It’s Christmas time, and there are a lot of people feeling the financial pain this holiday season, so take a few of those cans of food you’ve been storing and donate them to your local food bank or homeless shelter. They’ll be glad to have it, and you’ll be glad you gave it. You’ve got your gifts for your family, but what aboutt your other family? That’s right, the family of man.
If you have a spare buck or two, give to the charity of your choice; there are people in trouble out there and they need your Christian charity, or your Buddhist charity, or whatever. We’ve become monthly donors to the wounded warrior project, and what a great way to tell the brave men and women of our armed services that you care about the sacrifices they’ve made. Go to wounded warrior project.org. for more information. But it doesn’t have to be that, there’s gotta be an organization or group that does good that you believe in. Send them a few bucks to help them continue to help others.
Doc Bones and Nurse Amy,
I wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support to the Wounded Warrior Program. I just recently left a wounded warrior transition unit after being hurt in Afghanistan and the support the WWP provides through your donations often brings a tear to soliders eyes. I will be back up and running but those that wont be will need all your collective help.
Again, thank you for all your doing on here as well as for the WWP.
PS: Once i return home for good I will get that disk I promised you out to you. I havent forgotten.
Thank you much! The small thing we do can have a great impact. Thank you for the suggestion.

Thanks for the reminder, I've always given to toys for tots but wounded warior has been added to my list this year. They have given so much, it is the least I could do.
DAMMIT IM MAD spelled backwards is DAMMIT IM MAD
Excuse me.... but I was under the impression that if a veteran has ANY service connected injury, he/she is on the federal payroll until full recovery or life... whichever comes first. At least that's the way it was when I enlisted in 1966 and my sons in the 90's.
Of course... with 45 percent of Afghanistan/Iraq vets claiming disabling injuries, the old federal money pot probably is running low.
Maybe ALL AMERICANS need to start standing on their own two feet and stop looking for a handout.
You know times are bad in America when GW Bush's presidency starts looking good..
It's my understanding that the waiting list for services is quite long. In any case people are certainly free to contribute to whatever charitable cause they darn well wish.
THINK......It's not illegal yet.
I Am Responsible For What I Say. I Am Not Responsible For What You Understand.
Wyo - while your statement may be unpopular, it is true - I am a GWOT service connected disabled vet and I did not have to wait long to get established in the system - there are of course horror stories out there and there always will be - The media will not want to report how fast I was taken care of, only those who are not- However I hope you don't think that by me getting the VA benefits I recieve, I am looking for a "Handout." We are not talking about SSI - this is medical care and a relatively small monthly payments for those who sacrificed and served for you - yes, i volunteered as did everyone else but if we have a VA and a Govt that ignores vets and an ungrateful population, there may cease to be ample and able bodied volunteers to defend your way of life - thats when they come knocking on your door with draft papers - If I am misunderstanding your last statement please clarify
