My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for My Warrior's Place, Inc., Ruskin, FL, USA
I have supported My Warrior's Place from the outset, after meeting Kelly Kowall and honoring her as a Gold Star Mother of a 82nd Airborne paratrooper who fell in Afghanistan. Our Tampa Bay Chapter of the 82nd ABN Association have made her a member. She has powerfully contributed to one of our annual projects to give a week of "R & R" to 2 active-duty paratroopers who have encountered combat trauma and lost comrades. She provides then with a fishing/sight-seeing boat trip in Tampa Bay and a kayak adventure in local streams. Very pleased that her "compound" is nearly complete and fully occupied at the moment
Review for Florida Chapter - 173rd Airborne Brigade Assn, New Port Rich, FL, USA
Have been a member for over 10 years. The organization's greatest benefit is the anual Reunion where vets of the 173rd come together, allowing re-connection with guys we served with. The Florida chapter has minimal meetings and administrative baggage, but a good annual picnic/meeting and other optional events, including care-packages for deployed troops, a beer & bullets outing, parade participation and contributing to an annual R& R in Florida for 2 active-duty troops.
