Angie Fennen was asked for financial support from a Green Beret Gold Start family member. The family member was told on three occasions that the family member would get a specific amount of financial support. This process started back at the beginning of the year. The family member has yet to receive anything even after following up. I find it interesting that the Steel Mags was raising money for the Coast Guard. Is this even allowed under the GBF's bylaws? I know they didn't want to support this gold star family member when the family member endured the loss but the family member wanted to give them a chance. Very disappointing.
Seeing how the GBF helped several families in our community through different situations led me to become involved as a Steel Mag. We are so thankful for this organization and all it does to help Green Berets and their families.
On September 25th, 2011 my life changed forever. I was shot in the abdomen during a combat operation in Afghanistan while serving as a Green Beret. My injuries were severe, fractured hip, 20% of my colon removed, partially paralyzed left leg due to nerve damage. I underwent six surgeries to repair the damage which have left me with over 40 inches of scars. From day 1 the GBF was there for my family and I. there is no doubt that there unfailing support is one of the reasons why my recovery went so well. Seven years later I am proud to give back to the Foundation and the Green Berets as a GBF Ambassador.
One of my Special Forces teammates was severely wounded in Afghanistan during our deployment. It was a very difficult time because we had no idea if he would survive. A single phone call to the Green Beret Foundation from Afghanistan and they were able to provide money and supplies to his family in order to allow them to travel Walter Reed Hospital and help with his recovery. Our teammate survived and his family was there to see him when we woke up in the hospital. All because of one single phone call to the Green Beret Foundation. I only wish the VA system was as organized and receptive.
Most Professional Agency there is, bar-none!! You will not find an organization that is more talented, passionate, and capable than the Green Beret Foundation.....
Very well run nonprofit that does so much good for the community. Please keep up the great works and there are no other causes I would rather donate to.
I am a proud supporter of GBF and lucky to be a part of the sisterhood that is the Steel Mags. These two organizations are dedicated to selflessly serving others. Proud to be a volunteer and a Steel Mag!
I am a very proud supporter of the GBF and member of the Steel Mags! What a strong, resilient group of ladies dedicated to the care and support of our quiet professionals.
My husband and I have been members of the US Army Special Forces (Green Beret) Family/Community for almost five decades. During that time we have rarely - if ever - seen a nonprofit step up and provide across the board assistance, programs and services with as much love, care, compassion and professionalism as the Green Beret Foundation (GBF) does. We have watched the GBF develop, grow and expand from their original mission (providing services/programs to post 9-11 wounded/injured SF Warriors, their Families and the SF Community's Gold Star Families) to an expanded mission which is now providing assistance, programs and services to the entire US Army Special Forces (Green Beret) community. When we look for organizations that best utilize our donor dollars where they will make a significant difference in the well being of our SF Community the Green Beret Foundation is at the very top of our list!
The Steel Mags a program of the GBF, provides me support, knowledge and guidance
Extremely proud supporter of The Green Beret Foundation and all that they stand for. I find it a much better use of my money than almost any bill I have. I will donate and support for as long as I’m alive!
I am proud to be a supporter of this fantastic organization. They do their homework, and give stellar physical, emotional and financial support to wounded SF Soldiers, their families, and the families of their fallen. They try to fill in the gaps and do what other charitable organizations miss, and they do it with a sense of family, pride, and humble spirit. GBF deserves all the support that can be given, in my opinion.
This foundations impact has and will continue to be felt by many great men and women. The do a fantastic job!
The Green Beret Foundation is Top Notch and ALWAYS goes above & beyond to help out Soldiers and their families. I know, first hand because they helped my family out in a time of need. 5 Star Nonprofit for sure!!!!
The Green Beret Foundation goes above and beyond to help Green Berets in need. Thanks for always being there to help!
The Green Beret Foundation funded medical treatment for my husband, a medically retired Green Beret, that neither our insurance or the VA would cover. Thanks to their support my husband was able to make a great step towards getting better from his combat injuries. Thanks for all you do!
GBF has actively helped countless green berets and their families in our area. Through financial assistance during hard times to simple “we are here” calls. This Foundation is top notch- sincere and passionate in their drive for supporting our SOF community.
The Green Beret Foundation has given our family a home within this community. Their support is always ready and willing and just what you need, whether the need is big or small. The folks behind the work understand what it takes to serve the SF community and they serve them with honor and dignity. Such a wonderful organization!
The Green Beret Foundation is a phenomenal organization with one mission.... caring for and suppooGreen Berets and their families through difficult times and transition. Love the GBF! They've helped my family and many others in our time of need.
The best way I can describe GBF: unconventional assistance and aid for unconventional Soldiers. They have a way of making Soldiers and families feel like a member of their own family rather than a case file.
Great organization that truly cares about our Green Berets and their families.
