We always see events working to send care packages overseas to our deployed military men and women and we note the importance of encouraging them while they are so far away from home. We don’t deny this is important but we also want to highlight the increasing need of encouragement right here in our backyard.
Veterans who have returned home are in a difficult limbo phase where they are both processing their deployment experience (first or maybe third time) while also hitting the ground running trying to get caught up on life and be back in the loop of helping their families and finding work.
This challenge can be difficult and many do not have the support they need from friends and family or feel bad about asking since they are supposed to be strong from serving their country. We want you to know that these people are in need and we can show them our love and support every day. You can support them financially by donating to The Home Front Cares or by educating yourself on the issues facing veterans of all ages.
