Regarding Operation 57.Org. I am so grateful they were there for us. My son's PTSD and TBI caused a serious problem recently. He overspent and was short on his living expenses. Which left us short for groceries. They responded quickly and seriously saved us from ten days at the end of the month without food. We are so grateful, beyond belief! One huge worry relieved. Thank you so much. The day before we received the help a bag of popcorn was what I hate to stave off an empty belly. Thank you again and again. Kim Fox

They helped us with groceries when we needed it the most. I have been out the service for just over a year and needed to bounce back from unexpected expenses. My AW2 recommended them to me and they delivered. God bless them

I would like to thank Operation ward 57 for allowing me and my wife to attend a Garth Brooks concert in November of 2017 and a Tyler Swift concert this year. We are beyound words thankful for this organization. I normally dont attend events in large crowds for many reasons but when organizations like Operation ward 57 host events. I feel a automatic bound/connection to the people around me even if words go unspoken throughtout the event. It gives me a oppertunity I wouldn't otherwise have to gain a positive outlook on life. It serves as a reminder life is worth living.

I'm in the middle of moving and requested assistance from this organization. I live completely off of disability and don't have a lot to survive off of with that alone, so needless to say that when this organization stepped up to the plate, they hit a home run. I don't know how they did it, but they managed to pull a huge gas card for me that is going to make the move more affordable. I'm truly appreciative of this and will find a way to repay them one day. Thank you again!

This Christmas was going to be scarce. We had a major car repair and a plumbing leak all happen in a matter of 2 weeks in November, it cleared out our Christmas savings for our family.
Then a fellow COWW shared the OHward57 link. We were choosen to be adopted by a generous donor. My kids will have presents to open Christmas morning. The donor was kind in keeping up via email and is even generous enough to wrap everything for us. I can't say thank you enough.

As a wife of a military man, I'm thankful we personally have never had to use Operation Ward 57, which is a great reason to volunteer and help where I can, and knowing what this group does for our military and their families. Brittney has the biggest heart and does an amazing job keeping this non-profit going strong, and helping others. The events, including Rock & Rally is an amazing and the speakers found for this event touch my heart and make me happy to be able to help out any way possible.

I love volunteering with Ward 57! They are an amazing organization, helping veterans and active duty soldiers, caregivers, families and kiddos along the way. They don't limit their support and Brittney helps so many families! I have volunteered with other military non-profits in the past and none are as respectful, kind or truly appreciate the work of volunteers as much as Ward 57. Also, since Ward 57 is supporting wounded veterans they are extremely flexible in finding volunteer positions to fit all veterans and their needs without making it to be an inconvenience to the organization, making it easier for my husband to also contribute his time.

I just want to thank Operation Ward 57 and all the people that donate to assist veterans and their families! As a combat veteran rated 100% disabled (PTSD), I have a lot of stress and sometimes it can add up to where you feel helpless. We have so much stress in our lives and it takes a toll on my family and I. I am so great full for the people that are so caring and willing to help others. I appreciate everyone of you for helping us buy groceries in our time of need. May God Bless you all!

I am blessed to be the teacher who with my students have been able to support this organization by creating the amputee teddy bears for some very amazing soldiers and their families. Brittney Hamilton works so hard to help these soldiers and their families. Such a great organization.
