Serving Veterans As Grateful Americans!
Message to our Veterans and their loved ones,
Thank You for Your Service! Know that you are not alone. You do not have to continue to carry the burdens of war on your own. There are Warrior Groups across the country. The PTSD Foundation of America and Camp Hope are here to Help. Camp Hope offers a PTSD recovery program in which veterans attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans; conduct individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; and participate in off-site small group interaction activities to assist in their personal healing. The veteran's families are involved throughout the counseling and recovery processes. The following videos show the great work of Camp Hope: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLbCrNYcDAU&sns=em.

PTSD Foundation of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring to our combat veterans and their families with post traumatic stress. Many warriors are coming home with visible wounds; countless others are coming home with scars we cannot see, wounded souls from witnessing the horrors of war over and over again – PTSD. We feel it is our duty as Americans to help these mighty warriors and their families adjust and find their new normal.

The cornerstone of the OI Civilian-to-Military Delivery System® is the Civilian Ration ® (called C-rat ®). Designed for delivery to the frontlines, C-rats are individual quart-sized baggies that contain a personal note from a caring civilian at home and a few treats such as snacks, games and personal care products. The most important part of the C-rat is the letter from a person who has never met that Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman, but takes the time to write his or her expressions of care and concern.
TexVetis dedicated to providing veterans, military members and their families with equal access to information. By collecting federal, state, and local Veteran Service Organization (VSO) information, TexVet has created an online Veterans Services Provider Network (VSPN).

VetJobs is the leading Internet niche job board for reaching the 10.5 million military veterans currently in the work force, the 200 thousand active duty military personnel who transition each year, the over 400,000 members of the National Guard and Reserve who return to the United States each year from extended deployments, and their family members.
VetJobs was established in 1999 following extensive research on job and resume sites catering to the military market. The research indicated there was a gap in sites which assisted employers in identifying the transitioning military and veteran candidate. VetJobs is operated by a seasoned management team of professionals to assist companies, recruiting firms and hiring authorities to successfully reach the military market.
VetJobs is owned and operated by veterans for veterans. In January 2000, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States exclusively sponsored and purchased ten percent of the company. Since then, VetJobs has garnered more veteran service organization endorsements than any other site. Major endorsements include the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Naval Reserve Association and the Veterans of Modern Warfare. www.vetjobs.com.
The Mesothelioma Center (asbestos.com/veterans/) is an additional resource. According this firm, nearly one-third of annual mesothelioma cases are former service-members due to the use of asbestos in many different military applications and equipment. Their information and services all free to use and they help veterans navigate the complicated VA claims process.
