BENEFITING: VETERANS EMPOWERMENT ORGANIZATION OF GEORGIA INC
Veterans are special people who believed that their service to country was important enough to go away for a long time, frequently relocate their families around the world, and put themselves in harm's way so that Americans could remain safe and free.

Our veterans are drawn from many generations and from many backgrounds. Some charged across great battlefields. Some fought on the high seas. Some patrolled the open skies. And all contributed to the character and to the greatness of America.
Veterans returning from combat spend years fighting through emotionally, physically and spiritually arduous circumstances. They return home hoping and searching for a fresh start, new opportunities, and a chance to put the past behind them. Unfortunately, many veterans find the transition challenging, and significant numbers slip into the clutches of poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, depression and suicide.
