Review for Luke's Wings, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The creation of Luke's Wings, from the founder to the entire staff, should be praised for all that they do. Not only do they do an outstanding job uniting our wounded service members with family and friends, but they do it with a passion that is matchless. They do so much more for each person they support than their website even describes...and they do it with heart and soul. They are tireless patriots who stop at nothing to accomplish their mission. I have seen countless families and friends united over the years, and that is a service that only Luke's Wings provides. The enormous scale of their support is over the top. They never stop. 365 days of the year they are bringing people together. When you are hospitalized, your recovery depends on the support of loved ones, and that means friends as well as family. Luke's Wings is the best. At the top of their field. No one does it better.

Review for Luke's Wings, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Though I am not a member of the military nor a family member of a wounded warrior, I do spend considerable time with both. I have witnessed on countless occasions the evidence of the joy and gratitude of those wounded and their friends and families as they share time together that otherwise would not be possible. Luke's Wings makes that possible. Where some organizations only transport immediate family, Luke's Wings brings friends together as well. Friends are a crucial part of the healing process. God bless this organization for their work in connecting these families and friends. The personal service and dedication of each of their employees is clearly a passion with each of them. Whenever anyone asks who they should donate their hard earned dollars to I always recommend Luke's Wings!

Review for Hidden Wounds Inc, Columbia, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have the utmost respect for former members of the military who see a need and take action. This is the type of organization that can best work with those who need assistance......veterans who are suffering from any of the aftermath of war issues. For those veterans who have 'been there and done that' their background is crucial. The fact that they took it upon themselves to commit to the well being of our veterans who are hurting is outstanding. Hopefully there will be more organizations that will pattern their work after Hidden Wounds.

Experience is the most beneficial means to treat 'hidden wounds' along with the professional staff where their combined efforts make a difference in the lives of our 'wounded'.

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

I personally met Steven Diaz when he was first wounded and treated at WRNNMC. I have not experienced their work first hand as I am not a veteran. I do know that one person, when committed and determined, can make a difference in his own life and the lives of countless others.

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

Do nothing but watch them grow and expand and inspire others to do the same.
