ric paralympic sports camp and fantasy baseball camp: these camps are specifically designed to introduce disability sports into the lives of injured servicemen and servicewomen of the united states armed forces. The positive impact is not only physical but psychological as well, as evidenced through increased socialization and self-esteem and provides an opportunity for setting and achieving goals.

I have not benefitted from this organization as I am not a Vet. I do however want to say that I know of what this organization does and how it truly affects the families and people it helps. I am in awe of the commitment of the founders and staff at Salute. They have 1 mission only TO HELP when they can. I wish we had more committed people in this country to help our vets. These men and women do provide us the very blanket of freedom we all sleep under each night. So many have given their lives for this country. Thank you SALUTE for all you do for these brave American Hero's.

This organization only helps vets in disability ratings above 70% and is not notated on their website but they do claim that they try to help veterans as much as they can but they cannot help me.

Salute is everything we'd like a non-profit organization to be! They are small and sensitive group, agile enough to be able to react quickly, focusing all of their time and energy on those they help.

Of course, everyone has a special place in their heart for needs they feel touch them most closely. Salute has chosen to do all they can to assist members of the U. S. military services, veterans, and their families. Members of our military have always been there for ALL Americans. So, Salute emphasis is on a more universal interest, not one concentrated on helping a more narrowly focused group.

Sometimes military personnel, veterans, or their families need assistance beyond what the government provides. I love the fact that Salute is there to step in to make sure each of these people is treated with the honor and dignity they deserve as human beings, but also for all they have given to us and our country.

I have seen Salute help both individuals and families who had reached the virtual breaking point, bringing them back by providing the sound footing to move forward. What could be better?
My compliments to all who work at, with and through Salute!
