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.

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.

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!

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.
