I just wanted to take a moment to THANK all of the brave men and woman who have served our country. I believe no matter what political opinions we have we MUST continue to support those who serve us. This is a great country we live in and without those who have served who knows what our country would be like.
This morning on the news I heard some startling facts. According to the Nation Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients "Conservatively one out of five homeless men who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in cities and rural communities has put on a uniform and served this country...."
This statistic shocked me. But there are things we can do to help by supporting organizations out there that help veterans. A few of the organizations that are trying to help are:
The Veterans Administration Homeless Veterans Programs: 800-827-1000
Hire A Hero - 866-440-4424
Please take today to thank a veteran and pray for the safety of those who are surving us today and for those who have lost their life fighting for our freedom!
