BREAKING NEWS: Veterans Charity Remembers Vietnam Veterans!

Ok, I know the headline is a bit harsh, but that is the reality families like mine live with everyday. 

Call one of the newer charities and end up being told they are only interested in the OEF and OIF veterans. I am still waiting to find out who decided that our generation didn't need, or deserve any attention from them. After all, while veterans over the age of 50 are 65% of the veterans committing suicide, you'd think they'd care. But they don't. 

At least not until now and all I can say is GOD BLESS THE RED SOX for remembering the majority of veterans in this country are still waiting for help!

"Hammond and the Home Base Program he leads are working to change that. After eight years of treating Iraq and Afghanistan veterans for PTSD and other unseen injuries, the private partnership between the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital is poised to extend treatment to those who served in Vietnam and their families."
