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.

I am a 100% disabled Gulf War Era Veteran and needed assistance when the engine died in my car leaving me no way to get back and forth to doctors appointments. FWSF was able to make one of the payments toward getting a new engine in my car and they were very polite and helpful in the process. Great job, keep up the great work helping local Michigan Veterans and thank you so much again for the help.

Lynn was a remarkable resource to our family during our time of need. We were facing multiple combat injuries leading to a medical retirement and months of lag with the VA in benefits. The FWSF jumped aboard and helped us through the transition from Army to civilian. We are grateful for their support and would encourage others to utilize this great organization; one of the few who truly supports and follows through putting veterans first.
