One of the only nonprofits I will give my money to. I have seen first hand that the donations are given to those that need it most.

There was a surgical nurse who had problems when she returned from Iraq. She had not been given the opportunity to meet any soldiers after they went through rehab and therefore thought her part in cutting their limbs off was a terrible thing. When Defenders found out about this situation they brought the nurse to their golf tournament to spend the day with some of the amputees. Her life changed that day, she is now a mother and has a happy life because someone took the time to do one small thing that made a difference to her. When you make a donation to an organization it helps to know how your money is being spent and this organization has changed alot of soldiers lives starting with one small thing.
