Wounded Warrior does some good stuff. They’ve also made some fairly recent anti-gun decisions though.
VFW-National Home for Children.
The Injured Marine Semper FI Fund, one of the top rated of all charities. Very low administrative costs, packed with caring volunteers. More of your contribution goes directly to helping the injured marines. I give to them each year.
Check out the following link. Has many to choose from.
Operation Homefront Texas helps military service members and also the families of deployed troops with things like cash for rent/electric, food, school supplies, etc. My wife is on the board of directors of O/H TX. They do a lot to help directly versus going through a large organization.
I wouldn’t give a penny to the WWP
They say no to guns because its controversial but throwing shindigs at the Playboy Mansion tell me that they are not friendly to my views and beliefs
Wounded Warrior is pretty good, and as others have mentioned the Fisher House.
one more that was not on the list: http://www.operationfirstresponse.org/
it provides financial aid for living expenses. rent, school, utilities, etc.
The Navy Relief Fund. They help out sailors and Marines with everyday problems.
He's a conservative and backs conservative causes. He travels frequently to entertain the troops both overseas and stateside with his LT Dan Band.
He teams up with groups that build housing for soldiers who lost limbs and eyesight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He seems to be one of the hollywood guys who GETS IT ! http://www.garysinisefoundation.org/
We give to Team Rubicon.... http://teamrubiconusa.org/
There are alot of people here who don’t like Wounded Warrior Project, but they helped out with my son. They got the VA off their ass, they helped us find ways to cope with the effects of my son’s brain injury, and helped him to feel some what normal again. I cant thank them enough for the help they have provided my family.
Not sure of their percent going to overhead but the USO lounges at the airports are a welcome oasis for troops and family. Our kids tell us they are always warmly welcomed and well treated.
As a brat, you may appreciate a faith based group
It gets ultra high reviews from the charity oversight community
I personally donate to them.
Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
I give to the USO.
Most military bases will have an office for assisting enlisted. Donate directly to the base. I went down the road of trying to find a private organization. Some are good but many are scams. Our group hired a bus and took them to a county fair’ then out for about more fun on the way back.
Many are away from home for the first time and pretty much stuck on base. The officer in charge came up with the idea. It was a good time by all
