There are many stories to tell but this is one I have selected. A 92-year-old veteran living by himself was reported as not having proper medical care due to his lack of knowledge of VA services and means of transportation. When United Military Care was notified they immediately notified me, a retired U.S. Army Officer, and I took action asap. Although the veteran passed, it was the actions of United Military Care that provided this veteran the satisfaction that he was a hero to all of us.

As a retired military officer, I have been able to help many retired military families with donations provided by United Miltary Care, Inc. I have been invited to speak at many functions in the past, the two most recent have been at Kennesaw State University, and the ALIF Institute, both pertaining to patriotic Arab-Americans who have served in the U.S. Armed Services. These activities provided the opportunity for me to meet many U.S. veterans and their families in which I was able to help with support from United Military Care. This organization has been there when our veterans needed them and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

During the time I lost my job and was losing my home, United Military Care stepped in and provided food/groceries for my family. My husband and I were so busy trying to save our home that we couldn't afford to buy food. They were truly a blessing for me and my family.

I had a great experience with the ladies when I attended a yard sale in Marietta Ga. They didn't hesitate to help me find some good items for my grand baby. They really believe in what they was doing for the veterans.

Giving of your time to help those who served our country is about the most rewarding thing a person can do. I go home grateful every time I interact with a veteran. United Military Care provides all the fixings for Thanksgiving meals, toys for military kids at Christmas and food/clothing for homeless veterans through outreach at Ft Mac. Those are just the big things! Then there are those phone conversations with veterans that need to hear a friendly voice on a bad day - we reach them through our Battle Buddy Program. Home visits are made to our veterans who are home alone or in Assisted Living/Nursing Homes. The Battle Buddy program partners veteran with a veteran for those "buddy" conversations. All visits are include a food bag to supplement what may be a once-a-day meal delivery program. United Military Care can always use more volunteers and more donations to continue the awesome work they do making lives a little easier and a lot brighter for our Veterans.

I have been involved with United Military Care since it began. Over the years I have been a business owner working with some of the largest companies and organizations in the world. I also have been associated with several non-profits, and there have been times when I did not like the way some of these non-profits were run or spent their donations.

United Military Care is an exceptionally well run organization. The mission of United Military Care is one that I fully believe is needed. Although there are many Veteran related non profits, United Military Care helps the Military families and Veterans in a special way, by providing food, clothing and help with housing and benefit related issues. They are a very deserving organization.

Being the child of a career military father, I understand first hand the needs of families who have a deployed parent. I am proud to have the opportunity to volunteer at United Military Care. Every one involved has a passion for helping veterans. Daily activities may bring a veteran who can't afford to buy shoes for his four kids. UMC provides those shoes. A female veteran may need help with food, so gift cards are given. A Veteran with a disabled child is living in a negative environment. A volunteer spends hours on the phone listening to issues and then researches how to get the family into a place of their own and help for the child. Some of my favorite memories are the smiles and sometimes tears of joy when UMC provides an opportunity to "shop" for Christmas toys to make their children feel loved when Santa comes to visit Christmas morning. United Military Care is a caring group of volunteers who make things happen for military families and veterans in need.

This organization really cares about our veterans and active duty military families. I've had the pleasure of volunteering with them and what I experienced was awesome. They took great care in talking to people on the phone and I noticed how they made sure the people they spoke with knew they cared. When in need one of the first things people look for is someone who will actually take the time to listen. United Military Care is the very best I've seen yet.
