Review for Operation Second Chance Inc, Germantown, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was deployed to Iraq from 2006-2007 and accrued injuries that made me medically unfit for the Army. I was transferred to a Warrior Transition Battalion and medically retired in April of 2013. Even though I had extensive training through the Army and College I was unsuccessful for over 7 months to acquire employment. The compensation I receive from the VA is less than half of what I have made on active duty and I scrambled to pay bills. My daughter and myself lived paycheck to paycheck and I had to go to local charities and Veterans Organizations to get food, clothes and necessary items to survive.
In October of 2013 all my resources were exhausted and I was on the verge of loosing my Car. Operation Second Chance was contacted through my AW2 rep 4 days before my Car was going to be repossessed. Operation Second Chance immediately paid my outstanding bill and I was able to keep my Car. If it wasn't for Operation Second Chance, I would have lost my Car and my means of transportation.
I am so grateful that this Organization is there to help Veterans like me. We need more Organizations like them and I believe they are Angels sent from heaven.

THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!
