Welcome to the Vet post. The vet post has been redone with a live chatroom which will hold 60 people at a time for real time conversions. It has a wonderful new forum as well. I'm looking for help with the site. A post of your stories funnies or problems. On the page or the forums or both. Do you have a group or blog. I can add your own section to the forums which is easy to follow or search. Its much more conventional to search and find things than Facebook. I'm also setting up a links page. Do you have a good link to a group or veterans help or maybe a food bank. How about a good or bad doctor in your area of the country. Alternative medical treatment or doctors? You can post yourself or email me at email@example.com if you like as well. Thank you for your support. Don't for get to tell your friends.
The Vet post is backed up several times a week so don't worry about loosing your blog or stories like some of you have on blog sites. ... See MoreSee Less
Great opportunity! Now through Veterans Day, November 11, you can “Help A Hero” further their education toward post-military goals when you get a haircut at one of the more than 1,500 Sport Clips Haircuts locations across the U.S.
Sport Clips has worked with the VFW since 2007 and created the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program in 2013. Each scholarship provides up to $5,000 of assistance to qualified individuals who have served in the military, are in need of financial assistance, and are pursuing an education at post-secondary institutions, including trade schools.
Donations to the Help A Hero campaign will be collected by Sport Clips stylists and other team members in stores and at local fundraising events. Sport Clips will also hold “The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year” on Veterans Day, when participating stores will offer haircuts free to service members and veterans with valid military ID. The company also will donate a dollar from every haircut service to the VFW-administered scholarship program. ... See MoreSee Less
