I cannot begin to express my gratitude, knowing throughout the college admission process was no longer on our family. I am forever thankful for all the incredible things SOWF does for military personnel and their families. I am proud to be attending my dream school, the University of Chicago, because of all the foundation does to honor those who have given their lives.

Without the assistance of SOWF’s scholarship program, I would not have been able to attend my dream school. The SOWF really comes through for families when they need help the most.”

This organization made a promise to see me through graduation, to assist me along the way to earning my degree. You have kept that promise. You stuck with me the whole way. For this, I am truly blessed to be part of the SOWF family.”

They have always made sure I got what I needed for my living expenses as well as my semester expenses. They not only have given me financial stability when I needed it the most, but also moral and emotional support. If it wasn’t for SOWF I wouldn’t be the professional teacher that I am today. For every success that I made and continue to make in my life, SOWF will be there at the top of the list for all of the thanks and recognition that they deserve for helping me carve my future.
