I am an Outreach Coordinator for Veterans Stand Together (VST), a non-profit for veterans that assist in vocational training, soft skills development and job placement assistance. We were trying to source computers for our Veteran Resource Center. I was referred to Heroes Deserve Help and Mr. Miller by Mr. Boscamp at Coastline Community College, VRC. The computers that they provided have been utilized by our admin staff and our students completing certifications or looking for work, online. We are so thankful to have been introduced to Mr. Miller and Heroes Deserve Help. They are truly, a wonderful organization. Thank you!!

I have been volunteering with Patriots and Paws in marketing and donations for several years now after I saw Penny Lambright handling it by herself for the most part (she’d sometimes get volunteers). After being MIA for a couple of years to tend to my dad up North, I reconnected with her. She suggested that I inquire about getting a computer from Heroes Deserve Help. She sort of knew that I needed something to distract me from my family issues. I also had a brother that I served with pass last year. During these trying times in our country, Heroes Deserve Help can serve not only veterans transitioning with these computers, but bring purpose and focus. A computer is material but brings a lot of options to the table. Many veterans don’t consider ourselves heroes or want any help . . . but these computers are tools and given to us with the utmost respect for our service. Take advantage of these gifts and then later . . . pay it forward. Thanks for not forgetting the Vets. “Leave No Man or Woman Behind”

I was introduced to Heroes Deserve Help through Nat Miller and Tom Boscamp at Coastline College VRC in Fountain Valley, CA. I have been taking courses online through Coastline College since 2010 while service in the US Navy on Active Duty. After 9 years of service I moved back to Orange County, CA and the VRC offered great support and services during my transition back into the classroom. As a 2019 business graduate of Coastline College, the VRC has provided tremendous assistance and support in regards to veteran resources offered. I am a current student veteran working in the Veterans Resource Center part time while pursuing my undergraduate studies at California State University, Fullerton. Heroes Deserve Help provided me with a laptop at no cost during my transition to the university for this Fall 2019 semester. It relieved the pressure to go out and purchase a laptop. Their services and resources will help me complete my studies and have access to technology to work efficiently. Heroes Deserve Help also provided me with a computer monitor to use while at home for business studies. I am very much appreciative of their support and assistance and owe much of my success at Coastline College to the contribution of the VRC and Heroes Deserve Help organization. Thank you VRC , Tom Boscamp and HDH!!

Thank you to Tom with the VRC at Coastline and Heroes Deserve Help for completely changing the way I felt about returning to school. I was concerned about how I was going to be able to get my assignments done with a 10+ year old desktop but was relieved when learned that there was an organization looking out for vets in my exact situation. It was such an easy process and I’m the proud owner of a laptop! Now I’m confident and ready to finish this degree and move on to bigger and better goals. I will definitely be referring all of my friends to Heroes Deserve Help. Seriously, THANK YOU!


I am a Veteram Marine going through homelessness and transitional housing. I want to thank all of you who made this possible. I received a laptop and all of the necessary extras needed that has made my journey to returning to a productive life and searching for a job so much easier. The Vets at the Coastline Community College Vets Office and Heroes Deserve Help were extremely helpful and friendly. I could not be happier and now I can continue to search for a job online and complete some online courses. I cannot thank you enough and hope to be able to pay it forward to another vet. Thanks again and Semper Fi.

Tom has provided us with computers that are invaluable and the vets centers at CCC and OCC are amazing. Whata great resource.

Thank you to Chuck and Nate for providing me with a new laptop to help with my career! I’m a single mom to a young son who is in elementary school. Now I can help him with his homework and complete my online degree at the same time thanks to Heroes Deserve Help. We had no computer in our home for over five years because I couldn’t afford one on my fixed income. Thank you for helping me stay connected to my son!

I met with Miguel and Tom during my visit to their Veteran Resource Center and they were very welcoming and an extreme help. I was lucky enough to receive help when I needed it the most. Their generosity saved me hundreds of dollars at a time when I couldn’t afford another extra payment. If ever you’re in need of help I highly recommend stopping by to see them.

Alphonso Black

This Laptop came at the perfect time. Needed a new one and you guys delivered. Having the Microsoft Essentials is a plus. Thanks Again !!!

* Being a part-time student and part-time in the work force has made things a bit stressful for me. I am determined to stay at school and eventually becoming an RN (registered nurse). Time and money are tight. To help me keep up with the rest of the students, I was in need of a computer. Something I could study with at home as well as in the classroom. Unfortunately it wasn’t in my budget. I discovered the Veterans Resource Center at my school administration office. That is where I met Tom Boscamp and Christy. They were extremely pleasant, courteous and extremely helpful. Through the Veterans Resource Center they were able to present me with a laptop computer. I cannot thank them enough. People helping people in need is what it’s all about and that is what Tom and Christy are all about.

To whom it may concern I am very thankful for this computer…I am a veteran Marine who was in need of this machine so once again Thank you very much…

Mel Stuart

Having endured almost two years of hardship I have finally taken the huge step of seeking a helping hand up. Being a proud individual this was very difficult for me. But along this process I have come to discover that there are people willing to help veterans who are in the most need. Heroes Deserve Help and Tom Boscamp are definitely in this group. I was able to attain a laptop through their kindness and it has become another tool on my path to success. Tom made me feel unashamed about receiving such a gift and I have such great gratitude toward him and HDH. Thank you again for your support.

I came to know Heroes Deserve Help through a Police Officer who has helped me during my addiction recovery phase and homelessness. I have been clean for a year and am now currently in school. Heroes Deserve Help blessed with me with a computer that I am able to use to get me classwork done. I am excited to be able to use my computer on the go without always having to stop in the computer lab. I was also referred to another Veteran for better housing via contact made with Heroes Deserve Help. I just want to say thank you to this organization for giving back to our countries Veterans. I appreciate it, we all do. Thank you and God Bless, From John Simmons

John Simmons

I’m a returning student to Coastline Community College and I’ve been incredibly impressed by the resources made available to Veterans here. I’ve been out of the Corps for 20 years and I’m just now discovering that there are people and organizations out there dedicated to helping Veterans and the CCC VSO along with Heroesdeservehelp.org stand as two of the best groups of people I’ve had the fortune of knowing. Thank you so much for your generosity.

Fred Franco (USMC-Vet)

I am a veteran and full time student. I was in need of a laptop since I was staying after school to do my homework. I was assisted by Veteran Services and explained my situation. They were great! they were able to help me with a laptop and the opportunity to continue pursuing my education.

Charlie Lopez

I received a laptop from Tom Boscamp at Coastline College and couldn’t be happier! This will be extremely helpful as I am an Army Combat Veteran in the process of starting a nonprofit to help other combat wounded Veterans. I am very grateful and appreciative. Keep it up guys, you’re doing great work!!

Tom W

I was not expecting this generous gift at all. I told a fellow veteran about my laptop dying, and being short on funds I had to continuously use the Veteran Center computers at Vanguard University to do my homework. Then multiple individuals, took time out of their day to help me out, with the laptop. They coordinated with Tom at HeroesDeserveHelp.org. With in a few weeks I was gifted with this HP laptop / tablet with fully upgraded with all the programs I need. I am completely humbled by this wonderful gift. I just want to thank everyone who put this together to help me succeed. Many Thanks James P.

I stopped by the VRC at COASTLINE COMMUNITY COLLEGE and picked up a laptop today. It looks great. Thank you

Dante Antonio Caple

Was referred into the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) @ Coastline College per a fellow veteran / brother whom I served with for some resources for my cyber security classes at El Camino. I did not know nor expect to have been able to have gotten a lap top! This is going to make going to class so much easier considering that I am always looking for a way to bring a computer to school and obviously cannot take my desktop. Thanks VRC NB & Coastline – Semper Fi !!

Sherman Watson Jr

I just wanted to take a moment and share how thankful and appreciative I am for HEROES DESERVE HELP. Due to the generosity of this organization many vets including myself have been helped in multiple ways. I received a full desktop computer which will allow me to study and do my online school work without having to dip into my personal funds. This donation will truly help in my post-service success.

Joshua W Rottler

So many thanks are due to this organization. We went into the coastline office for some advice for my ex military Fiance to get through school easier, since this process is anything but easier for a man in his late 30’s, and we were given a printer for our home since his school semester was only two weeks away…. what a blessing this is. Thank you again for belong this military family get through yet another semester.

Jacque J

I am a Active Army veteran, now attending Coastline Community College. Since I have arrived to Coastline, the Veteran’s Resource Center has been extremely helpful and beneficial to my integration into school. I often spend my time at the Veteran’s Resource Center doing homework using their desktop computer, and printer. Today Tom, and the Veterans Resource Center continue to help me succeed in my studies and everyday life by presenting me with a donated Dell laptop and printer! I can not thank HEROES DESERVE HELP, Coastline Community College, and the Veteran’s Resource Center enough for the positive impact and influence the staff has made on me. Once again thank HEROES DESERVE HELP for your continued support.

Larry J. Ruiz

Thank you very much, receiving this printer is really going to help me succeed here at Coastline, and i am so grateful that I was giving this opportunity to be here. I have had nothing but the best help from the staff here at the Veterans Affairs here, and it is greatly appreciated.

Dina Tzegaegbe

I just wanted to thank you for what the organization does for vets. Since I recently transitioned out of the Navy the start up and shock of civilian life is hard hitting. Being able to borrow this laptop will greatly decrese costs for school. Thank you

Marq Martinez

Received a lap and have given many to veterans at the Veterans Resource Center at Coastline! This is real help to veterans and very appreciated. Regards – Miguel Vazquez Student Veteran & 1st District Rep OC Veterans Advisory Council

I’m reaching out hoping you can assist with this spouse of veteran in need. I received a call today from a spouse of a veteran that’s in need of support either getting the family computer fixed or getting another one. Unfortunately, the veteran passed away a couple months ago and now she’s a single mom of 3 boys and she’s looking into going back to school. We are trying to assist her in getting some of her basic needs met. Please let me know if you are able to assist.

MY I MAC was on it’s last leg/paw. Penny Lambright of Patriots and Paws, told me about you and it was two days later that I received a beautiful Dell surface Pro. Loading it up was easy. Thanks for what you do. Andy McTigue
