Thumbs up Help our Military

I know that there are tons of service members on this site some veterans and some serving now and some looking to serve our great country. So I thought you all would appreciate these websites.
I think they could use some of our support. Some are free to give others are not, but

THEY SCARIFICE THEIR LIVES EVERYDAY!! SO I THOUGHT WE COULD SACRIFICE SOME OF OUR MONEY, OUR TIME, OR ANYTHING TO HELP OUR AMERICAN HEROE'S!!!


http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/c...e_leftnav_logo

^^^This is a chance for you all to just make one click a day and feed our less fortunate American Veterans.

http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/

^^^This is not a free website for a click but this website is a great one to give money to or just to support.

http://www.operation-helmet.org/

^^^This one helps keep our military forces better protected and is a great idea IMO.

http://www.soldiersangels.org/

^^^This one was created by a mother who had two sons in the military and is a great cause, it keeps them comfortable and gives them aid.

http://www.uso.org/act-now.aspx

^^^This one is self explanatory they do anything and everything for our troops and I have personally gave time to them and they are awesome!

http://www.fisherhouse.org/

^^^This one is great not just for our military but for their famlies as well.

http://www.armedforcesfoundation.org/donations/

^^^This one helps retired, active duty, reservists, and their familes with an array of diffrent programs and needs for the military.

http://www.defendingfreedom.org/

^^^This one you can donate wahtever you would like and you can buy wristbands that say pray for our troops and other stuff. they are $3.00 (real cheap) and you can even send some to troops and everyone you send they donate the money to other charties that help the military.

http://www.dsusa.org/

^^^This one helps disabled military members to do their favorite sports and just have a good time doing what thet love.

http://www.marineparents.com/

^^^This one helps send care packages to Marines. Also if you or someone you know is a parent of a Marine this is a place where yall can connect!

http://www.childrenoffallensoldiersrelieffund.org/

^^^This one when the sound came on made me cry like nothing else and if it doesnt give you chills or make you want to help...I dont know about ya! This is one of the best ones. I cant imagine what these poor kids are going through!

MORE BELOW!!!!!

^^^Im not sure if any of you Veterans have PTSD (I Pray yo do not) But if you do or know some one who does thsi is just a place for them to talk to other vets instead of psychologists etc.

^^^This is a book you can send to the military and its just real encouraging for them to read about etc.

Wow great post!! I used a couple companies that provide care packages for my unit while we were deployed to Baghdad. They provide moral for troops and a little something from home that was not provided for us there. Thanks again

This is an absolutely wonderful thread, I work with active duty troops on a daily basis.

A problem I see most often is that when they are planning to leave the service, they have no job prospects.
I know that when I retired, finding a job just to pay the exsisting bills can very difficult.

In my case I was going back "Down Range" to find a decent paying job with private security companies .
Many soldiers think that they will be able to find work with Law Enforcement, but the truth is this type of work in most cases requires a degree of some sort.

One of the few Departments that seem to be hiring alot is the Border Patrol and the promotion potental is fairly rapid, capping out at GS-13 which is good pay.

If service members are retiring a problem I encountered was the age requirement which is 38 yrs or younger, and is the same in most cases for federal and many state/ local departments.

Several folks posting on here have mentioned many of the organizations to support families of the fallen or wounded, and they are outstanding. I can tell you first hand, during my last deployment my little brother deployed with me and he was KIA.

Many of the fore mentioned organizations jumped to support, not only my brothers wife and kids but also helped my family fly from Alaska to Indiana to attend the funeral.

The support was amazing, afew not mentioned were the Blue Star families and Patriot Guard Riders. The Patriot Guard stopped the Westboro Bapitist Church from attending and protesting my brothers service. This group alone saved yours trully, from a life sentence in prison for multiple homicide!

I know that with the ecomony the way it is, it can be difficult to donate money to the many support organizations. But there is a huge pay off for military personal just to be thanked and welcomed back home!
I had an older couple buy my meal in a restruant while I was returning home during "Mid Tour Leave" that really moved me!

However, there is also an uncool way to approach our returning Gunfighters. I was asked by several people after returning, how many I Killed. Some troops have a hard time dealing with their experiences and this approach doesn't help!

GOD BLESS AMERICA and Her Troops!
