Absolutely love this organization and their mission! I so appreciate that they are taking such great care of our men and women overseas while they are sacrificing time with their families and their very lives to be there for us. I love their effort to ensure no soldier be forgotten while deployed and that they make each and every recipient of their care packages feel loved and appreciated
I am 14 and have been involved for 14 years, I very much appreciate and enjoy all that they do for the US military.
The experience you have at a packing event with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is priceless! It makes you appreciate the simple things that we take for granted daily. Hearing the gratitude from previous recipients is amazing. I am so proud of the founder, Lynelle for putting this organization together and her team for their hard work keeping it together and of course all of the repeat volunteers! We look forward to supporting them for many years to come.
About a year ago I was able to start volunteering at this wonderful organization. I love their mission and their purpose. Being a military mom it helps me feel involved in the military community. The ladies that run this program are amazing. I am so proud to say that I am one of their volunteers!!
I have been a volunteer at Forgotten Soldiers Outreach for several months and can say it is a fantastic organization that perfectly fills a need for our courageous soldiers that defend our country. The care packages that are boxed and shipped to our soldiers overseas in far away countries provide needed everyday items that are so hard to replenish. These packages send a touch of home to them. When I volunteer at FSO, I feel like my time is well spent and on such a great cause.
Several months ago I learned about Forgotten Soldiers and knew I had to get involved. FSO is run by an organized devoted staff and supported by a large group of wonderful volunteers. The military care packages are filled with a variety of needed items and packed with smiles. I always look forward to the time spent giving to our military since they give so much for us. I am proud to be a part of this fine organization.
I have been honored to volunteer & support FSO on many occasions. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, is a wonderful organization that touches the hearts of many deployed service men and women.
It truly brought me to happy tears, when I would be at an event, and someone would stop by our booth, and share with me, how awesome it was to get their care packages while overseas. To appreciate all that was in the box, the letters, the treats, the needed hygiene supplies. Made me proud to be a part of the FSO Team!!!
Great organization that touches so many lives. I love volunteering with FSO. Especially when I meet soldiers that share their appreciation for the packages they reviewed when deployed.
Amazing work by dedicated staff and volunteers to support our military. The quality of the care packages is second to none.
I have been with this organization since 2013. The volunteers and staff work so hard to to get packages out to military service members. Amazing non-profit that insures that our troops are not forgotten.
This organization is great! I am deployed in a remote location where we don't get much supplies or reminders of home often. Your care packages I receive every month are moral boosters to say the least, words of encouragement are uplifting and greatly appreciated. The snacks sent are shared with everyone in my division and they too greatly appreciate your gifts. Thank you for everything!
Forgotten Soldiers is an awesome non profit organization. There's a feeling of excitement we get from receiving a package during mail call. Being so far away from home, some of us don't have much in the way of families so some of the Soldiers and Airmen don't get mail. We become isolated for a time so we become each others family.
It is a great thing that this org does for our Soldiers and Airmen. When we receive a package it feels like someone cares. Being in the desert and working day in and day out gives us a kind of ground hog day sensation. When we get packages in the mail it's like Christmas.
I had never heard of Forgotten Soldier until a fellow military spouse shared about it on Facebook. I have been so amazed with the kindness and generosity this organization bestows. Shortly after I submitted the forum to sign him up I was emailed. There was a small issue with his address, and they helped me fix it within the same day! Everytime I've spoken to anyone they are kind, respectable and extraordinarily helpful! My husband recieved his first package about a month later and he loved all the hygiene goodies he got, especially the sun screen since he's in the dessert! Thank you Forgotten Soldier, and everything you do, it's comforting to know someone else besides me is looking out for my husband.
In my opinion, I know how much this organization helps our service members that are deployed overseas. You can tell that the volunteers and the staff do this from their hearts and that this organization means everything to them. Helping those that receive little to nothing from home breaks my heart. As a person that was raised military and was a military mom, I cannot believe that there are not more organizations such as Forgotten Soldiers Outreach out there. I just want to say....good job to the volunteers for doing all they do to support our troops!!!
My son is now on his 4th deployment since 2006. Every deployment, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach has sent him and his brothers packages. I am very grateful towards the volunteers and the staff of FSO for sending him and the guys packages. As a military raised, military mom, I know that those packages mean a lot to the men and women that are deployed overseas. It boosts their morale knowing that complete strangers are thinking of them and put a ton of love into the packages they receive. I know that I cannot personally say thank you enough to these men and women that serve our country and leave their families and friends to defend our freedom. Thank you FSO for supporting them while they are away.
We had the honor of working alongside of this wonderful organization in February. Great people with big hearts doing great things
The reality of what FSO is doing is much more than sending cards and WeCare package. This amazing organisation is showing American soldiers that the reason they are risking their life very far from their home country really matters and make a difference. FSO tells them through these package that there are millions of people who really care for them and are grateful. Please donate some time or some money to the FSO team, like I do as often as I can. The team is great and what they do essential.
For the past three years helping FSO, I can say that this organization has some of the hardest most dedicated people I've had the pleasure to be around. Not only do they work hard but you can feel the motivation they have for helping the soldiers.
I had the pleasure of working with this group on a fundraiser several months ago. This is a great group of people that are extremely dedicated to their mission of helping those who are protecting our way of life.
Thank you Forgotten Soldiers Outreach for being the setting that provides connection, emotional support, love and a place where our hearts can fulfill it's passion. Increasing the resilience of the individual can increase the resilience of the community, and providing a helping hand to a neighbor or a friend, can also help the person giving the hand. Any opportunity to extend gratitude and show support to our deployed military and their families, and to acknowledge their important contribution to the well-being and safety of our country is something I do not take lightly. A simple "thank you" to a service member helps show gratitude of their sacrifice. All people, not just those involved in the military, benefit from community support, and the emotional show of support is important to everyone's health and well-being. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, Inc. is the venue that connects our communities with those serving abroad and also impacts our communities and the family members back home. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach is a huge family and there is nothing better than working and helping each other, ensuring that NO ONE IS FORGOTTEN. For those returning to those deploying. The south Florida community, FSO's volunteers, staff, military family members and those deployed recipients of FSO's We Care package program share in the joy of giving and receiving. This is why it is so common to find "recipients" from FSO's program volunteering, attending fundraising events, and continuing their involvement with FSO after they return home from their tours.
Last November I was let go from my job, and like most we live on a budget. With no savings to carry us through we learned how to put our complete Trust in God. Our family is overwhelmingly blessed as God has made a way and our every need has been met. Forgotten Soldiers Outreach filled our home with furniture as we were unable to move our furniture from north Florida. God is good! Thank you..... Thank you.... Thank you.... Our prayers have been answered. Jesus HELP, is a powerful and short prayer...Might I suggest this to those who need comfort, rest, and peace. He is the way the truth and the life!
Wonderful organization that consistently sends out monthly care packages to our deployed military service members. They ensure that recipients receive the best items possible including toiletries hygiene items snacks and letters of encouragement.
This is an amazing group of people that dedicated so much time helping those protect us keep up the great work
