As a disabled veteran, I very much appreciate all the discounts and well wishes along with the national holiday to honor us veterans.
However, for the other 364 days… Not for the veteran, but for yourself, I encourage you to do one or both of the following…
- Donate to:
The Wounded Warrior Project
2. Actually visit a VA facility, and just say hello to a wounded veteran. Bring them a chocolate bar, a book, a video game, or just a heartfelt handshake.
Not only is it really appreciated by wounded veterans to have visitors, but in my experience, the visitors get more benefit than the veteran.
