Thanks and Giving

Thanksgiving is a good time to think about people who can’t be with their families and friends on this holiday because of the sacrifices they’re making or have already made to serve our country in the military.  Don’t forget to say thanks to those who’ve served.  Here are a few links to good organizations if you’re interested in donating. 

National Veterans Legal Services Program — This organization is run by my father-in-law, so I’m partial.  They have a great program called Lawyers Serving Warriors to provide free legal representation in disability, discharge and veterans benefits cases to service members and veterans who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) or Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF).

Also, all of the following organizations get four stars, the highest rating, from Charity Navigator:

Fisher House Foundation

Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust

Army Emergency Relief

Operation Homefront

National Military Family Association

Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society

Air Force Enlisted Village

Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

Special Operations Warrior Foundation
