Has anyone here had any experience with these people, good or bad?
No I haven't, but if they're listed as a scam I'd believe it.
Actually, I question the validity of all the "non-profit" organizations that help vets. What is it that they provide that the VA doesn't?
More to the point - why does the CEO of the Wounded Warrior Project make $350K a year?
Why do the Vietnam Veterans of America still exist - and why have they NEVER required time served in Vietnam for membership?
Quite frankly, I think they all exist just to benefit themselves ... and essentially use the vets to do that.

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.
