Veterans Groups Joined Forces But Left Out Most Veterans

As with everything else, notice that not all veterans are helped by this group. 65% of the veterans committing suicide are pre-9-11 veterans but they are forgotten about. 

Nothing will change until there are "none the less" veterans. 

Nonprofit joins together veterans, rescue dogs

Several veterans are looking for a new start with new K9 companions thanks to a nonprofit organization.
The American Legion Auxiliary presented a $9,100 check to the K9s for Warriors nonprofit. The organization provides service dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma during military service post-9/11. 

The cost to train each dog is around $27,000 which the organization provides to veterans at no cost.

Service dogs are wonderful but they would be wonderful for all generations of our veterans. I am unapologetic about the way I feel toward all these new groups totally dismissing the sacrifices made by older veterans and the fact they waited longer for someone to care about them.

What kind of Veterans Day is it for the majority of our veterans? Ever think about what kind of message this sends them? Ever wonder what it is like for them to read about something wonderful happening for other veterans while they are abandoned?
