Hey, Veterans Day is Monday, and there are some good orgs who really have their boots on the ground.
Okay, a while back, my wife (then fiance) asked me why I only did my normal level of support for veterans and military families on Memorial Day. My blurt was that "for me, every day's Memorial Day." And I feel the same way about Veterans Day.
Here are ten veterans orgs that you should be following on Twitter. They have important things to say, and are working hard for military families and veterans' rights. The list is in no particular order.
Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of American, @IAVA
Swords to Plowshares, @vetshelpingvets
Bob Woodruff Foundation, @Stand4Heroes
Blue Star Families, @BlueStarFamily
National Military Family Association, @military_family
Returning Veterans Project, @ReturnVeterans
The SF Veteran Success Center, @SF_VSC
Operation Homefront, @Op_Homefront
Warrior Canine Connection, @WarriorCanineCn
Luke's Wings, @LukesWingsUSA
I figure that we should support and thank Americans who risk taking a bullet to protect us, and that means also looking after their families. Just seems right… Happy Veterans Day, folks.
