Hello and Thank You....Military Warriors Support Foundation has changed The Duety Family for life. Before we heard about MWSF we were living in one trashy neighborhood and house after another barely getting by with the bills and the rent. We were unable to correct our credit score to be able to even get a loan for a car much less our own home. Thanks to MWSF we have brought our credit score up, learned how to better our finances, and also learned how to budget our money a lot better.
The Program is helpful and gives the Current Military as well as retired Military the ability to own there own home where most would be unable to.
I hope that MWSF can continue to give peace and assurance to other Military Families for a long time to come. We have given advice to friends of ours that are both current and retired Military about this program in hopes that they to can succeed with there life long goals and dreams.
I am so pleased with the experience that myself and Wife have received with MWSF and how much information that the Budget Counselor has given us and advice that she provides us. She truly wants us to succeed in life.

We can't thank MWSF enough. Just a week ago we received a phone call from Savanah, awarding us with a mortgage free home! My husband, Ben served 10 years in the Air Force. Unfortunately Ben was injured while deployed to Iraq and was medically retired just last month. While we prepare for this major transition in our life's, Savanah couldn't have called at a better time. We can now breath knowing our family has a home to go to while we navigate our new "normal". This organization has been a blessing to my family and we can't wait to get settled into our new home so Ben can begin his road to recovery, stress free. Thank you MWSF!! We are forever grateful!

The wounded Warrior foundation here in San Antonio has been nothing short of a life saver for me. I retired in 2013 as Chief Warrant Officer 3 with a Masters degree and couldn't find a job. I reached out to the Wounded Warrior foundation and was assigned a job search assistant (Linda Cubera), and she was absolutely amazing. She gave me great tips on what jobs to pursue and how to tailor my resume. She also provided simulated mock interviews and was brutally honest. I truly needed that! She would also put me in contact with local businesses looking for people with my skill set, and she would periodically check up on me to see how I was doing in my job search, and after I started working she would still check up on me to see how things were going.

As a 22 year veteran I truly appreciate the effort of this organization that helped me get to where I am today. Linda Cubera is an asset to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.

My family and I thanks the Military Warriors Support Foundation for awarding us with something we have strived for a long time. Owning our own home means the world to us. We have been renting a home for the past few years that has a very bad termite problem and needed renovations. We dreamed of having a home were we could raise our children to be the best that they can be. We were astounded of how the process of applying was extremely easy and fast. We applied and turned in all of the documents we needed and in about two and a half weeks later we were told that we were awarded the house. Dealing with our case manager was a very pleasing experience. Ms. Savannah was extremely polite, helpful, and answered all questions we had. This organization is wonderful and I hope they continue to change lives for the better like they have done for us.

MWSF has blessed my son and I with a wonderful home. Thank you for such a generous opportunity. This was totally unexpected and a memory that will last forever. My son and I are looking forward to our new start on life and making this house our home.

On March 1st 2017,after many prayers...the best news came from our case manager~the best out there Ms. Savannah‚̧. We were homeless,we were struggling and after 1 1/2 year from our application date MWSF came as a blessing upon blessings straight from God. Now we finally got to know that feeling that we imagined when we've seen someone wining the lottery on tv.It's like a dream and even if we are a month away from moving and making contact with our new home..it still hasn't sinked in.
The apartment we live in is our 5th address in last 6 years.Our two children are born in diferent states and every military personnel knows the feeling...But now we finally can think of a new beginning.With less struggle and more hope.My husband served America, fought for this flag and signed his life away for freedom.He was in the worst situation and the most attaked outpost COP Margah was his home for a year.I remember sending him packages with wipes (his shower at times), tabasco ( to make the MRE's taste better) and medication for his blistering feet and warm socks.. to go in missions where he lost brothers..allways will be remembered Manuel Vasquez and Danie Quintana( Se the clip of the attack actual footage from the explosion that was covered by BBC as well)...I know my husband heart and ours will allways bleed for these men that never returned to their loved ones. My husband witnessed their tears, their struggles and their hard work only to see them gone from this life and lost in eternity,just courageous men/women that sacrificed it all for this country. My husband served America and his ARCOM of Valor is pride to me..but to him it's just a piece of metal, a vivid memory of death.Death that he escaped..and hints of anger and sorrow for his brothers whom death trapped in its snare...What my husband has lost, can never be replaced.All the hours that were spent away from him, will never come back.But what HOPE is happening through MWFS and its sponsors,and its donors ! Hope that America hasn't forgotten her heroes and men and women of Valor. So Thank you everyone for a new beginning! Thank you from the deeps of our hearts! The Garcia Family.

I couldn't be happier and grateful MWSF is real. When I heard about it I didn't believe it. Two of my fellow Marines received homes and I still thought it was a scam. It's not. I just finished the program and am now a home owner. My life has be turned around and I am on my way of being successful. I can not thank MWSF enough.

This foundation was brought to our attention back in August of 2016. We have applied for a home and are currently waiting to hear something. My husband suffers from multiple disabilities from his service to our country and I am a 2 year Breast Cancer Survivor still under treatment and now facing yet another scare with breast cancer... My husband is having another surgery this month.... We were given 6 weeks notice to move in August from our former residence due to it was going to be sold..... We were unaware of this program, but it is an awesome program that benefits so many. So happy to see programs like this out there that supports our Military~ When my husband was in Iraq and gone for 18 months there was something that I wrote on every single letter and package that I sent to him and other soldiers and it holds true today..... Friends, Family, Freedom........ Have you thanked a soldier lately...... Thank you for all that you do!

We got a phone call today that we were selected for a home. Could not be happier. My son now has a room of his own and a yard to play in. Our family is so grateful. Thank you MWSF. You have no idea how much this has impacted our lives. My 7 yr old son cannot contain himself! My fiance' cried when we got the call.
