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.

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 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.

Provides great support to the Special Forces community. Not only for the fallen and wounded, but also they provide assistance and networking for SF soldiers transitioning to civilian careers. First class organization!

GBF is a vital and important part of our community. They offer peace of mind and a reliable safety net in a field where few are to be found. Innaddition to their services for GBs, I follow them on FB and LinkedIn and am happy to see them consistently sharing and advocating on our behalf. The Steel Mags is a wonderful community and they are just doing so many things above and beyond. Proud to be a donor and 100% confident that my donations go to a worthy cause and a deeply responsible organization.

This organization stepped up and saw the difficult and daunting challenge of what it takes for a Green Beret to transition out of the military after being deployed almost every year for over a decade. The service, compassion, care and concern are above the bar for how to treat our Green Beret veterans. They are always at the ready to answer the call and do not try to profit from a tragedy. The professionalism of this organization is top notch and should be the Number 1 Non-Profit for donations in the United States

The level of service provided by the Green Beret Foundation is phenomenal. They see a need and step in to fill the gap, continuously serving the Green Beret community and their families. I recently received support via a Steel Mags retreat. It was a welcomed reprieve which left me feeling rested, revived, and ready to return to support my family and my community.

The camaraderie and support provided by the GBF and the Steel Mags are priceless. This lifestyle brings about so many unique challenges, so it is incredibly refreshing to have a network of supportive women who simply get it. In this sisterhood, there is an natural reciprocal understanding of uncommon situations. The Steel Mags hold each other in high regard and count on one another for encouragement - and for that - I will be forever grateful!

As a volunteer medical liaison for 10th Group, I've had the privelege of working with the GBF on multiple cases over the years. They have always been one of the most responsive and accommodating organizations when it comes to helping soldiers and their families. They are staffed with knowledgeable, competent people (a rarity these days), and have never failed to impress both me and the families I serve.

After years of experiencing this organization from the outside, I decided to dive deeper and volunteer to lead a Steel Mags chapter for the GBF. Seeing it from the inside is just as impressive. An agile, quick moving system that's built to help the SF community from the ground up. I can't recommend the GBF highly enough.

I've been a member of the Steel Mags, the wonderful spouse support group within the Green Beret Foundation, for about a year now. As a member of the Fort Bragg chapter, we've been provided incredible support by working with other women in the chapter. The chairs, Lizzie and Sarah, have been so helpful, and we get to ban together and do things that benefit the service members we support. In addition to supporting active duty and veteran Special Forces families, we also work hard with Gold Star Families so they know that they are not alone. GBF staff is always on call, and makes a point to make themselves accessible to families.

Green Berets give up so much to make sure our great country has an equally great fighting force. That being said, these guardians deserve a quality organization to support them. This is the Green Beret Foundation.

The Green Beret Foundation (GBF), lead by Jennifer Paquette, is extraordinary. They understand the lives of Green Berets and their families because the ARE all GBs and family members. When any member of the GB family is in need, the GBF is there...and it is not only monetary support that they offer. As a GB spouse I have experienced their support first hand. The foundation offers advice based on experience; this is invaluable. On the organizational side, GBF is run with transparency, honesty, and passion. I respect this foundation and would turn to them for help without hesitation.

Green Beret Foundation has been instrumental in my families darkest days. They helped us make the right connections when our son died. They didn't have to help us with that as my son wasn't a soldier but my husband is. They have also been a reliable resource for my husband and I, as we help coordinate services for soldiers WIA, their families, as well as soldiers who are KIA and their families.
Although this may not be their motto, I like to think of GBF as those who take care of their own in any way needed. We are forever grateful for their service and support to the Special forces community and our families.

With out the GBF our husbands and families would not get that extra help they need. The GBF helped my husband by working with the Care Coalition while Med-boarding out after an IED injury. They also help by providing extended care, in our case the Hyperbaric chamber for TBI. Without this organization many soldiers and their families would be suffering unnecessarily, thank you GBF, you rock!!!

A friend of mine introduced me to the group a few months ago. My husband recently got injured in AFG and has a TBI injury. The ladies in the group have already been so supportive and I have felt at home immediately. We all know what we are going through. The words of encouragement from them have been so helpful and keep me positive and focused. Jen who heads this all with her assistants, is truly an amazing woman. We received a wonderful package in the mail today with items for the whole family. Jen has also offered much needed help for anything my husband may need, where possible. This is truly a wonderful organization and they do wonderful things for people who need them in their hour of need. If it wasn't for the GBF, many a soldier and family would have had nowhere else to turn. I am proud to support the GBF and proud to be a Green Berets Wife.
