Make A Donation To Military Relief Societies

It is important to realize that situations are different than they were during the Vietnam Conflict and prior where "regular" service personnel were used. Most of the troops deployed now are National Guard or Reserve units, utilizing people who have had to leave their full time jobs to join the fight against terrorism. The troops themselves are probably fairing pretty well, but many of their families are struggling with reduced or, in some cases, NO financial income! Please consider helping out with a contribution.
