Operation120 To Help Transitioning Service Members
We’ve happily watched the touching videos of active servicemembers returning home reuniting with their spouses, children, family, friends and pets. But after the brief merriment, what happens to so many of our heroes next? These same veterans who risked their lives for us daily have returned ‘home’ to the life they missed, only to find themselves feeling isolated, disjointed, unwanted and without purpose. They cannot find employment; many suffer from PTS(D), addiction and behavioral issues. Too many are soon living in the streets with no sense of security and wondering what to do next. It is up to us to help find the answer.
It doesn’t seem fair, after all they’ve endured, to return home from deployment and be at risk for homelessness. Americans must not limit their generosity when it pertains to the basic needs warranted by those who have sacrificed and given so much for us all. Everyone deserves a ‘safe haven’ home and the basic necessities of life we take for granted, including, clothing, food, linens, toiletries, appliances, furniture, computers and automobiles. We must all be grateful to the hundreds of thousands of servicemembers who sacrificed their lives for the betterment of ours; to protect us, our freedom, our rights, possessions and our homes. It is imperative we continue “Honoring Those Who Have Served!”
