Three years ago I was looking for a Military charity to become involved with. Fortunately General Colin Powell and Lt. Colonel Oliver North were in Louisville to speak during the springtime. I asked each of them seperately which organization I should try to get involved with. Both of these men immediately urged me to seek out USA Cares ,which is just 40 minutes from my home in Louisville. I solicited a few people I knew on the Board and within a year I was a Board member. I can say from first hand experience the Board and the staff exist to serve military families who are in financial crisis. Every effort is made to raise more and more money which will go to these deserving families. Of all the non-profits I have been involved with USA Cares is the most focused on executing their mission. It is truly a wonderful organization.
