You might want to check through USO...so you don't have to start from scratch
My big brother is a marine, I'm an army brat.
I totally understand. I grew up in a marine base and almost nobody gives back to them, anything you need help with, I'd be happy to help.
I'll totally help, I'll get my guard friends to help too!
Apparently NOT the westboro baptist church. They actually protest at soldiers funerals.
Just read your description. When my mother's son joined the army my mom created a yahoo chat group for all the mothers of fort benning stationed soldiers in training and such...She ended up getting over 1000 members and running it for a few years. He ended up getting asthma and getting discharge so my mom handed over the group to someone else, but I believe it is still running.
Wounded Warrior Project is also very good!
Uh, all sorts of organizations doing that already.
I think their families and friends should by taking them out if it. Biggest support you could give them, IMPO:(
Not me... sorry.
