Often those who have sacrificed much and more for our freedom and country are forgotten. It is sad and unfair that appreciation for our veterans is not shown enough, but companies like Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) are out fighting for the rights and honors of our veterans. Recently, VFW offered considerable aid to a veteran who had been wounded in combat several times. VFW helped Michael Burns through financial means to secure his and his family’s futures.
Michael Burns was injured several times over multiple tours of duty in Iraq. He demonstrated incredible bravery and dedication as he returned to action each time, once only a month after injuries. It is this kind of hero that a nation can respect and be grateful for. However Michael Burns returned to the United States after his services to discover that he was not able to work in most jobs due to his injuries. In a time of severe financial struggle, the VFW’s Unmet Needs program offered their aid after Michael’s case had been presented.
VFW fully funded the family’s rent and utilities as thanks for the veteran’s service and sacrifice. It is comforting to know that there are organizations like Veterans of Foreign Wars that are willing to step up to the plate and serve those who have served our nation.
Medals of America bears similar traits as we continue to strive to bring about better awareness and appreciation for our veterans. Those who have served and sacrificed for the freedom and preservation of others and the United States will always be remembered, respected, and appreciated for as long as groups like VFW, Medals of America and other Veteran organizations work for a brighter future and a remembered past.The VFW Gives Much Needed Aid to Veteran,
