My name is Alex Szakacs and my wife is Becky Szakacs. We moved to Michigan back in 2014 and have been fighting with the Veterans Affairs ever since. I served in the U.S. Army in the infantry, was hurt while in Afghanistan, and then medically discharged. In late December 2015 my knee completely blew out (which was part of my service connected injuries) and I wasn't able to work anymore. I had my first spine surgery scheduled in March 2016 previously to this happening. The VA refused to pay me an increase in disability till after surgery is actually done. So for the first few months of 2016 we lost most of my income and started in a downward spiral. After having my surgery on my spine in March, my wife got into a car accident in June to which now she is out of work and possibly going to need a spine surgery too. Then in October I finally had my ACL replaced after months of struggling to have the VA send me outside as the VA doctors had continued to tell me I was not hurt. I now am having another spine surgery March 2017 because the first one was not successful.
So during all of this we had many issues finaicially and by the grace of God we found the Fallen And Wounded Soldier Fund. They have saved my family from
becoming homeless and losing everything!!! This is the best organization we have ever been a apart of. They are also the only group, organization of any sort, or program that was wiling to help us before losing everything. Most things that are out there are for after the damage is done and it's to late. Their are some major organizations out there that are very popular but are not willing to help at all.
Bottom line is we will be apart of this nonprofit organization for the rest of our lives, not only have they helped us financial but the people you will meet through the events are amazing. You meet other veterans and their families but also so many ther people. Some of these people are the volunteers that make all this possible which they do on their own time, on their own dollar to give back to people in need. Thank you so much Fallen and Wounded Soldier Fund for everything.
What an amazing program!!! I had fallen on financial hardship and my vehicle broke down, leaving me unable to provide food for my child and make it to regularly scheduled doctor appointments. I had reached an ultimate manic depression and considering giving up I gave effort to see if there was help out there for a veteran like myself and the fallen and wounded soldiers fund got me back on track mentally and financially by helping with my vehicle insurance policy for 6 months and payed for the repairs of my vehicle. I am so thankful and grateful for programs such as this, this organization honestly saved my life and has impacted my mindset forever. THANK YOU!
My husband was honorably discharged from the marine corps with him only needing 5 more years til he could retire, it has put us in a very tight spot having to move across country back where our family lives to get back on our feet again. The Fallen & wounded soldiers fund has been amazing and has helped us out a lot. I can't thank you all enough for all you have done for us. Sincerely
Ron and Tina Irwin
We were struggling during a gap between classes, and they assisted us.
This nonprofit organization goes above and beyond for the soldiers that run into financial issues and more. I have struggled financially many times over the years due to my injuries and they have been there to help me as much as possible. I owe so much to Lynn Phillips and this organization. They don't make you wait for help and they treat you with respect and importance. Many organizations turned me away or never contacted me when I asked for help. The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund has been there from day one and I hope to one day be able to donate to their organization because I know that they are definitely helping soldiers and their families. Thank you so much!!
The Fallen Wounded Soldiers Fund, have been extremely helpful to me in my time of need. Dr. Lynn Phillips is a GODSEND! GOD bless her and the organization!
I am disabled veteran that fell on hard times and The Fallen & Wounded Soldier's Fund helped me out and got me and my family back on track. So grateful for there help.
The fallen and wounded soldiers fund has helped me out tremendously when I was down on my luck with no one to turn to. I'm a marine veteran and I have contacted Lynn Phillips quite a bit since finding out about this organization. But I now have a job but I know if things ever get hard for me again I know I can count on this organization for a helping hand.
As a former vet I've had suffice to say some challenging moments both in and out of service. By Gods grace He has always had an open door of love for me that has helped. One of those doors is Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund. After a chat they helped my situation and lightened my load without question. They were recommended to me through Active Faith and Liv. Cty Veterans. They help service members. God Bless them abundantly they're top notch and care about service men and women.
Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund was there for me when other organizations said I didn't meet their requirements. I don't know where I'd be today without the help and guidance of such a wonderful organization.
I want to thank fallen wounded warriors

My VA disability was garnished after a medical withdrawal from school last semestet and a clerical mistake regarding my address.
FWSF kept me from losing my truck, my phone, and my Internet which I needed for school this semestet.
This is a wonderful organization! They have helped my family and they do not make it difficult to receive help. Very kind people! We are so thankful to them and all that they do!
Wanted to say thank you a million to the organization that has helped us when we were down. Who has been there right away with love and support. This orgnization is by far one of the best I've seen around. They respond quickly and had no problem reassuring you they are there for you. Lynn is amazing with such a beautiful heart. Thank you for being our heroes Xoxoxoxo
I would like to say a big thank you to Lynn and the organization. They have helped me out when I thought all was lost. I can't say thank you enough times to show how much I appreciate it. So thank you again. You made me feel like i was family and just wasn't a number waiting to be helped.
Lynn is awesome,the organization is great and has God's speed. I don't where I would be today without their help. But I do know today is better and brighter because of them. Thanks Airborne All The Way.
They are so wonderful and caring people as soon as we call we felt like we were talking to a friend about the troubles our family was facing since my husband was out of work due to a service disability they really do care for our veterans. And God bless them for everything they do
I am an Army veteran and a single father. I returned to school this January and have had problems with the VA regarding my GI Bill payments. The amount I was receiving each month was barely enough to cover food and electricity costs. As a result, my daughter and I faced eviction from our apartment. Not only did the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund save us from homelessness, their calm presence in the storm provided hope where there had been none. I sincerely hope that my degree leads me to a career that enables me to donate to this great organization for many years to come. Words cannot describe my gratitude! Thank you so much!
Our family would like to say THANK YOU! The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund and it's staff were extremely helpful to us. My husband is a disabled veteran and this is the first non profit I will say is just that NONPROFIT. ..they assisted us and very quickly. We will be forever grateful and supportive.
My husband just retired from the United States Army after serving his country for 33 years. The Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund blessed us with $3016.69 to help pay our bills and to buy food so that we could survive until his retirement pay starts. I thank God for the FWSF. Thank you so much for your help, Jeanette Jones, proud Army Wife.
