From the Director’s Desk
Many of this country’s bravest men and women are coming home from duty without any support – from their government or from their communities.
While Washington plays politics and points fingers over new scandals that emerge every day, they forget about the servicemen who’ve earned the support of the government’s resources. So far we’ve only heard empty promises, and we certainly haven’t seen real action to address the problems facing veterans. But even to reform and rebuild the VA would be useless for many veterans, who would be required to accept one-size-fits-all solutions to their individual and unique problems.
You and I know that veterans deserve better.
ortunately, the Veterans Resource Network is determined to give those returning from the frontlines real solutions to real problems through a unique, market-based system. By bringing together different organizations and companies into an organized group, veterans are for the first time able to access a menu of resources catered to their varied needs – for themselves and for their families.
Veterans don’t need handouts. They’re not helpless and they’re certainly not needy. But it is our obligation to provide special access to excellent services commensurate with their unique sacrifices.
What will you do to help a solider today?
Providing a contribution of $25, $50, or $100 helps us allocate money to veterans groups around the country – private causes focused on servicing veterans on a personal level. It helps us reach isolated legislators in Washington, to help tell real stories about real men and women whose struggles at home are too often forgotten.
Public outcry against the inept bureaucracy governing the Department of Veterans Affairs brought some of these issues to light for a time, but outrage does not empower veterans. Your action does. A contribution of $25, $50, or $100 helps us serve those who have served their country.
Show a veteran that you appreciate their sacrifice and their duty. Tell them you know they deserve real options. Real treatments. Real financial assistance. Real jobs skills training.
