"Brian and I just wanted thank 3/8 OIF & OEF Veterans for going above and beyond in helping us with everything he has done for us! As most of you know probably from personal experience, Marines are very proud, stubborn people....So when Bart Skiba and Ian Boliver [3/8 OIF & OEF Veterans] reached out to us offering to help Brian was hesitant. It has been overwhelming to see how much support we have received over the last few weeks and we truly couldn't be more grateful! With all of the bad that goes on in the world, seeing everyone's love, generosity and support has been such a beautiful thing! It truly has made this uphill battle a little more bearable knowing all of you have our backs! So a HUGE thank you to everyone who supported, and to Bart and Ian for helping us along the way!

"I would like to extend a huge thank you to 3/8 OIF&OEF Veterans for helping me through a very difficult time recently and ensuring I had everything in order. They made sure all the means to complete my mission to get to from Florida to Ohio and back were available to me and contributed towards the cost of the trip by picking up the difference of what I was unable to come up with myself... And they did so without me even having to ask. Bart Skiba, the President of the charity whom I've known for many years and served with, reached out to me after seeing a post on social media and told me not to worry that they would help me make it happen. And that's exactly what they did. It’s still about the brotherhood and having each other’s backs to this day... This is what they do and I know of several others whom they have been able to help as well. S/F." - Sgt Joseph Zigler, 3/8 Lima Company
