This is my personal experience: Operation Ward 57 is immediately present and helpful as newly wounded military men and women arrive at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where my son spent nearly 2 years in 2011. Besides supporting the wounded these amazing people provide for the families of the wounded who have traveled to be with their loved one. Special holiday treats & meals, wagons to assist with transporting kids or belongings around the center, providing special events for wounded and their care-givers before & after they return home, financial assistance when required, organizing adopting a family for Christmas, etc., etc., etc. Honest, transparent and run from the director’s home. A truly “hands on” organization that responds to the needs of combat wounded families as they arise. Most highly recommended!!

We have worked with Operation Ward 57 for the past three years as a sponsor in the Adopt a Family program at Christmas. All three years have been a great experience. The organization fully explains the process and they are very organized. Working through this organization, you really feel that your money/efforts are helping those in need. As a bonus, my kids are all grown so I look forward to Christmas shopping and buying toys for little ones again.

For the past 5 years, our company has sponsored families for the holidays through Operation Ward 57. They have been a delight to work with, providing all the information we need up front and responding to questions quickly and thoroughly. The work they do to support the veteran community is year round and we are honored to play a small role in helping the soldiers and families who have sacrificed so much for our country. Operation Ward 57 is an outstanding organization and I have recommended them to both potential donors and to families who need assistance. I cannot offer enough praise for the beautiful and valuable work they and their volunteers do.

Operation Ward 57 runs a very well-organized and effective family adoption program for the Christmas holiday each year. We have participated as a sponsoring family in the past and I can confirm that they are head and shoulders above other programs.

Operation Ward 57 helped my family Christmas 2019. My husband a 18 year vet with multiple tours over seas lost his battle with PTSD November 2017. Such a tragic loss so close to the holidays leaves myself and my three young children with heavy hearts every holiday season. This program gave my kids a better Christmas than I ever could have provide on my own. It made them smile Christmas morning which filled my heart joy.
The sign up was easy and straight forward. They communicate all the requirements and answered all my questions right away. The company they paired us with was easy to work with and beyond generous.
I’m eternity grateful to Ward 57 for giving my kids smiles on Christmas morning. Thank you.

Last year we struggled with Christmas for our 3 kiddos because of my veterans ptsd and my health issues. I came across Operation Ward 57 and applied. The family we were matched with was so wonderful and got amazing gifts for the kids and we were able to do Christmas dinner also. More than I could have imagined! She found exactly what the kids asked for.

The Christmas Assistance we received has been life changing. Not just because of the gifts but the gift of the heart. This program brings the best out of people and helps those in need. With my Woubded Warriors, I can't work outside of the home and having 3 kids can make things very difficult. We are extremely thankful to this program.

We are a Gold Star family and holidays are tough since losing my husband. My family was matched with a family for Christmas. The family we were matched with was so kind and generous. The looks and smiles on my kids faces Christmas morning opening the present sent from Operationward57 family meant so much to me. My kids were in awe that a stranger was so kind to make sure they had a great Christmas. It was not the presents(but were perfect for each child) but how someone thought of them. Organizations like this help fill the hole in our hearts.

My son was on Ward 57 after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2011. While there, volunteers from Ward 57 would stop in to see what we needed. They hosted a fun "luau" for the wounded warriors and their families in the open, outside area the old Walter Reed had on the floor. Speaking just as a mom sitting bed-side for those long weeks, it was a perk in the normal routine and a very nice thing to do for our service men and women. My son transferred over to Walter Reed Bethesda, and now thankfully is out and back on track in his military career after 18 months+. Over all this time I've been aware of all Operation Ward 57 is doing for wounded military and their families. This organization doesn't forget the families; the mothers and the wives and girlfriends who are usually the care-givers and basically "live" at the hospital. It is a whole world that the majority of every-day citizens know nothing about. But Operation Ward 57 has their fingers on the pulse of what is needed in the rooms and corridors of Walter Reed/Bethesda as well as the veterans who have gone on with their lives outside of the hospital.

This Non-profit has created some pretty great memories for me, that fill the void just a little, in not being able to make any new ones with my brother. My brother was killed in Iraq. Not a day goes by that I don't miss him, that I don't feel the heartache, that I don't have survivors guilt.
Op Ward 57 doesn't forget our Gold Star families and that means a lot to us. Life does move on, slowly...
But they've been a positive part in our healing and enjoying life again with the events they get us tickets to.
I'm grateful

I sent an assistance request in during the COVID 19 quarantine. I’m a musician and lost a lot of gigs due to shut downs. My roommate is a bartender and lost her job for 8 weeks. Any little bit helps in getting by during this time of uncertainty. Operation Ward 57 was very quick with their reply, and was able to send an Amazon gift card for $200 via email, which will be used to order groceries, hygiene products, and cleaning supplies. Thank you so much for your help, and for all you do for veterans! Knowing you aren’t alone is half the battle when times are rough! :)

Found out about this amazing organization a few years ago when I signed up for their adopt a wounded warrior family program during the holiday season. Two friends and I had such a great time helping make our adopted family' Christmas a special one that we are still in touch several years later. We've also participated in it several times since then. It's a great honor to be able to help out one of Americas finest. I highly recommend helping out this organization any way you can, they do so much for our veterans.

Operation Ward 57 is on my very short list of Non- profits that are well- run trustworthy. I especially like that they tailor their help to the individual recipient and their family. Some need coffee pots and financial help. Some need food and recreational activities. All need something.

I remember the weekly fun meals they brought to the wounded warrior floor at Walter Reed during the 7 months I spent there with my son. Sometimes it was the only bright spot in our day, and the only time I left the hospital room.

More recently, Operation Ward 57 has sponsored teams to participate in the NaKoa Regatta in HI. My son describes that experience as “ life altering”.

Thank you Operation Ward 57 for sticking with our wounded warriors now for years. It is so important that they not feel forgotten, though their needs have changed.

I have been associated with Operation Ward 57 for several Christmases as I believe it is such worthy cause which reflects the real meaning of the season. Our family takes great pleasure in choosing very special gifts for our own families, but even greater pleasure for choosing things that we hope will make another family's Christmas special. The procedure is very well thought out and coordinated and they help you choose age appropriate gifts and gift certificates to help these Gold Star families.

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.

Operation Ward 57 is an outstanding organization that helps Veterans. I was blessed to receive a grant to help pay for my service dog training and basic vet care. With there help I was able to get my service dog without having to wait several years for one. Plus I was able to choose my own dog as a puppy and we are a strong team because we been together since day one. Operation Ward 57 made a major impact on my life giving me the grant to get my service dog certify, and forever changing my life.

I first heard about "Operation Ward 57" 5 years ago when I noticed a dear friend was wearing a shirt with their logo. She very proudly told me about the amazing organization that her daughter was involved with. It was a lot to absorb at the time, but I have become much more familiar with this non profit since. OPW57 takes it's name, I learned from the amputee's ward at Walter Reed Medical Center, and their scope of support, and assistance in recovery of wounded veterans is vast! It's scope is nationwide now.
Besides the obvious aid to amputees, OPW57 helps veterans and their families adjust to the challenges of life after a traumatic injury. From helping to arrange service animals, or help in navigating the complex system of government red tape, to offering comfort teddy bears to children. Customized with specific limb injuries and matching uniform, complete with a name. Even an adopt a family program at Christmas time! The focus on family support is a big part of the service OPW57 provides. Moral is helped by special visits to the ward, including gifts, catered meals, or even live music for patients, and family. Continued support includes group excursions to concerts, and sporting events to help veterans enjoy a better quality of life and create mutual bonds with other veteran families. With all of this, 22 suicides a day is still a reality, and OPW57 provides a helpline to any veteran in need of moral support. The number of services for injured veterans, and connections to other kinds of help is way too extensive to describe here.
At my age, I just missed the Vietnam conflict, thankfully, but I knew many personally who were drafted, and some who volunteered. I say "thankfully" for a very important reason. One that is mostly forgotten I feel. The Vietnam "war" was extremely unpopular! Returning vets were generally not considered to be heros, as today's vets are. They were badly damaged, and were let down by the system, spit upon by their fellow citizens, and generally abandoned to struggle with minimal medical aid and even less emotional assistance. The result was a huge number of Americans with little or no acceptance in society, or ability to be functional in their community or adjust to family life after a traumatic experience. I WISH there was such an organization as "Operation Ward 57" around in the '70s.
They are saving lives AND families!

This is a wonderful organization that has provided several opportunities for our family to go and have some fun! A much needed break from the everyday. Sometimes things are missed because of a lack of finances, here we have a chance to get to do some of those things. It also presents an opportunity to connect with other military families and caregivers. The caregiver aspect has been amazing too! They offer unique and fun things to have a break away for the day with other ladies that get it. Always chatting up other ladies at these and it’s fun to run into the same and also meet new.

Operation ward 57 is an amazing organization that has really been an active entity in my husband and my life since his injury in 2013. It’s always great when they have events that my husband can be a part of that remind him he’s not alone. Being with other injured vets and doing things he may have never dreamed of doing like the rowing regatta in Hawaii, show him his limitations are merely situation and with a little help he can achieve almost anything. This organization goes out of their way to really make everyone feel welcome and wanted and we’ve made some lifelong friends because of them,what more can you ask for?

My fiancé was injured in Afghanistan losing both leg and injuries to his dominant hand. Operation ward 57 provided him with haircuts on the ward when he was unable to leave the hospital. They would even come to the bedside if needed! They gave him luggage so he could visit his boys when they came home from Afghanistan, food when the hospital selection just didn't cut it anymore, 2 1/2 months and only a few selections gets pretty old pretty fast. They donated food processors to the families of wou de warriors so they could keep up good eating habits. They do so much and have wonderful people working for them. Jodi, you rock! ;) I hope they can continue to help families in need and soldiers who deserve all the help they can get. From my family to yours, thank you!

I can’t say enough great things Operation Ward 57 has done for wounded veterans. My club partners with them every year to raise money in an event called Rock and Rally for the Troops in Tacoma WA. It’s a great time planning the motorcycle ride and raising money and awareness so the leaders of the organization can put money in the right hands so people that need help get it. Director Brittany is always great to work with and dedicated ALOT of her personal time to see that this and other events get done right so that even the community feels good knowing their donations are going to a worthy cause and spent correctly. The proof is talking to a vet that received help, so I challenge everyone to talk to a wounded service member and their family that’s received help from OPW57 and hear their story of recovery and success!

I am a veteran my self, and I am very fortunate to have done very well after my service, made it through a tech school and have been able to work and raise a family. I will admit there were struggles, and with out family or that support you would get from the service, it can be overwhelming. I met up with Brittney Hamilton through a boating adventure and got to know and observe her dedication and efforts through operation ward 57 on various volunteer opportunities that she coordinated with me. It was a great experience and feeling to see a friends helping friends atmosphere. It’s the support that keeps on giving to many military veterans and their families that are in need, I had the opportunity to just show up and help a disabled veteran work in his yard through Operatiin Ward 57, attend a Ball at the state capital with my wife to promote Operation Ward 57, Volunteer at Rock and Rally for the troops. This non profit organizatiin goes above and beyond to reach out and find support on a local and national level. Food, clothing, lodgings, holiday and entertainment functions, and most importantly the promotion of mental and physical services to the veterans in their time of need and support. I look forward to continuing to volunteer and support this organization and I hope you will do the same.

OP57 has always been such a huge blessing to our large family. We have been involved with their Christmas program while my husband was transitioning out from the Army and this week another huge blessing. As many know NC was hit with hurricane Florence and a lot of RAIN. With that being said OP57 came around and helped us replace our food that we lost from losing power. That’s huge because we have 6 kids at home and that takes a large burden off of us to where we can focus on funds to repair our home. Thank you OP57 your love is recognized in our home!

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.

This organization was a friendly hand up when my husband (an army veteran) and I ran into some financial difficulties due to an error done by the VA. We were struggling financially and mentally, the amount of stress that was piled on top of us was sure to bury us alive. Instead we reached out and got a warm response from Brittney and Elizabeth, who asked us what we needed financial assistance with. In a matter of days, our bill was taken care of and we received a confirmation email as well. I thank God for the people that helped us and the fact that this organization is around to provide help to our deserving veterans. What a wonderful organization!!! Thank you all again.

I feel like 5 stars isn't nearly enough for what Op57 gives to the wounded community! Since my husband was inpatient at Walter Reed they have provided our family with so much not just in assistance, but helping my husband and myself reintegrating back into civilian life after injury. Brittney Hamilton (exec. director) does amazing work, and you can truly tell she loves what she does. It's not often we meet people who understand our life and also know how to help in a way that you don't feel pitied, but Brittney sets the bar high. Our first contact with Op57 was free hair cuts for those still inpatient. Then after retirement they have provided a wonderful Christmas for my family, even putting decorations on the out side of my home, because my husband can't. If you are looking for help, a sense of community, and people who really get you, Operation Ward 57 is the place for you.
