A deep heartfelt "Thank You" to all of our service men and women out there.
You'll see a lot of #HappyVeteransDay hashtags and meaningful messages on social media today. But when words don't seem like enough, I have three great ways for you to give back this Veterans Day. Each one just takes a few clicks of the mouse.
The Wounded Warrior Project provides rehabilitation, activities and career counseling for our nation's wounded warriors and their families. There are several ways to support this organization. Donations are accepted on their website. You can also send letters to an injured service member, make a donation in honor of a loved one or host a Supporter Event.
Active duty soldiers love notes and letters they receive from citizens, and many would love to write back home. Adopt a US Soldier is a nonprofit that connects supportive civilians with deployed troops. The organization offers a channel to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those serving our nation by sending weekly letters or postcards.
Homes for Our Troops uses volunteers to build homes or adapt existing homes to meet the needs of injured veterans. Rebuilding these homes into specially adapted locations for severely injured veterans helps these heroes rebuild their lives.
