"Thank You, Veterans!"






There are few greater sacrifices one could make than to leave his/her family, go off to a strange country, and make it their mission to keep those of us who live at home safe.

Two simple words mean a lot to folks who deserve to hear them. So, not only on November 11th, but any day you happen to pass one of our military members, please don’t forget to say those two words. The words, “thank you.”






If you would like information on organizations that help our military service personnel, I've noted a few websites.


Disabled American Veterans

http://www.dav.org/

Paralyzed Veterans of America


http://www.pva.org/

Wounded Warrior Project


The Veterans Site


USO (United Service Organization)

http://www.uso.org/





If you have a Veterans' organization that you'd like to add to this list, please feel free to note in the comment section. If you have a story to tell about your special Veteran, please share. We'd love to hear it.


Have a great week, Everyone!

  3. It's sad how many homeless vets there are...and that we take care of other countries before we take care of them. They should be our government's top priority! Beautiful post.

  4. Oh! Could you please add my favorite charity, Heroes and Horses? Here's the link: http://www.heroesandhorses.com/ They are a wonderful organization, helping vets with PTSD and giving horses plenty of jobs. Win-win.

  5. Thank you for a wonderful post. Not only do we owe our thanks to the Veterans out there -- who sacrifice SO much -- but the families left behind... A BIG thank you to all.

    1. I agree,..families sacrifice, too. If you check out The Veterans Site and their Facebook page, you'll see many heartwarming videos of our Vets returning home to their families. Thanks, gds, for visiting.
