Review for Freedom Alliance, Dulles, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Amber R. McDaniel, I am Active duty Army. My current position in the Army is a Squad Leader at a Warrior Transition Unit. My job is to assist Wounded Warrior's back to Duty or to be a valuable Citizen of our Country. I have Wounded Warrior that came to our Unit because he needed to have the hole in his heart repaired. He is a great person and an even better leader. He is always willing to help and he never complains! While he was in the middle of going through the diagnosis and surgery process of his own injury, his wife of 17 years was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer. Despite all of this that is going on with them they have two beautiful children whom they still manage to care for and love just the same as before the Heart and Cancer.
Freedom Alliance had already been working with our Unit in effort to support our Wounded Warriors. Freedom Alliance dondated funds to our Warriors so they could have the proper cycling equipment to go on the Ride 2 Recovery. Freedom Alliance also provided a wonderful meal for not only myself and my fellow Cadre members but the Warriors Case Manager's and Primary Care Manager's also. Freedom Alliance is giving us the oportunity at the end of this month to go on a team building venture in Charlotte, NC. Freedom Alliance had asked if we had a Soldier here that not only deserved (they all deserve it) but needed a free family vacation to Florida I could onlt think of one and that was my Warrior and his wife and children. After a very difficult 18 months for them they were able to get some time to just have fun and not worry about treatments or therapy for one whole entire week. His children were beyond happy and loved getting to meet MIckey and Minnie Mouse with both their Mom and Dad!
Freedom Alliance is a wonderful Nonprofit Organization and I look forward to taking them with me to my next duty station to help them to conintue changing lives for the better!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was also one of the Soldiers that was able to have the proper cycling equipment to go on the Ride 2 Recovery to support my Warriors and all the other Wounded Warriors who have been injured overseas.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
