We are a group of workers at Lowe's in Columbia MD. Our company helped Aid Our Veterans last summer build some wheel chair ramps for the veterans with physical handicaps. Aid Our Veterans has a home in Baltimore where they help disabled veterans from the Vietnam war up to the Iraq & Afghanistan war. It was so heart warming to volunteer and build these ramps for our injured soldiers.
Jobless, Disabled and losing hope. The VA social worker got me in touch with Aid Our Veterans. They stopped my eviction and helped me get current. They worked with my VA representative to settle my disability case. Now my bills are current and I have a livable monthly income. These people at Aid Our Veterans really care. Thank You for the help.

I am so thankful to Aid Our Veterans for their recent help. I am a veteran who found myself for the first time in my life, unable to pay all my bills. I was injured on the job several months ago and my income was cut down to 1/3rd what I was used to. Well it didn't take long for all my savings to disappear. I'm set to get back to work just before Christmas but the car finance company was ready to repose my car. Aid Our Veterans provided me with enough money to let me keep my truck. Now I can get back to work and get ahead of my bills again. Thank You, Aid Our Veterans and all the generous contributors to their organization. A Grateful Marine, Annapolis MD.
I am so grateful to Aid Our Veterans. My husband and I have run into some difficult times and we got behind on our bills. Just as the weather turned cold our electric company was getting ready to discontinue our service. The good news is that my husbands disability was finally approved so we will now be able to pay our bills. The GREAT news is that Aid Our Veterans helped us out by getting our electric bill current! Thank You Debra, all the other veterans at Aid Our Veterans. Anna Marie P.
1st of all, What a God Send!!!! I am a senior citizen who has become homeless and out of work. The past four years have been devastating for me. My husband of 30 years passed away, we met when I was in the Air Force, and all of a sudden my life went out of control. I've lost almost everything, house, cars, all my savings, and was evicted from my apartment. A friend told me to call Aid Our Veterans and I am sure glad I did. With little notice they set up a team of Vets to help me move all my possessions into storage and found a temporary place for me to stay. After a couple of weeks they helped me move again into a longer term place but that fell apart after only two weeks. Well Aid Our Veterans was there again picking me and my stuff up and getting me moved. I'm currently looking for a permanent place with the help of the VA and Aid Our Veterans is storing my stuff until I move again. I don't know what the future will bring me, but I do know that with Aid Our Veterans I don't have to worry about my items or moving. Thank You guys, especially Tom Conlan. An angel sent from heaven.

I was attending a gun show last weekend when I came across this organization. The woman, Suzette, was sharing information about their charity and told me about their Hematite program. Hematite is a magnetized stone that they turn into jewelry and wear it to reduce aches and pains. Well Aid Our Veterans program is that every time someone buys a piece of Hematite jewelry for themselves, they, Aid Our Veterans will then give a piece of jewelry out to a recovering Veteran on behave of the customer. I was skeptical so I skipped at buying anything and just made a dollar donation. About 40 minutes later I was in the aisle behind her and watched as she greeted a war wounded Vet in a wheel chair. "Welcome Home Honey" she said, and then got into a long discussion about his service and how his recovery was going. She gave this veteran a necklace, 2 bracelets, 2 rings and a necklace and bracelet to his girl friend. The soldier asked her how much and she said "nothing for you hero. All these fine people around here have donated to our organization so we can provide these to you. It's our way and their way of saying Thank you for your service!" WOW! The crowd cheered this soldier and you could see the emotion in Suzette's eye, a tear of such heartfelt appreciation. Thank You Aid Our Veterans and especially Suzette. And Yes, I went back by and bought a bracelet.
I meet Rick at a gun show in Texas this weekend and he was a fantastic guy. I am having a difficult time making ends meet. Rick was telling me about the efforts of Aid Our Veterans and how they could help me. Rick made a phone call and then told me he could find some part time work for me next week. It will be enough to help me make ends meet and stop my decline. Aid Our Veterans is a great organization. Here in Texas besides me they have 5 other people working. Plus they help out homeless Veterans every week with emergency food, clothing and shelter. We need a whole lot of more organizations like this. Our Veterans deserve so much more then what they receive. Thank You Aid Our Veterans and Rick.
What a Fantastic charity Aid Our Veterans is. My uncle who served in the Korean war is disabled and in need of assitance in his waning years. One of his pleasures in life is visiting gun shows on weekends so I get him together, grab his wheel chair and take him to a gun show. A few weeks back on a weekend we meet a worker from Aid Our Veterans at the gun show and my uncle talked to the gentelman about his issues with the VA, trouble getting around, and more. Within a week! Aid Our Veterans had a electric wheel chair delivered to my uncle so he can get around on his own. They are also working with the VA to get him the care he was promised. This past weekend my uncle and I went to another gun show here in central PA. We came across a lady working for Aid Our Veterans and my uncle was so overcome with absolute appreciation, he began showing off his mobility in his electric wheelchair and spent the rest of the day telling everyone at the show to support Aid Our Veterans and their mission. This is such a worthy charity with fantastic people who remember ALL our veterans, even the ones from the Korean war. Thank You Aid Our Veterans!
Aid Our Veterans came to our rescue. As a Vietnam veteran I have been suffering from a war injury and some kind of bad infection for the past 40 plus years. Well it finally got so bad that I had to have the lower part of my left leg amputated. Aid Our Veterans has been doing all the coordination between the VA and the doctors to arrange for the hospital care and now they are working on getting me all the rehabilitation work. It is tough enough to lose a limb but to have to do all the paper work and make so many calls and fight the bureaucracy would have been to overwhelming for me. Thank you Diane for all your help. Thank you Aid Our Veterans for all your help. Sincerely, Ralph from Baltimore
Aid Our Veterans Here - Thank you Ralph, for your kind words and of course for your service to our country. Semper Fi
I'm a Army soldier who was injured in Afganistan. I'm in recovery at Walter Reed and Aid Our Veterans hosted a group of us a few weeks ago. They picked us up and took us to a Motorcycle show giving us a few hours away from the hospital. Aid Our Veterans did this for us at no charge and just let us be us. No publicity, no using us as a bunch of trained monkeys. We were allowed to just be us in the crowed just like everybody else. Two men from Aid Our Veterans spent their Friday night picking us up and taking us out to the motorcycle show, I know that they could have been doing a lot more fun things on a Friday night then driving us around, but that's what they wanted to do. Thank You, Aid our Veterans and please thank the two men who were so kind to us.
Aid Our Veterans - You are more then welcome my friend. however we owe you and your fellow soldiers a lot of Thanks, for all you do. And Thank you for your Service
