Hello and Thank You....Military Warriors Support Foundation has changed The Duety Family for life. Before we heard about MWSF we were living in one trashy neighborhood and house after another barely getting by with the bills and the rent. We were unable to correct our credit score to be able to even get a loan for a car much less our own home. Thanks to MWSF we have brought our credit score up, learned how to better our finances, and also learned how to budget our money a lot better. The Program is helpful and gives the Current Military as well as retired Military the ability to own there own home where most would be unable to. I hope that MWSF can continue to give peace and assurance to other Military Families for a long time to come. We have given advice to friends of ours that are both current and retired Military about this program in hopes that they to can succeed with there life long goals and dreams. I am so pleased with the experience that myself and Wife have received with MWSF and how much information that the Budget Counselor has given us and advice that she provides us. She truly wants us to succeed in life.

My family and I thanks the Military Warriors Support Foundation for awarding us with something we have strived for a long time. Owning our own home means the world to us. We have been renting a home for the past few years that has a very bad termite problem and needed renovations. We dreamed of having a home were we could raise our children to be the best that they can be. We were astounded of how the process of applying was extremely easy and fast. We applied and turned in all of the documents we needed and in about two and a half weeks later we were told that we were awarded the house. Dealing with our case manager was a very pleasing experience. Ms. Savannah was extremely polite, helpful, and answered all questions we had. This organization is wonderful and I hope they continue to change lives for the better like they have done for us.

On March 1st 2017,after many prayers...the best news came from our case manager~the best out there Ms. Savannah‚̧. We were homeless,we were struggling and after 1 1/2 year from our application date MWSF came as a blessing upon blessings straight from God. Now we finally got to know that feeling that we imagined when we've seen someone wining the lottery on tv.It's like a dream and even if we are a month away from moving and making contact with our new home..it still hasn't sinked in.
The apartment we live in is our 5th address in last 6 years.Our two children are born in diferent states and every military personnel knows the feeling...But now we finally can think of a new beginning.With less struggle and more hope.My husband served America, fought for this flag and signed his life away for freedom.He was in the worst situation and the most attaked outpost COP Margah was his home for a year.I remember sending him packages with wipes (his shower at times), tabasco ( to make the MRE's taste better) and medication for his blistering feet and warm socks.. to go in missions where he lost brothers..allways will be remembered Manuel Vasquez and Danie Quintana( Se the clip of the attack actual footage from the explosion that was covered by BBC as well)...I know my husband heart and ours will allways bleed for these men that never returned to their loved ones. My husband witnessed their tears, their struggles and their hard work only to see them gone from this life and lost in eternity,just courageous men/women that sacrificed it all for this country. My husband served America and his ARCOM of Valor is pride to me..but to him it's just a piece of metal, a vivid memory of death.Death that he escaped..and hints of anger and sorrow for his brothers whom death trapped in its snare...What my husband has lost, can never be replaced.All the hours that were spent away from him, will never come back.But what HOPE is happening through MWFS and its sponsors,and its donors ! Hope that America hasn't forgotten her heroes and men and women of Valor. So Thank you everyone for a new beginning! Thank you from the deeps of our hearts! The Garcia Family.

I couldn't be happier and grateful MWSF is real. When I heard about it I didn't believe it. Two of my fellow Marines received homes and I still thought it was a scam. It's not. I just finished the program and am now a home owner. My life has be turned around and I am on my way of being successful. I can not thank MWSF enough.

We got a phone call today that we were selected for a home. Could not be happier. My son now has a room of his own and a yard to play in. Our family is so grateful. Thank you MWSF. You have no idea how much this has impacted our lives. My 7 yr old son cannot contain himself! My fiance' cried when we got the call.

All I can say is when a person feels down and out, you should really hang in there because you never know when your prayers will be answered and MWSF did just that, when they awarded my wife and I a mortgage free home in Illinois. After 10 years of service and three, year long deployments I was medically discharged from the US Army and fell upon many challenges. My wife and I ended up moving home and staying with family in a home that was not ours. I am sure others have had this happen and know that you never feel like yourself in another persons home when you are living there. Well after staying for quit sometime, we found out we were expecting a little baby on the way which caused us to worry almost instantly as to what we would do. Our prayers were answered when MWSF called and said we were awarded the home. We are still in shock, we fell almost silent when we were notified because we had never had anything that great happen in our favor( minus our little one coming :)). We have so much respect for organizations like this that really do give back to the veterans and military and not just talk the talk. Thank you MWSF and always keep doing what you do.!!!!!!!!

There are no words to describe what a blessing MWSF has been to our family...but I will try. After returning from a tour in Iraq (and 26 total years in the military), my husband suffered a TBI which triggered severe PTSD. My husband needed a fresh start, free from triggers and reminders of the past. Our mortgage-free home, that was provided by the Military Warrior Support Foundation, has allowed my husband (and our family) to experience LIFE again. Our home is in Florida> in a peaceful, and quiet neighborhood. This home is a BLESSING beyond BLESSINGS! My husband feels SAFE here and at peace. We also have the peace that comes from not having a mortgage hanging over our heads. Our prayer is that GOD will continue to bless MWSF and all of those involved. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

My husband was injured in Iraq. He suffers from a TBI, PTSD and tinnitus as a result from multiple blasts and IEDs. We were told about this program through the VA caregiver program and honestly, thought it was "too good to be true"...but NOT TRUE! The individuals that we spoke with were so professional and organized. It is very clear that they have a system that works and use it the exact same way for each applicant. Great people. Awesome LIFE CHANGING gift to give a soldier and his/her family!

Where would you be without Military Warriors Support Foundation?
I will be probably be living in the same undesirable area and same apartment I was living before be giving this amazing opportunity of owning a house.
MWSF has giving my family and I a decent neighborhood and house to call home. A house that my family and I are proud to come home, a house that is sacred for our family well being, and a house that give us the opportunity to get away from everything and just enjoyed us being a family.
Thank you to MWSF, donors and volunteers, God bless you all!
