“I’m excited to be a part of the TUFF Foundation because we believe that together we can make a difference and bring awareness to some of the things we take most for granted like our freedom and those who protect it. Its our little way to give back and show appreciation to the ones who serve and have served and may suffer from the effects. As a Veteran of the Gulf War its important to me to see that my fellow veterans are taken care of when they come home.”

Greg Holcombe

“I  am proud to see this foundation grow with such enthusiasm. It reminds me why this country is so great. The true character of liberty is independence, and must be maintained by force. If you want to enjoy the comfort of your freedom and justice you must undergo the fatigue of supporting those who defend it . This is my way to say thank you and to give back to all the Men and Women who serve”

Phyllis Stegen

“The TUFF Foundation creates a format to say thank you to our veterans, active military and first responders. We all have responsibilities when it comes to procuring this great country that we live in, and part of that responsibility is to make sure that the individuals who protect and serve are also protected and served in a grateful and appreciative manner.”

Brian Gremminger

“I can think of very few causes that are more worthwhile, and yet more overlooked than remembering and honoring those who have fought to protect our freedoms.  My hope is to contribute to an organization that will impact the lives of veterans in a positive way, and that will call attention to the needs of veterans that many good-willed individuals could easily meet.”

Dan DeWitt

“I am part of TUFF because I want to give back to the vets.  I am a left leg amputee by a motorcycle accident.  I know the pain that these vets come home with and I want to do all I can”
