Transitioning from a military to a civilian lifestyle can be challenging. To aid in this process, there are countless veterans’ charity groups in place. And a great way to thank a veteran is to give to one or more of these charities.
These organizations perform a variety of services such as serving meals, re-acclimating veterans to the civilian workforce, providing access to health care facilities, educational opportunities, psychological counseling, and much more. And they need your help.
US Army Veteran, Welton Chang, in speaking with Task & Purpose, says that his preferred method of being thanked for his service is “By moving beyond bumper-sticker support for veterans. Help us help each other by doing three things: get in involved with veterans’ organizations, get politically involved, and vote.”
These organizations are often the only bridge former military members have to successfully cross over to civilian life. Honor all veterans by empowering these charities and organizations. Get to know veteran’s issues, and make choices that allow you do something about them.
