"It is the duty and moral obligation of the citizen populace of a nation to assist, care for, admire and love their Military Veterans" 

Barry Donadio 2017


"Did you know that when I was a young boy, I met many Veterans of the First World War? It is hard to image that they are all gone now. What nice people they were and they always shared their experiences with you if you asked them to. I was so proud to have the opportunity to meet them. I always thanked them for their service to United States and I will never forget them. I sometimes have wondered if they were cared for the way Veterans are today. "

Thank a Veteran!

Did you ever wonder what you can do to help Veterans? The emotional impact on a Veteran when simply thanking them can be highly positive. Taking the time to ask them about their experiences is beneficial to the Veteran and the listener. If you have a Veteran in your family or know one, take a moment to express your appreciation for what they did for our nation. Don't wait for Veteran's Day to come once a year.


If you're a Veteran

No matter if you served in a war zone or somewhere in the United States during peace time, you are a Veteran and your service is highly appreciated. No matter what role you filled, it was your initial act to choose to serve our nation is what is vital.
