If You Want to Help the Military

Building Homes for Heroes:
"We provide individuals, corporations and others with an opportunity to help our severely wounded and disabled veterans and their families rebuild their lives. Building Homes for Heroes is committed to supporting those who have returned home from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan with severe wounds and disabilities, with a goal to build homes for families in dire need. It’s our honor to support those who have been called upon to make a tremendous personal sacrifice."

Troops Direct:
"TroopsDirect supports our front line troops exclusively at larger unit levels with the objective of making them the healthiest, most energized and highest spirited Marines, soldiers, aircrew and sailors that we can."

Fisher House:
"Providing a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury."

Disabled American Veterans:
(they provide transportation to the injured for medical appointments and other appointments and a few more things such as guide dogs).

"Our Mission: The USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families.
Millions of times each year at hundreds of locations around the world, the USO lifts the spirits of America’s troops and their families.  A nonprofit, congressionally chartered, private organization, the USO relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations to support its activities. The USO is not part of the U.S. government, but is recognized by the Department of Defense, Congress and President of the United States, who serves as Honorary Chairman of the USO."
