The United States Census Bureau has created a list of stats about the state of veterans in 2015. It's interesting to note things like how many female veterans there are and how that number has changed. It's hard to swallow some of the numbers about disabilities and income level. But all the more reason to get involved and find a way to help out our nation's heroes!
Some ways you can help:
- Donate old clothing to the Paralyzed Veterans of America Foundation. It's tax deductible, helps you get organized, and they'll pick up the bags of clothing from your house! What could be simpler?
- Give through the US Veteran's Affairs Department- money will go to VA medical centers and hospitals. You can also use the same link to donate your time by volunteering at a VA medical facility in your area.
Support our nation's veterans and have a happy Veteran's Day!
