BENEFITING: Iraq And Afghanistan Veterans Of America Inc
Knot Rite is starting a fund to help real veterans in our community. I am a veteran myself and proud of the service we have given to our country. Since I have been back it has has been a living nightmare. Social and pshysical relatationship alll went up in smoke. I was mad and it seemed that the more i look at it i would have to say that this has been the hardest thing i have ever had to deal with. People talk about it, and they can tell you all the solutions, but untill you actually live in a combat zone there is no comparison. So i set this fund up to help those that come back and have no where to go. I have been there and continue to struggle with ptsd, but I know i can make a difference. I will use the funds to make real changes in veterans lives. We get promised alot and never seem to get it, but that is going to change. I want to be able to go to the VA doms and hand a vet a tv or a book something real, something worth something, not just promises.
