IN HONOR OF OUR VETERANS THIS UP-COMING VETERANS DAY

                     
today's action Stand UNITED FOR VETERANS!

The country may be divided on many important issues, but the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) is starting a movement to rally the nation around something everyone should be able to agree on. The campaign, "UNITED FOR VETERANS," is a nationwide initiative to expose and subsequently help struggling veterans and military families get their VA benefits, transition into everyday civilian life and meet their urgent, everyday needs.

This Veterans Day, show your appreciation for the men and women who have protected our country by joining the VFW's movement to help give back to those who truly deserve our support.

Start a fundraising page on behalf of the VFW and our country’s defenders TODAY.

Most importantly, In Memory of my Grandfather who was drafted in the U.S.Army 2 months before WWI ended, and my late uncle who enlisted in the Navy and rose into the office ranks during WWII AND my late Father who served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, last but not least my brother-in-law who served as a Medic during the Vietnam War.

Yes, I remember growing up with God, Country and the Democratic Party, which was why I also enlisted and served in the Army Reserve from 1980-1992.
