We interrupt our regularly scheduled Monday content for the Memorial Day holiday here in the United States. Each citizen observes and celebrates Memorial Day in their own way.
Today, I will simply shine a spotlight on two veteran-related charities that I feel deserve more attention.
Wounded Warrior Project
To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
BTW, here is a picture of Dalton, our Chief Happiness Officer, who received grooming at the local Petsmart yesterday. With our counter donation to Wounded Warrior Project, Dalton got this tough-looking camouflage bandana and stars and stripes collar tag (okay… not so tough looking in his case).

The Special Operations Warrior Foundation
The Special Operations Warrior Foundation ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical or trade school; provides educational and family counseling to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty; and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded and hospitalized special operations personnel and their families.
This is the charity we will be giving to this Memorial Day.

If you are a citizen of the United States, I hope you will take a moment to look at these two important organizations.
Have a safe Memorial Day!
