Review for Bunkers in Baghdad, Buffalo, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a retired veteran, with multiple tours in Iraq. I am currently deploying at Kandahar, Afghanistan on my second tour as a Department of the Army (DA) Civilian supporting our troops. In previous tours we always seem to find golf equipment that were there before we got there. I know some generous organization have donated them for our troops. Unfortunately, this time around our previous predecessors did not have any golf equipment. So I google organizations online that would support our troops. I must have submitted the same request to ten different organizations, but only one answer the call with the equipment to support the troops, "BUNKERSINBAGHDAD".

I send the same request to Nike, Callaway, Titleist, Bridgestone, Taylor Made, and even the Golf Channel. Callaway responded back that I need a memo sign by the commanding officer. I responded back, "Thanks, but no thanks." You need to learn from Joseph M. Hanna on how to support the troops. It should come from the heart, not trying to justify how you spent your money. Shame on you.

So, I hope "BunkersinBaghdad" wins the 2014 Top-Rated Award. If any organization deserving such an award, it would be most definitely, "BunkersinBaghdad". Joe Hanna's organization does not need a sign memo from anyone. They just need a simple email request from the troops.

Joe, thank you for all that you do in supporting the troops. You brought golf to the troops, when the troops can't go to the golf course.

Thank you again
