The work that WHF does in support of our current conflict veterans is simply amazing! As a vet who works with vets I see the problems/issues that this current group faces on a daily basis. The WHF does so much to help these men and women in all facets of their lives: financially, personally, familial.

I stumpled upon the Wounded Heroes Fund (WHF) at work, and when I learned of their mission, it made me smile. An OEF Veteran myself, it's great to know that there are organizations in the community such as the WHF that will go to great lenghts to help and support returning OEF/OIF vets. This year, WHF funded me and other OIF/OEF vets to participate in the annual Volkslauf. It was a great experience, and to do an activity with other OEF/OIF vets was trully amazing. Another activty that I will be participating in is the hikes that WHF does, these hikes are amazing and absolutely therapeutic in nature for me. Wounded Heroes Fund is definitely making great changes in the community.

I have always been a patriot, a fact that culminated in joining the Marine Corps during Vietnam, but as great as I felt about serving my country then, it is even a greater honor to serve those who serve America today. This all volunteer service has kept much of the terroristic acts "over there" and the sacrifices of these brave men and women have elevated them to the new "greatest generation" as many serve tour after tour in the very throat of the battle.

WHF has given me a vehicle to provide comfort, care, housing, support and fellowship with those we serve and it has been an honor second to none. We work hard to ensure that the community support is used in a manner that shows the "communities" commitment and love and I think that this message has been received, loud and clear.

The WHF has done so much for me and my family and continue to do for all of us and our families!! Many organizations focus on just is the vets but they can relate and actually help in things that are not on the brochure as long as it benefits the veterans and our family members!!! I love everyone at The Wounded Heroes Fund!!!!

The Wounded Heroes Fund has helped both me and my family financially, and mentally. We have been VIP at a hockey game, spent the day at our fairgrounds eating great food and mingling with fellow veterans, and also will be providing us with a Christmass tree this year. We also were invited to ride the WHF float in the Veterans Day Parade!! Such an amazing organization with a group of caring selfless people. I have been blessed to meet them and will continue to support and share with others the great the WHF does for OUR community!!! THANKS TO YOU ALL, from my heart.
