Proudly serving Eastern Iowa veterans in need since 2015
Dan, a Navy Veteran from Waterloo was asked how has his involvement with AFIL benefitted him in terms of increasing his quality of life.
“That is an easy question, my involvement with AFIL has been better than I could have imagined because I am a stubborn guy and it’s hard for me to ask for help. But when I do ask for help, they do not make me feel bad. They make me feel like I am asking from a friend, not an organization.
When I got out of the hospital last year and requested some pants, they came back with not only pants, but cleaning supplies, rags, socks, food, and so much more. They made me feel like I was a human being and that I have a sense of worth. Something that I have not had for a majority of my lifetime and I am so grateful for that. Guys like me do not have a whole lot of sense of worth and how they’ve helped me, you cannot put a price tag on that, there’s just no words for it.”
