Many of you supporters out there make your donations to
certain organizations and help deployed and wounded warriors more than ever
could be conceived 20 years ago. For that I want to say Thank you from all of
us that have received your support.  As
you know I support AnySoldier.com. Why? Its  simple, because they give a shit about your
warriors. I was deployed, asked for support for my Marines and got it when it
really made a difference as we sat in the mountains of Tarin Kowt Afghanistan
in a make shift out post. There was no request of us to promote the site. The
site was promoted because it worked. It’s really very simple. AnySoldier crew isn’t
in it for big sponsors or big pay checks no, they barley are “making it”
especially during these times in our country.  

 

Thus, it is interesting to see the below story and how
things are manipulating some organizations original goal or focus. One can let
politics influence their directions when one gets to be an influential
organization. The trick is to remember why you decided to do their  organization in the first place and the true
meaning behind it without the distortion that can come when organizations get
bigger and people use them to influence politics.  

Some
are saying that this is an avenue some companies like this are taking to
support legislation that denies Veterans the right to keep arms, after they
return, if they are injured with PTSD.

I do find it interesting that the WWP has stated that they would be glad to continue to recieve their annual donations from the many gun & hunting organizations but will not allow them to utilize or promote the WWP because they dont want to be associated with guns or knives.

Read the below and make your own decision. You all are
smart people. The Wounded Warrior Project has done many great things in the
past. It would be unfortunate if they let others influence their business plan
to excel in what they foresee as greater gains.

  1. Sad to see what is happening to WWP, they made their choice and they will have to live with it. I hope that the Wounded Warriors will find support some other way. As to the Anysoldier.com, AnyMarine.com etc., they are probably the most personal way one is able to give support to our awesome Warriors. I am not familiar with their “income” structure, but I assume, you would not be involved with them if they were nor effective and reputable. God bless you Maj. B. for your service. Merry Christmas and PEACE in New Year 2013. Semper Gratus (Always Grateful)
    Gratitude is attitude, and attitude is everything!

  2. Too bad they do not give as much to the actual wounded-i’ve given to them before, although not all the time. Guess i’ll stick with fisherhouse.org, they are awesome 😀

  3. I have just added AnySoldier to my list, which includes Armed Services YMCA, Fallen Heroes Fund, Fisher House Foundation, Homes for our Troops, Marine Semper Fi Fund, National Military Family Association. All of these are posted on my blog, I pick
    these because most of the money goes to the Vets and not to the org. for operating
    expenses. Not to long ago my wife and I were coming out of Sams Club and there
    was a Veterans group outside doing a fund raiser and I droped in 5 bucks in there little box and walk way.
    By the time we got to the car, I told my wife that I shouldn’t
    have done that. When I got home I did a search on that org. and sure enough they
    kept about 65% for operating expenses. I should have known better, another clue,
    was one of the guys collecting money was wearing a hat that said Vietnam Vet
    thinking back I thought, that guy didn’t look old enough to have been in Nam.
