Review for Legacies Alive, Washington, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a Gold Star mother more people seem to care about how mu son died rather than how he lived. I am sure that I am not the only Gold Star that feels this way. The wonderful men and women involved with Legacies Alive truly care about my sons life and ensuring his legacy is remembered. This is an incredible group of men and women caring about our fallen and the families left behind. I encourage everyone to follow them and learn what a Gold Star is and how to help us remember our heroes. It is not about how they died it is about how they lived that is the legacy.

Review for Operation Phantom Support, Killeen, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a part of this organization from it's inception the store in which OPS works out of is in honor of my son. I am so proud to be part of a group of people that genuinely care about others. Their main goal is to help military families in a time of need. The money a soldier or a veteran receives is limited and sometimes needs help stretching the funds. Being able to go to the food pantry or to the store to help their money make it all the way to the end of the month is awesome. It seems every time i am able to make it down to TX to see how things are going i find a new way they are including the community in their assistance programs. No one is sitting on their butts waiting for people to help them they are working in the community not only to get the word out but to tell others about their mission.

Review for Operation Phantom Support, Killeen, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is so close to my heart in so many ways. I have watched as a family comes into the store in Killeen with small children and are able to get a bike helmet for their son for free he was the happiest young man I think I have ever seen. Seeing a family come in and leave with food to eat for a week at no cost is an incredible thing to be a part of. As an aid brigade member I absolutely know where my money is going. With so many other organizations you may not see what they do with this one they are right out there on the front lines of assisting whenever they can. When the store first opened I watched John Valentine reach into his own pocket to give a mom 20.00 to buy a Christmas tree for her family because they didn't have one. He told her no child should go without a Christmas tree. I am so proud to be part of this amazing organization and believe my 10,00 is part of a change of times for the young men and women that pass through Ft. Hood.

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

Make sure there was a resale center near every military post in the USA.
