I simply like their attitude in the whole process!!!!!! Funny comments, light outlook, tell it straight, professional and very uplifting. I like to be on their site just to read their messages and marketing talk.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a true pleasure to do business with someone who truly believes it what they are doing.

I can't remember how I first heard about Boot Campaign but being a person who 1-loves boots and 2-loves Vets I knew I wanted to get my Boots On!. First I ordered the "Tac Force 8" Women's Tan Tactical Boot with Zipper". I will admit there was a mistake and I was sent the men's size instead of the women's. I called Boot Campaign right away and I was first impressed that I actually spoke to a human. She could not have been nicer or more sorry for the mistake. The mistake was corrected immediately and I now have my boots. They are more comfortable than any shoes (or boots) that I have. I wear them most of the time. Since the ones I bought were tan color, I just ordered "GX-8 Gore-Tex Black for Women" what well dressed woman doesn't need a good pair of black combat boots? I continue to have my "Boots On!".

I love the Boot Campaign folks! I can't say enough about what a great thing it is that they do to recognize those who give their all for their country. The products are high quality - I love my boots and can't wait for my new t-shirts to arrive. I'm sure it will be soon because the service is great - thank you, Boot Campaign!

My husband and I have a son in the Army and a son-in-law in the Air Force. We are always looking for ways to support our military. I recently heard about the Boot Campaign during a Home and Family segment on the Hallmark Channel. What a wonderful organization! We just ordered our boots and are now looking into becoming part of the Boot Squad. We are so very thankful for our precious military men and women and are happy to support this awesome campaign!

I love, love, love what you're doing for our servicemen. Our grandson graduated from boot camp, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas in April (unfortunately the day of the shooting incident). He strongly believes in his country & fighting for it. We are so proud of him, thus we are happy to find a new way to support his beliefs and his endeavors! Your web sight is great and we will be happy to spread the word!

I watched television today where staff Sgt. Joey was on talking about how he lost his legs and the meaning of patriotism. It made me pause and think. He is a true inspiration. This brief message said so much it was the least I could do to help such a deserving cause. Thank you for your service and support of others who have fought.

I saw these two ladies on Pu4sui5 channel talking about a "boot campaign". After I heard what it was for I had to check it out. They have great products and 5hey give money to help veterans. First as a veteran I'd like to say thank you. We need more great ideas like this to help those vets that need it. Our government just isn't doing enough. So please take time to check out their online store. It's easy to use and prices are good.

Long story short... I am an internationally known professional photographer, I come from a long line of military people in my family, and I married a woman who dedicated over 10 years in the US Army before being injured her 2nd tour to Iraq resulting in her being forced to medically retire. We always are looking to see what charities that support our vets and what they are actually doing to help. Been following Boot Campaign for a bit and just felt they are doing some great things with the provisions they have.
I just purchased a shirt from them as obviously majority of spouses are female. I want to show support to those FEMALE vets like my wife who have a man at home who supports what they do.

This is my go-to organization when I make a donation "in leu of flowers" in someone's memory. I also keep a supply of their CDs in my car/purse to give out to military personal/veterans when I see them. Earlier today, I followed a Vietnam Vet on his motorcycle until he stopped and I thanked him for his service and handed him a CD. Just now I ordered my second set of 10 to have on hand. Last December, a friend and I raised almost $4,000 for the Boot Campaign.

I love this organization and am proud to support them!

I've purchased from the Campaign many times now. Their eagerness to help make sure you get what you've ordered and it meets your expectations is amazing. My most recent order wasn't working out, so they helped me set up an exchange for a product that works for me. Thanks for what you do, and who you do it for.

I don't have a story per say. What I do have is access to a charity that is awesome. I've been meaning to place my order for some time now but always found an excuse to "do it tomorrow". Well enough is enough. Pulled the trigger last night and am very happy. I know the money is well spent, I get a kick ass pair of new boots and will wear them proudly. I have already "Liked" their F/B page and have shared it a lot. I also shared it on a separate page for my hobby business. I cannot wait for these t come and start rocking them in my office. Keep up the great work for an even better cause!!!!

My family has always been military. My grandfathers both served, my maternal grandfather in the Air Corps before it was the Air Force, becoming a POW and surviving the Bataan Death March. My paternal grandfather was in the Navy and served during the Korean War.

My father joined the Air Force immediately after going to college on the GI bill, and became a C-141 pilot after he lost a buddy during fighter training. Flying is his life. He served during Desert Storm, Desert Shield, that mess in Bosnia and Somalia. I would sit with my mother and sister and watch the anti-aircraft fire, praying he would make it.

He now flies for a civilian cargo outfit, and they have a bunch of DoD contracts, so he still flies into Kabul and such, occasionally with supplies for soldiers and sometimes with the soldiers himself. He's told me that he wishes very much that he could get back in the fight and serve again.

I was raised as a military child, and my parents instilled such a strong sense of responsibility in me that it kept me alive when my severe depression made me suicidal. So I want to thank each and every one of you for your bravery, your sacrifice, your sheer refusal to quit. You save lives in ways you don't even know about. You saved mine. Thank you all. I am more grateful than I can ever express.

Boot Campaign is an amazing Non Profit organization. The fact that over 80cents per every dollar goes back into the programs and to our veterans sold me! I know for me personally Boot Campaign has changed my life. I now see the dire need to give back to our veterans. It is more than putting a bumper stick on your car saying you support the troops. Boot Campaign is giving relief to those in need, and changing lives. Thank you Boot Campaign for being genuine and transparent!

This has got to be one of the best nonprofit organizations for vets and their family members. With the kick off of Santa Boots this year, I was able to see them at work. The lives that were touched by this event was heart warming. When the people at Boot Campaign say thank you for your service, they mean it. Thank you Boot Campaign for all that you have done and will do for our veterans.
