This is an awesome organization! I am a wounded veteran, involved in another organization that takes wounded veterans out fishing. One of the guys I fish with told me out this organization, who gave him a house. I went to the website he told me to go to. I filled out an application for a mortgage free home, and I was awarded one! I can not express what this has done for me. I went from living with my parents because I could not afford to buy a house, to being in my own home! Now I am on my way to being debt free and starting fresh in a new house!

There are not enough words to express how grateful I am to MWSF for everything they have done for me and my family. MWSF awarded a 100% mortage free home to my fiance who is a retired Marine Corps wounded hero that served in Iraq. Not only did they award us a home, they helped us with every detail every step of the way. They have helped my fiance and I build a strong foundation for our future life together and we can not be more grateful. Most recently they even flew us out to a New York Jets game where we were presented our home on the field during the game! The things MWSF does for our veterans are so truly amazing.

What a great cause . . . supporting our combat-wounded warriors! I've had the good fortune to meet several of the recipient families. What great people and what a fitting tribute to have them receive a mortgage-free home. The outdoor trips, hunting and fishing adventures could never happen for many of these brave, wounded warriors without the help of the Military Warriors Support Foundation. Great work! Keep it up!

We have only just begun working with this foundation! We applied for the mortgage free home, and are now waiting on a decision. They have been wonderful and caring. We do not know yet if we will be awarded, but were already reassured that if we do not get this house, we will continue to stay on the list and they will continue to stay in contact with us through other applications. What a wonderful place to offer such! =)

I began volunteering with MWSF about 7 years ago. The staff has been top notch and the heros I have met have been inspirational.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

I was wounded in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2007. I continued being active duty Army and then I was stationed in Fort Carson, CO in 2009. I was still experiencing symptoms from when I was injured in Iraq and my doctors in Colorado started running tests. I was found to be non-deployable and subsequently started the med-board process out of the Army. I have a wife and 2 children so we decided to move back to our home state of Oklahoma. We were renting a home but it was almost a 2 hour drive for both my wife and I for school so we started looking in the Oklahoma City area and discovered that this organization had a home they were going to award a wounded veteran just a short drive from the city. So we applied and were granted the home. Military Warriors Support Foundation *(MWSF) has been a huge blessing to my family and I. We are now on our way to reducing our debt, living in a dream home and have cut that 2 hour drive down to 35-40 minutes in morning traffic. We appreciate everything that MWSF has done for us and are grateful for our home and the opportunity to become a more financially stable family.

How did you find this group?

Heard about it through a military resource office at Fort Carson, Colorado

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

To reduce our debt, they want to help make us a more financially stable family and they have contributed greatly to that goal by awarding us with a mortgage-free home.

We are fortunate enough to have recently been awarded a mortgage free home. We can not begin to express how humbling it has been for us to receive such an honour. It couldn't have come at a better time. We thank the organization for their hospitality during our stay in Dallas.

At first after I heard I can be awarded a 100% mortgage free home. I thought it was to good to be true at first. I filed out the application despite what I thought. Sure enough I was awarded a home a little while later. I was shocked and to this day I am still in shock. It is such a blessing. I had been homeless twice since my service and have been struggling to make it. Military Warriors have helped give me a life I never thought I could have. That and I don't ever have to worry about not having a place to call home again. They keep me involved and whenever I have a problem they do what they can to help me. They have recreational activities to help keep me involved and give me a chance to hang out with veterans like me. Thank you so much Military Warriors for all you have done and continue to do for me!! You guys are truly amazing!!
