Happy Veteran’s Day From The Gaslamp Post

Posted on November 11, 2012


From the bottom of my heart I would just like to say to all of my currently serving and formerly enlisted readers of The Gaslamp Post, thank you for all that you have done for this great nation of ours.  Your honorable service and sacrifices in the name of American freedom and liberty is most appreciated.

Had it not been for the selfless acts of bravery and duty to our country, we would not be the people we are today.  God Bless each and every one of you.

America, I would also like to remind you today that we also honor the memory of those who paid the ultimate price for securing our liberties, as well as their families.  There are also the wounded warriors who have come home and are still trying to put the battles behind them, but now have new ones ahead of them as they try to recover from injuries that may never go away.

I know the holidays are around the corner and we are all cash-strapped, but if at all possible I would ask that you please consider giving to one of the organizations that I continually give to.  They who sacrificed everything to give us our freedoms more than deserve our consideration.

The Wounded Warrior project provides support for returning soldiers who have been wounded in combat and their families.  You can either make a one time donation or provide monthly contributions if you have the means.  You can learn more about our wounded warriors and how this program is impacting their lives by going to http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.

The Fischer House provides lodging for the families of our wounded warriors while they receive the specialized medical care that they need.  You can make a one time donation or provide monthly contributions if you are able.  Please visit http://www.fisherhouse.org/ for more information on how you can send a gift that will help these families.

From The Gaslamp Post, God Bless you all, and Happy Veteran’s Day!

P.S.  I apologize to all my USMC readers, I was reminded by my buddy Marine Dave, that yesterday was the United States Marine Corps 237th birthday.  Happy birthday MARINES!
