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!

Long live anysoldier.com

They are pure in a world full of corruption.

Thanks guys and you are correct. If there is somthing bogus I would call it out. I owe that to my Marines. Here is some good facts about where the money goes within AnySoldier:

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 :D

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.
