be more proud of them. They are an amazing group of people of whom I hold in high regard!

I have been a member of the CAUSE team for over three years. It is through this incredible organization that we are able to provide massage and reiki therapy sessions to our soldiers-in-transition (STs) at the Fort Hood Warrior Transition Brigade. The STs love their sessions and are always grateful that these services are provided. Providing comfort to these men and women who have served Our Great Nation means the world to me.

I am grateful that CAUSE provides these wonderful services.

Have volunteered for CAUSE since around 2008 of and on. Not so much recently due to the move to Maryland. Have always found the staff to be courteous and very thankful for anytime that I volunteered.

I am a RN and a massage therapist with over 15 years experience. I provide massage services for the wounded warriors and their family members at the Fort Sam/SAMMC branch. The organization here is very organized and well run. All of the volunteers and workers I have met have been extremely wonderful to work with. As our purpose for being there is to provide them some relief from their stress and pain, I believe we achieve our goals. It is expressed in the faces of our wounded warriors and their family members as they rise up from our massage tables and chairs and give us their thanks. And as grateful as they feel, we are even more grateful to be able to provide that small amount of service to them in return for their service for us. I truly believe this is a very worthwhile "CAUSE".

I volunteered at the Fort Hood location in mid-late 2012 and I was very dissapointed in how the CAUSE site manager (who used to be the CAUSE manager and came back from San Antonio) treated me and the other two ladies who were volunteering. By the way the other two ladies were senior military spouses and they never came back to volunteer either because of the way they were treated by the older couple. She and the old couple who helped her train were extremely condescending rude and just not a positive place to volunteer. I volunteered 3 times and I stopped volunteering because of the negative and hostile work environment. I hope that they get a new manager and some new people to run the organization, because it is a worth while organization.

As a Cause CDEL volunteer at the Balboa Naval Hospital I have had the opportunity to interact with many Wounded Warriors and some of their parents. The Wounded Warriors enjoy both the free access to movies/video games and sometimes just the opportunity to talk with someone outside their command. Parents have expressed their gratitude when they find our more our organization and that we are volunteers donating our time as well as the donors that support Cause with current release movies and video games.
