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!
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.
The work this foundation does, and the help they provide is immeasurable!
The Green Beret Foundation has been a blessing from it's beginning to my husband a severly disabled GB and myself.
They have paid for help with his care in home, flights to Europe for medical treatment, paid for medical needs not covered by Veterans Affairs or insurance.
When our home was remodeled to meet his needs they paid our hotel stay which was almost 4 months!
This is a foundation many foundations could learn from, the GBF is all about helping our Green Berets and their families in whatever way needed, not about profit or putting the ones in need through unnecessary lengthy applications which eat up moneys and precious time our vets sometimes don't have.
They have always been there for us; a foundation we can trust and count on 200%!
Thank you Green Beret Foundation!

This is a great organization. I was going thru a financial crunch one Christmas and I got help from them. I was able to still have a decent Christmas for my family. They have helped looking for other organizations to help with school and other issues. Job always professional like our men!
They are nothing but helpful and compassionate. They go above and beyond for these warriors and their families. Personally, they have helped to ensure my husband's success into civilian life and through them we have met people we now consider family. Cannot say enough good things about the Green Beret Foundation.
The GBF is top notch. The staff are dedicated around the clock and put in timeless hours to ensure our warriors and their families receive the necessary resources they need whether that be programs, care, referrals and so much more. With more funding support the Green Beret Foundation has the potential to serve so many more warriors and families who are in true need. Consider an investment today in our special forces soldiers and their families who stand beside them. They have served and for many...have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
