This is where I will be posting links to some of the Veteran sites I use. Also some of the Organizations I have found helpful to other Veterans.
Run for the Wall: Mission To promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world. PHILOSOPHY We strive to maintain a safe, supportive and private atmosphere in which all participants can reflect and heal on their journey to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, in the hope they can return home to a new beginning. [This year (2019) 74 riders opened up a 4th route, Sandbox Recon, to Marseilles, IL, and the Middle East Conflicts Wall dedicated to all who have lost their lives there since 1967.]
Mission M25: Mission:M25 serves as chaplains, chase teams, and servant riders on the Run for the Wall. We also hand out some 10,000 bottles of water and sport drinks from our hydration trailer. Upon arrival in Washington DC there will be teams from two IPHC churches to serve food in two different campgrounds. Most importantly, we are on hand to pray with and support any veterans who ask for spiritual help during the run. (I have had the honor of serving as Platoon Chaplain on the Southern Route for the past two years and this year (2019) I was deeply honored to be chosen for the Sandbox Recon, where I served as advance party Chaplain and medic).
National League of POW/MIA Families The League’s single, threefold mission supporting our POW/MIA [s] and KIA/BNR from the Vietnam War is to obtain the release and return of all prisoners, the fullest possible accounting for the missing, and the repatriation of remains of those not yet recovered who died while serving our nation.
TREA The Retired Enlisted Association: The mission of TREA: The Enlisted Association is to enhance the quality of life for uniformed services enlisted personnel, their families and survivors –including veterans, active components,reserve components, and all retirees; to stop the erosion of earned benefits through our legislative efforts; to maintain our esprit de corps, dedication and patriotism; and to continue our devotion and allegiance to God and Country.
