Veterans First!

It is time to take care of our own. One veteran at a time.
Roughly every 70 minutes a veteran commits suicide.
There are approximately 40,000 homeless veterans on any given night.
In the past year alone the number of diagnosed PTSD cases in the military jumped 50% (this is only reported and diagnosed cases).
According to the VA, up to 20% of Operation Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans, up to 10% of Gulf War veterans, and up to 30% of Vietnam veterans have PTSD.
Transitioning from military to civilian life is often overwhelming and stressful. Transferring military job skills, training and education is a common problem for veterans.
It is time to shine the light on the daily issues in our veteran community. It is time to put our veterans first.
We have been given a unique opportunity with this grassroots movement to effect true change.

Thanks @Bart Ell

This is one of the most efficient charities that I have ever supported. They post there financial statements publicly on their website. All the key principals are volunteers. They take no salary.  Most of the money goes directly to veterans, typically the same day it is raised via paypal donations.  They have raised and distributed over $600k since April alone if I remember correctly. Charlie Daniels had just started working with them to give them more exposure but he passed away. 

In addition to distributing funds they act as advocates contacting government agencies and officials directly trying to help veterans that are having trouble getting their rightful benefits. They have gotten a lot of veterans off the street and helped a bunch of others keep from getting evicted or losing their utilities.

I donate what ever I can. In fact, this is the only charity right now that I am making contributions to.   
Are we having fun yet?

Since I make private donations to DAV and Wounded Warriors, I receive requests from every group in the world. Good to know of another way to help our VETERANS.

Fists of hate are adorable. And this thread has nothing to do with ice hockey.
