    I Raised Over $10,000 For War Vetrans In Qld

    I was fundraising in 2000 for war veterans ... and that is not a lot of money to raise compared to in the 80's many girls had big sponsorship of large companies to raise money ... back then they could raise $60,000- $120,000... easily... back in the 80's companies could write off...

    It just makes me sick thinking about how

    Veterans are homeless. They go out and risk their lives fighting for our freedom, In my opinion the Veterans shouldn't have to pay for a place of living, I feel so bad thinking about Veterans that come home from battle and have no place to live, it's just wrong.

    Medals To Cardboard Signs

    I'm not a veteran, I'm not even american but the concept is atrocious.In my country we're poor, almost the poorest in the world but we can still find a place for someone in our homes.With all that money hovering in the first world power they can't even afford to give people...

    Homeless Veterans Are a National Tragedy

    My father is a Vietnam Veteran. As a teenager he was witnessing things too horrible for me to even imagine. His years spent fighting that war are not often spoke of. As a teen, I didn't understand my father. I loved him but was often hurt by his quick temper, and seemingly...

    Not long ago, I read in a newspaper

    that a veteran was having to sell his medals that he earned in WW2 to pay his rent/bills.. Makes me so angry!

    The men and women in/out of our military deserve

    so much more than what they are getting. I don't believe the amount of veterans that are out on the streets having to rely on strangers for enough money to make it through the day. It's plain wrong and it shouldn't happen. Nobody has done more for this country then our service...

    Veterans

    At some point every solider wrote a check to their country, this cheque could be cashed at any time. Day or night, whether they had left families behind, or their family was the military. This check was for anything, their sanity, their limbs, their memories, nights of restful...
