It is organizations like the US Vets that really take care of our veterans and I for one thank them for all their efforts and success. These people make a difference. They do not sit around and complain about anything and everything. They help our veterans without looking for anything back except a smile and a great feeling for helping others less fortunate. Many of the regular posters here should take note.
