I ordered a t-shirt from this organization. They charged me for it on the day of purchase. I got one notice of confirmation of purchase and was charged on my paypal account. I never got a confirmation of shipping or tracking number nor did I get the shirt. I got failed response when I tried to e-mail the company on two different e-mails.
Someone on their fb said they were out of town, but none of their practices are professional or make them appear to be doing anything other than taking people's money. I believe I have been scammed and will report them.

Military Veteran Project is an amazing and unique non-profit organization. It is an organization that truly puts veterans first. All proceeds raised are put directly back into the cause to help veterans and the research/treatment of PTSD and TBI to help end military suicides. The organization and the volunteers go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the veterans are receiving the help they need. Each volunteer shows a great deal of respect, care and devotion for their part in the organization. Melissa has truly honored her dying soldier's wish to care for his brothers and sisters and continues to do so with great determination and strength! I am honored to be able to volunteer my time to the Military Veteran Project and be a part of an organization that is helping the lives of countless veterans and service members.

I've worked with a lot of places to volunteer my time with the military but Military Veteran's Project by far takes the cake. They are 100% volunteer. Nobody gets paid which means ALL yes ALL of the donations go directly to the programs that they offer. Also I've been on the Veterans Day Parade Committee for 3 years now and every year we get bigger and better. My son who is 10 is also able to volunteer with me which at other places has not been available. Every event that we've done I've met some of the greatest mentors, friends, veterans and their families that I am pleased to call my family for life.

The time and dedication put into our veterans by MVP is awe inspiring. The ground story behind the organization and its founder is one that would pull on even the hardest of heart strings. The sad fact is the majority of true non profit veteran organizations is that they are majority supported by other vets and their loved ones. Exposure from all avenues will hopefully create a movement that invokes civilians to get involved. The stigma of PTSD is that it is a violent illness. Truth is it can be debilitating.. Health is affected both physically and mentally. We can reduce instances of violence, suicide and homelessness by simply bringing awareness and doing our best to provide treatment for our soldiers. As the significant other of a veteran that suffers from severe PTSD I can't begin to tell you of the need for this. Our family has the same struggles as any other normal family only amplified by 100. He lost both his legs fighting for our rights, what are you doing to say thank you? Thank you and God bless our troops.

Hands down my favorite thing about the MVP, besides the amazing director, is that so much of the donations they receive actually go back to the veterans that are most in need.

MVP adapts to the need of the Veteran and family. They are a great program that does not stick a recovering service member into a one size one need fits all catagory. Melissa has a heart for veterans and true compassion. I am happy to refer clients and support this organization.

I have been touched by the support of this organization. I have seen first hand how hard the volunteers work to connect you with the right resource and help you through the maze of phone calls and paper work. They are truly dedicated to putting the military family first.

This charity haze been growing and has developed into quite something amazing. While the purpose has evolved over the years, it has done so to meet a great need. I only wish we could replicate this in every state! MVP doesn't care who you are or where you've been, or what your experience is. Whether you are a spouse of actively serving (active or guard - we are guard), wounded, widow...Melissa and her organism will help you or find someone who will.

This is not a good charity. They seem to have a different mission every year. It went from honoring the fallen to homeless veterans to veteran with PTSD. Seems to be a hot topic charity that changes to where the money comes from.

I was blessed enough to learn of Melissa Jarboe & her Husband's story, SSG Jamie Jarboe when Melissa first started the Non-Profit (originally named Jamie Jarboe Foundation. In the 3
Years of knowing and Volunteering for events for MVP & Melissa, I have had the great pleasure of seeing the faces of so many Veterans & their families when they receive assistance, go to fun events for Veterans & their families and fundraisers held in honor of our Military.
I do not know of another Non Profit that does this in such a personal & compassionate manner. Those looking for a safe & caring place to come
To when a Loved one,
Family member, friend or comrade is in need and they feel so comfortable because they learn the heart of Melissa who herself has experienced Military life & loss. She has a way of sharing her strength & ability to overcome which in turn gives others inspiration to believe and know it's ok to breakdown when they need to and she & her volunteers will be right there to pick you back up!
She and MVP do not just talk about what they can do for Military & their families, but they Walk the Walk every single day for the past 3 years! When you become part
Of MVP, you become
Part of a Family and it's a Lifelong Family no matter where or what stage you are
In at the time, they will be there for you & your family! ❤️

A friend of the family needed end of life support and the family was having great difficulty navigating the various services offered through the local VA Hospital. With the guidance and direction of the helpful volunteers at the Military Veteran Project, the family received the assistance needed to make a difficult time less stressful. When a family member of a Veteran struggles learning their way - MVP helps find solutions. They received the necessary support for the final days of a loved one who long ago fought to protect us all. Thank you!
