Veterans Day: Service Ideas

Dear Readers,
Happy Veterans Day to you and "thank you" to all readers who serve, have served, or have family members in the military.

In honor of Veterans Day, here are some service ideas for you to consider. The following organizations seek donations of funds and/or needed items and volunteers.

This organization (highly rated by offers military families temporary "comfort housing" where they can stay locally when loved one is being treated for injuries or illness.

The British Legion provides "practical care, advice, and support" to serving military members, veterans, and families.

Operation Homefront provides emergency financial assistance to military families.

This organization advocates for healthcare, employment, and other important social services and support for veterans and their families.

Homes for Our Troops assists severely injured/disabled veterans with necessary structural and other adaptations for their homes in order to support comfortable, accessible, and independent living.

These are just a few ideas to get you started thinking about service options in your local, national, or worldwide community as you remember veterans and current military service-people.
