BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
As a veteran, I will always have a soft spot for anything military. As a female veteran, I understand and appreciate the sacrifices that my fellow sisters in arms made when they joined the military. To learn that after such sacrifices, these women are among one of the fastest growing homeless populations in the U.S. is extremely disheartening. In an effort to help raise awareness (and funds) for the cause, I have chosen to enter the 2016 Ms Veteran America competition. My hope is that in doing so, I can help bring this issue to the forefront and take steps necessary towards getting my fellow veterans on their feet and living the life they deserve - one that includes not having to worry about where they will lay their heads every night. "The mission of Final Salute Inc. is to provide homeless women Veterans with safe and suitable housing. It is estimated that there are currently 55,000 homeless women Veterans in the United States on any given day. For the sacrifices they and their families have made, this is an unacceptable state for any of them to be in. Final Salute Inc. believes in paying women Veterans with the proper respects due to them for the service they have provided to our country. Final Salute also works with the Veteran in establishing her plan towards independence."
