" NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL GOOD MEN TO COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY" RINGS LOUD AND CLEAR IN MY HEAD AS I SET DOWN TO DISCRIBE MY FEELINGS FOR THIS GROUP OF HARD WORKING AND DEDICATED GUYS AND GIRLS.GLAD THEY ALLOW ME TO JOIN IN. EVER TEST I HAVE GIVEN THEM (I MEAN FOLKS I BROUGHT FOR HELP) THEY HAVE FAR EXCEEDED WHAT I EXPECTED. I CAME NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT AND FOUND LOTS OF ANSWERS TO MY OWN QUESTIONS AND LEARNED LOTS OF QUESTIONS TO ASK. PROUD TO BE A PART OF WE GROW AND GROW.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

MANY ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT I THOUGHT ANSWERS WERE NOT THERE.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

GROW IT IN NUMBERS AND SPIRIT

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

A CHANCE TO GIVE SOME BACK

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

ALL DEDICATED AND WILLING TO FALL OUT FOR ANYTHING NEEDED

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

DO SO MANY THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO SCRATCH FOR NOW. REACH MORE NEEDS FASTER AND BECOME MORE STABLE

Ways to make it better...

IF I HAD BECOME A PART SOONER

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

BRING MORE FOLKS TO THE TABLE

One thing I'd also say is that...

AS WE KNOW FROM OUR COMMON EXPERIENCES IN THE SERVICE WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.

This foundation has been and is a huge asset to the community of Middle Tennessee. They gave of themselves in service to our country during a time of war, and are unshelfishly and still are serving the nation's veterans.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In being help finicially when in need and educated on how to help serve the veterans that are hurting in our area.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being able to help other veterans in need and seeing the fear gone away from their faces, after receiving help form us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Getting food and other items, to veterans that will help them in their daily lives....making thing a little bit better. The people who help have the biggest hearts that I have ever experienced

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Just having a building that would provide a one stop operation for the veterans in need

The Vietnam Veterans of Nashville help our vets and others in many ways, by donating their time and their experience. I currently have two sons serving in the armed forces and they have gained great insight from some of these wonderful men who have served our country and still serve it through this organization!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help many veterans to get their lives back. It could help by getting many of them who are homeless, back on their feet with jobs and a sense of dignity once again.

For the past several years, my husband a veteran has served as an officer in veterans organizations. I can not explain how his participation in these organizations especially Vietnam Veterans Chapter 953 and The Vietnam Veterans of Nashville Foundation have helped him. The fellowship that these men share are like a brotherhood that many will never understand. Many thanks to this organization and the dedicated men and women that make them work.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the change in my husband.

My grandfather, father and husband have all served in the military. Sadly, I have lost all three now. We have so much to thank our veterans for. The Vietnam Veterans of Nashville served our country but their service did not stop there. They now serve our community and reach out to offer help and guidance to others in need. This is a great organization that deserves our support.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly and eager to help. They treat everyone as a member of their family.

I think this is a wonderful organization and I hope it will continue doing the work that they have been doing for many, many years to come. I personally work with a Vietnam Vet and he is a wonderful man very proud of his country and for the good in which it stands for. My grandfather was also a Vet, I'm not sure which war he was in but he is buried in the soldier cemetary here in Nashville TN. Please keep this organization up & running.

publicise it more
