Support Our Heroes This Veterans Day …
With Veterans Day coming up on Nov. 11, it’s a great time to help honor and thank our nation’s heroes for their service and sacrifice to the country.
Our Veterans need our help and support. They are disproportionately represented among the homeless population, and many of them return from serving in Iraq and Afghanistan with lasting physical and emotional wounds.
