Family of Robert Barrett, Fall River

Family of Robert Barrett, Fall River

“When Robert died our whole world stopped. The Military Friends Foundation was there immediately to help us in so many ways including flying Robert’s uncle up to be with us. I can never ever say thank you enough to the Military Friends and especially the people who support these programs. You made our lives brighter during our darkest moment.” Carlene Barrett, Fall River, MA  Read More →

In July my Dad died, and I flew home from Afghanistan to arrange his funeral. Upon my return I realized that my disabled brother had nowhere to go. So after discussing my options with my chain of command, it was decided that staying home would be best for everyone. Unfortunately, I came home to a handful of bills, and after all of my Dads funeral expenses were taken care of, I had nothing left. I... [Read more]

I have never experienced a support network as strong and committed as the Military Friends.  I am amazed at how quickly MFF reacts to caring for our Soldiers…MFF jumps in with both feed to care for our military and their family. – MAJ Eric Dinoto, XO for the Massachsuetts National Guard’s 182nd Infantry Battalion  Read More →

I would like to thank you and Military Friends Foundation for helping us send off our men in the 1-182 in such style this past Sunday. Although it is always hard to say goodbye, knowing that we families know where to turn while our men are away takes a huge burden off of our shoulders. On a personal note, I wanted to thank you for having what my children call “photo bookmarks” available. My husband... [Read more]

While my husband was deployed, Military Friends was great when I needed help the most to repair our car to be able to transport our daughter and take care of business. I am eternally grateful and we were invited to their x-mas function and we enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for making us feel welcome and a part of something wonderful.

Military Friends Foundation is a wonderful organization. My husband is currently deployed in Afghanistan. Military Friends has helped me personally with the $200 grant that helped pay for our family’s car insurance. Most recently, Military Friends helped our unit support group mail holiday care packages to our soldiers. It is so important for our soldiers to get ‘a little piece of home’... [Read more]

I will tell my story on how much Military Friends have done for my family and I. My son was deployed in February 2010 to Afghanistan; his second tour and he didn’t go alone; his girlfriend for the past 7 years went to Afghanistan with the 379 Engineers out of Buzzards Bay, MA. All went okay until August 2, 2010 and a phone call came from my son saying “MOM I have to tell you something;... [Read more]

Your help with the postage fees to mail our Christmas packages for the 379th Engineering Co. was greatly appreciated. The soldiers need to know that they are thought of while they’re away from home. These soldiers also need to know that there is someone just a phone call away that their families can turn to for help while they are away. Thanks so much for everything you do.

My husband is currently deployed overseas. My son and I recently attended the Holiday Event at South Shore Plaza. We had alot of fun listening to great music, visiting with Santa and eating yummy snacks. My son loved receiving a Simon Gift Card to spend at the mall. I enjoyed talking with other families who have a loved one deployed. I met SGM Jim Kelly who told me about “Massachusetts Cares... [Read more]
