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!

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.

Your organization's unquestioning and immediate response enabled a Veteran to travel to his 17 year old brother's funeral. At that heartbreaking time, your organization provided much needed support. Thank you.

Lost my job due to my disability. The fallen and wounded soldiers fund were able to help me quickly pay my next months rent. Without them making through this hard time would of been a lot harder. In short this organization is awesome. Nothing but help and positive things have happened dealing with them.
