Review for Homes For Our Troops, Inc., Taunton, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a supporter of this great organization for many years. The independence that they give severely disabled veterans by building accessible housing is life changing. I wish everyone could see the impact they have on our wounded heroes. I think one of my proudest moments was when I helped build a house for a friend of mine SPC Alex Knapp who lost both of his legs due to an IED. Unfortunately Alex passed two years after we gave him the home. Then the home was used to help another hero that lost both of his legs until they could build him a house. After that was done and he moved in the original home was vacant. I'm a disabled veteran myself but I didn't lose my leg in combat I made it through that with all of my limbs. After coming home I was hit by a drunk driver at 79 MPH on my Harley and lost my left leg above the knee. I was by Gods's good grace, eventually able to purchase the home from HFOT so they could use the money to help build another new home for another veteran. I can't begin to tell you what a difference an accessible home makes. Thank you HFOT and God Bless you all and your volunteers for helping these heroes. I also want to thank all of the corporations that have stepped up to help make these homes a reality by donating good and services as well as monetary donations. If you need a great place to make a donation this is a first class ALL AMERICAN HERO Charitable Organization.

Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

As someone that works with Veterans daily it's appalling the salaries the staff of this charity make. It started off with good intentions then as in many cases greed took over and it became a way to get rich off of the disabilities of Veterans. They even tried suing another organization because it had Wounded Warrior in it's name. By the way that charity actually helps Veterans without taking a cut for personal gains. When you look at a Veterans charity look at the salaries and that will tell you who's helping who.

Review for Veteran Tickets Foundation - Vet Tix, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been able to attend many different events I've been very appreciative and thankful to all of the wonderful donors and Vet Tix for allowing me to enjoy the events. This is a top notch no strings attached organization. I even started to make a monthly donation so other Veterans can go to even more events. This Marine gives Vet Tix a huge OOH-RAH and a Semper Fi thanks again for everything you do!
