As a veteran I am always sympathetic to the plight of my less fortunate brothers and sisters. I have been receiving phone calls and mail from National Veterans Services Fund, asking for money. A look at Charity Navigator rates them as a total scam, keeping for themselves all the money they raise.
Has anyone here had any experience with these people, good or bad?
The Better Business Bureau has them red flagged.
Check out the Silver Star Families of America. Born right here on FR. Mission is to remember, honor and assist the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces from all wars.
97 cents of every dollar goes where you want it to go.
Vietnam Veterans of America is a communist front group that pushes the most extreme anti-American causes. Of course it doesn’t require members be a vet. It is all about America-hatred. Luckily, their cover was blown long ago. John Kerry was an early and current member.
If you’re looking for an outstanding veterans charity, I recommend the Fisher House Foundation. The organization has built hundreds of facilities near military hospitals, allowing family members to remain near wounded warriors during their treatment. Very little overhead, and they deliver impressive results.
