Review for Operation Support our Troops America, Naperville, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I came back from Afghanistan in 2010 I was thinking of becoming just a stat and taking my own life. I carried a lot of guilt for living and more for coming home basically in one piece.
Through some friends who are involved with OSTA, I was able to find my way out of that deep dark hole that so many veterans find themselves in. I started giving back through OSTA and the acceptance that I found was unbelievable. I still have issues but I know that there are people, great people, who I have meet through OSTA that are there to help not only myself but many veterans. Some of the programs are beyond words. Be it helping the families of the fallen, putting on fundraising concerts, to direct assistance through the Allen J. Lynch program... this organization does it all. I am alive and moving forward in part because of OSTA and I am proud to continue serving our fellow veterans through the programs of OSTA.
