The Keith family
I am a Soldier that has been going through a rough time in my life dealing with my PTSD and other deployment related issues. I am a single father now of three kids and before Freedom Alliance I didn't know how I would make my kids Christmas different than how it was last year. My kids only received 1 gift a piece last year due to my lack of funds with me recently becoming a single father. I was contacted by several of the employees during Christmas about time about receiving the help this year. I never once imagined the care that people out in the world really cared about Soldiers until now. It has truly been a blessing that Freedom Alliance and the supporter of them are able to help Soldiers like me in need. After 3 deployments of heavy combat I normally have everything under control but now the deployment have taken a major toll on my life. This Christmas was one of the greatest things that has happened to me in my life. It takes a lot for me to shed a tear but this year seeing all the toys and the happiness on my kids face brought me to tears. For the first time I shed tears from joy instead on pain. I want to thank everyone that has helped every Soldier through the program and this is something that I will never forget. God Bless you all
A wonderful and helpful group of people. We are very grateful for what they have done. Very respectful and worked hard to keep informed. Thank you very much!
My husband who was out of a job due to medical issues and having surgery was concerned the holidays wouldn't be the best this year, we contacted Freedom Alliance to see if any help was out there and we were blown away by how nice Alicia was and how much she wanted to help. We got sponsored by an amazing family and to say it was a good holiday is an understatement. We have been blessed beyond words. This Christmas was by far the best we have had in five years. If it wasn't for Freedom Alliance and our amazing sponsor there wouldn't have been a Christmas at all really. I can not thank you enough. Y'all are angels, not only did you bring joy to our son's face you have also brought peace, balance, strength, wonderful memories and hope back into our family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Freedom alliance's Presents for Patriots program was a major life changer for us. We could not provide anything this year as money is just too tight. They came through in a HUGE way and helped us! It feels good to know we are appreciated!
My name is SGT Harrison Manyoma and i am grateful and more than honored to call Freedom Alliance "My Family". Freedom Alliance helped me take care of my family when I was laid off from my job back in October of this year and also helped with taking care of some past due bills when I was put on medical leave from my job back in March. Freedom Alliance helped with Christmas for my kids and truly blessed my family and I by seeing the kids be blessed. Freedom Alliance is more than just a Veteran's Organization, they are family and are deeply in our hearts. They took care of my family and I while I couldn't take care of us and that is more than I could have ever imagined or even asked for.
God has blessed us with new family and I'm proud to call Freedom Alliance "family".
Freedom alliance has been nothing but helpful during a rough time in our lives. They provided a wonderful Christmas for my children. the staff are super caring and nice. They have been great.
My name is Chris, I am a former Infantry Solider with the U.S. Army
I am the father of two children, an 8yo Daughter and 3yo Son. This year is a hard one for us financially due to my wife's schooling. My wife is currently attending PLU for nursing and the tuition is enormous even with financial aid.
A few months ago I received an email from my Wounded Warriors Advocate about Freedom Alliance and their Presents For Patriots Program. That Email was a saving grace. We applied and were accepted by a sponsor. This means a great deal to me and my wife. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday cause it reminds me of my grandparents and how they always went above and beyond to make a great Christmas, and with the help Freedom Alliance I too can give my kids great memories of the holidays.
On a personal note, As a Veteran I am so glad to see that there are people still out there helping our Soldiers (past and present). With all the negative things happening in and out of our country it is nice to know there are still Good-Doers out there.
While I was stationed at Fort Sam Houston in the Warrior Transition Unit I was put in to go on a trip with Freedom Alliance by my case manager. Freedom Alliance took my wife, 6 months old daughter and myself to Panama City Beach, Florida for what I would consider the best activity I have done with any non profit that helps wounded veterans. On this trip they gave a $1000 to do activities, which is significant because we didn't have a lot to spend on the trip, and then they hired a nanny for one day so me and my wife could go do something by ourselves. They also rented each family that was there a rental car so we had a car to get around in. This organization is such a great organization they go above beyond to help out our service men an women.
Freedom Alliance has helped me amd my family during a time of need. I am pending a medical discharge due to things that happened overseas. The money was tight to say the least and my family had to save to deal with our transition out of the military; as well as pay of debt. Freedom Alliance insured that my kids would not notice the struggle that my family is going through with the presents they are donating for this years Christmas. As a veteran I am so use to helping people and it's hard to ask for help. They insured me not to be ashamed of asking for help and treated me with the utmost respect. I am truly thankful for what they have done for me and would write a thousand more reviews if I could. It's hard for service members to ask for help because we are the ones who do the helping. To be honest it feels awkward for me to ask but they made it easy.
I was fortunate enough to attend a pheasant hunt with Freedom Alliance this last weekend. There were 4 veterans of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars invited to come. We all hit it off great from the time we met in the airport. It was like reconnecting with old friends. The trip was amazing and helped heal a lot of wounds. There was a Vietnam veteran there at the ranch named Richard and it was very cool to bond with him. Jim Stewart, Carl, Keith, and Adam made the trip a memorable one and we all got along like family. If I could ever have dreamed up a hunting trip to go on, it would have been exactly like this one. Thanks to Pepper at Freedom Alliance for organizing the trip. To be with my fellow war-fighters during this trip filled a gap I had in my life and I am sure we will continue to be in touch with each other in the future. I came home feeling whole, which is something I haven't felt in a long time. Thanks to all those who made it possible.
I had one of the best times of my life on the fishing trip provided by Freedom Alliance. I am a Viet Nam veteran and until this point no one has shown me the kindness and gratitude for my service. The trip down the Rogue River wonderful, scenery was great and the representative for Freedom Alliance was attentive to our individual needs. Although I am not experienced in fishing the boat captains provided us with excellent instruction on how to fish the river. The mixture of white water made it very exciting and the fishing was great ( I caught 19 fish). The various loges we stayed at were excellent and the food great. Also mixing with the veterans from my era and those from recent wars was a great experience. I enjoyed their comradely and friendships developed during the trip and am keeping in touch with many of them, I will cherish the time spent with them.
This Organization is the best in tacking care of the soldiers and their families, they're staff is well train and gives always the best advice and resources to the veteran. For my self they have done so much and special thanks to Wanda Cruz and all of the staff for all the hard work they do each day to provide us the best and is always excellent.. Fredom Alliance is the best organization for me..
Ryan and Alicia Behm did an amazing job at insuring the whole trip went smoothly! We would like to thank Freedom Alliance for this once and a life time trip for my wife and I , that we will remember and cherish forever! We honestly can not send enough gratitude towards this organization and everyone that supports it. Thank you all very much!
How can I say how much this organization has changed my life for the better
Imagine A beautiful white sand beach as a back drop for a vibrant man made forest with bridges leading from the vacation condominiums to the coasts of Pompano Beach, Fl. That is only about 5 minutes from Ft Lauderdale and about 25 from Miami. Our 7 days of relaxation began on July 11 2015 and ended On Saturday July 18 2015. The amenities included a Jacuzzi, swimming pool, full kitchen, dining area, 2 beds with all the luxuries of home. This wonderful vacation was donated to us by one of the wonderful contributors at Freedom Alliance. I am a medically retired Marine. I was on hemodialysis for 3.5 years. recently received a kidney transplant March 12, 2015. The struggles and pain my family went through was unimaginable, but Freedom Alliance kept us anchored. They helped, and guided us every step of the way. They took away a lot of the stress off my wife (who was born and raised in Japan, and now dealing with a sick husband in a new country), as well as my two toddler boys that were only beginning to understand the world around them. This was a much needed vacation from life itself. It reset a lot of tension in our family and showed us what it was like to live again. I was transplanted in March, but in July I learned to enjoy the small things once more. This was an opportunity that we would not have gotten had we have not of known of Freedom Alliance and the wonderful donor who helped bring our family back together through love, experience, and joy. Although it seems like the world and civilizations around us are becoming darker, there are still people with hearts of gold. They are changing lives everyday. Not for recognition, but to just lighten the load of others. I'm sure hen I have the chance I will do the same
What an awesome trip! A wonderful experience to the Flat Tops Wilderness area with some of the bravest United States Veterans I have had the pleasure of serving with. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Acquired some new brothers, and was able to visit with some brothers in arms that I would have never got the opportunity to see again after serving in OIF with. Thank you Freedom Alliance, as well as Adams Lodge Outfitters for allowing me this great opportunity. Your gratitude to United States Veterans is untouchable. Thank You !
As a FA scholarship recipient, Freedom Alliance has been more than just a check in the mail. They have supported me throughout the last four years of college and have provided me with another family. I love this organization and am so thankful for their support.
Words are not enough to express how thankful I am for Freedom Alliance. I am a recipient of the Scholarship Fund and I can tell you that Freedom Alliance goes above and beyond their purpose. They are more than just a check in the mail, they are family. They send care packages and birthday cards that remind us that we're remembered. They put on a retreat weekend which allows me and other recipients to bond over the loss of our fathers and create friendships that last a lifetime. They are one of the greatest nonprofits out there and I hope their name and purpose is made known to others all over the nation.
