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.

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 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!

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.

When my husband was injured in AFG and then died of wounds the GBF supported our family in multiple ways. Financially, emotionally and physically attending one of our events to honor my husband. I can't say enough about this organization and the passion they have for our nation's Service Members and their families. It's personal for them in every way. 3.5 years later I can call on them for advice, support or just to talk to someone who understands this life. The Green Beret Foundation does not have clients, they have family.

My name is Theresa Morehead. I am a widow of a Fallen Soldier MSGT Kevin Morehead. He was in 5th group. The Green Beret Foundation has always shown and given support to me and reminds me all the time that I am still part of their family. It is always a comfort to know that if I ever needed anything, they are there to help me. They are my rock. It's a peacefulness I have in my heart because I know they will always be there in time of need.
They have even supported me in the work that I do (printing) by ordering products from me. To me that speaks volumes. I am proud of the work they do and continue to do for others. They are a true inspiration to the community. And I am proud to be a part of a group that does so much for so many. DOL

We have been at 3rd group for almost 5 years. So many lives have been touched by the work the GBF dose for our community. From families to gold star wives, and the surrounding community at fort Bragg. it's the little things that matter most, helping a family out when they are in a tight spot, or having a single soldier knw that others will be at his left and right if things are tough and hard to do alone. But none showed more to my kids and other military kids than when GBF had the la kings out to our instillation and came for a quick trip to our Ice rink. They came but for a few hours to see our cape fear warriors skate, but that lighted up every kids soul knowing that they where being watched. Our boys who go without their dad for countless months and missed special events with being a military brats were able to meet in person their idols. They signed pucks took pictures with our boys. The players commented on our boys multi cam combat uniform sewn into an jersey and said I got to get me one of those", that made their day knowing they had something special that they noticed. Thank you for showing what our families go through and opening up our world that is hard at times to understand and endure for other to see and grow from our experiences. Our soldiers and families give all that they have Thanku for meeting the same respect and dedication back to our soldiers and families.

The Green Beret Foundation provided my husband and I with amazing support and resources not only at the time he was wounded but throughout his recovery as well. The comfort that comes with knowing that in those times you can count on the GBF, and Green Beret families to rally, is priceless. We are forever grateful.

The Green Beret Foundation has provided an incredible amount of support for the Special Forces community and continues to do right by the Regiment by supporting not just Green Berets, but their families too.

I appreciate the support and positivity provided by the Green Beret Foundation. The Steel Mags (wives of SF) build each other up and band together in time of need. Proud to be a member.
