To think of us on a day that changed our lives forever. Thank you for being there. I think if you weren't there and did what you did I wouldn't have felt so good about my day in Arlington National Cemetery. Thank you for thinking of the families of 8-6-11. God Bless all who were involved that day!!

First off this charity told me to go "f" myself. I have messages from the Board Chair and Executive Director...who is one in the same, which is illegal to the IRS. Second off they sponsored their co founder as an athlete. That is another violation of IRS standards because a staff or board member can not be compensated other than budgeted salaries. Thirdly they post the most horrible things on social media and curse all the time. No financials yet they claim to be Guidestar gold.

The Board Chair can serve as Executive Director so long as there is no Conflict of Interest. A Conflict of Interest would arise if the Executive Director was voting on the Board to determine levels of compensation, but there are no paid positions per the Warfighter Foundation ByLaws and Articles of Incorporation, so there is no Conflict of Interest. The Co-Founder who became a sponsored athlete was not a Board Member or part of the Staff at the time of his sponsorship. Additionally, the sponsored athlete received no funds. The Warfighter Foundation is a Guide Star Gold participant. Here is the link: http://www.guidestar.org/organizations/46-3074674/warfighter-foundation.aspx The organization has filed its annual 990 report (as required by law by the IRS) and it is public. Our social media is administrated mainly by mothers and wives of fallen service members. It is doubtful that they would post anything derogatory or distasteful. As always, the organization is conducting itself professionally and legally. We appreciate your feedback!

I am honored, grateful and humbled to be part of The Warfighter Foundation, along side of several other combat veteran Marines. The Warfighter Foundation has given me the chance give back to those who continue to serve and go downrange and fight all in the name of Liberty and Freedom. I made myself a promise a long time ago that before I got out of the military, I would do whatever I can, as long as I can stand on my own two feet, to help my fellow military brethren in whatever ways possible. I am very excited to see how far we can raise the bar and push the envelope with our upcoming events. There's a phrase that goes, "the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." and I think it fits all too perfectly with our main mission. I am damn proud to be a Warfghter! God bless our nations Warfighters! Semper Fidelis

I have followed Warfighter Foundation since the beginning. They have definitely done everything they promised and more. In todays world, it is hard to choose a veterans charity to trust, but they have my trust.

The Warfighter Foundation has an excellent team of individuals dedicated to a focused cause, helping our combat heroes in any way they possibly can. Their following on social media has grown into more of a family who is always active and supportive of anything they do. This is essential for a non-profit because it allows them to give back to organizations who donate to them in the form of exposure. The Warfighter Foundation has not only gained the trust of the military community but also their respect, it is for this reason they will prove to be a vital component in helping our Veterans and reducing the national suicide average that is currently at 22 per day.

I have worked with many veteran organizations in the past, but Warfighter Foundation by far is the only organization that is doing it right! Semper Fi!

I volunteered during the 2nd Annual 100 Mile Hike in memory of Operation Red Wings. It was such an incredible experience to walk with such heroes and for an amazing cause - to raise awareness of Memorial Day! I will be sticking by Warfighter Foundation! By the way, I drove all day and night from Louisiana to participate!
