To think of us on a day that changed our lives forever. Thank you for being there. I think if you weren't there and did what you did I wouldn't have felt so good about my day in Arlington National Cemetery. Thank you for thinking of the families of 8-6-11. God Bless all who were involved that day!!

Exceeded my expectations. Strange to get a call from Afghanistan to speak to an advisor... haha but had no clue that these guys were mostly deployed ALL the time. WARFIGHTERS!

One year ago, almost exactly on the day, Warfighter gave me a call that forever changed my life. I was nearly homeless after leaving the military and couldn't find a job. The advisors at Warfighter and through their combat to contracts program helped me find a career with the Department of State. Thanks fellas, if there is anything you ever need.

Let me start by saying there are many... many, many, many.... terrible charities out there that do nothing but line their pockets under the guise that they help veterans. Warfighter, is not one of them. I greatly appreciate the opportunity you gave me to volunteer recently and got to see first hand that the individuals running Warfighter (which is by no means a small charity) are also working full time jobs (most of them work as PMC's in Afghanistan and Iraq) - that in itself was commendable. The fact that these guys are using their spare time (mostly all of it) to run this amazing charity - all while being in harms way and literally dumping money of their own pockets to keep it afloat. When they told me they didn't have an office I was pretty confused, but now I completely understand. Warfighter Foundation is ran by actual Warfighters. Semper Fidelis gentlemen!

Keep doing what you are doing. There are a lot of guys out there too selfish to help or too afraid to ask for help. You guys do help, even if you have no idea.

Hoping the 100 Mile Hike comes back! The last one y'all did was amazing and I enjoyed it so much. It was awesome to get together with brothers from the vet community. But even more so, knowing that we were doing it to raise awareness of Memorial Day and to honor the men of Operation Red Wings - topping it off with ending the hike to meet the surviving family members like Patsy Dietz and then surprisingly meeting J.J. Watt as well and legendary Navy SEAL Dave Hall.

I was at your screening of "American Sniper" and WOW!!!! I had no idea that Jeff Kyle (the brother of US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle) would be there and then not only that but Debbie Lee (the mother of US Navy SEAL Marc Lee) was also there and all the donations Warfighter raised benefited Debbie's foundation!!! Like holy cow, it was absolutely amazing (and free for veterans). It was great to mingle and talk with all the veterans and so many Navy SEAL's that had known and served with Chris. Then on top of that, seeing Derek Weida from all the Mat Best videos!!! I had no idea how well connected into the veteran community the Warfighter Foundation really was, I just kind of thought you guys were a small local group but I was so wrong. This is an astounding organization and that event blew my mind!!!!

Love this charity! Very excited to see you guys in D.C.!!!

Ignore the negative comments by those cowards. The anti troop supporter liberals can only try to hurt you by leaving negative reviews haha.

The couple of people who keep repeating the negative reviews on here are dishonorable and should be ashamed of themselves. This charity is the reason why I am not a homeless veteran or have committed suicide.

Is this group even still around? I guess we'll find out if, after receiving another bad review, there are suddenly a slew of fake positive reviews to keep their meaningless "Top Rated" award from Great Nonprofits. If this organization has closed up shop, then good riddance; there are so many terrific organizations in this country that serve veterans, and Warfighter Foundation was never one of them.

Yes, Warfighter Foundation is still around! Sorry, we have no "fake" reviews, the reviews are usually around the same frequency as the time of the request for reviews. Generally, if we ask our supporters to give us reviews they usually do so within 24 hours of the request. Warfighter Foundation is a Guide Star Platinum for transparency, higher than a majority of charities, as well as being one of a few charities that operates with no paid positions (all volunteer). We apologize for your disappointment and hurt feelings. Maybe there is a good charity you can find that can help heal your sadness and anger. At the top of this page is a search option, perhaps start with a search for an LGBT organization. Thanks!

Thank you for letting us help with your charity event last year! The screening of American Sniper with the teams and families was amazing! Jeff Kyle and Debbie Lee being there made it exceptional.

Their Facebook has been a continued source of therapy. Sounds funny, but they have allowed me to speak on a national level about my concerns.
