AID OUR VETERANS INC
October 9, 2012

I was attending a gun show last weekend when I came across this organization. The woman, Suzette, was sharing information about their charity and told me about their Hematite program. Hematite is a magnetized stone that they turn into jewelry and wear it to reduce aches and pains. Well Aid Our Veterans program is that every time someone buys a piece of Hematite jewelry for themselves, they, Aid Our Veterans will then give a piece of jewelry out to a recovering Veteran on behave of the customer. I was skeptical so I skipped at buying anything and just made a dollar donation. About 40 minutes later I was in the aisle behind her and watched as she greeted a war wounded Vet in a wheel chair. "Welcome Home Honey" she said, and then got into a long discussion about his service and how his recovery was going. She gave this veteran a necklace, 2 bracelets, 2 rings and a necklace and bracelet to his girl friend. The soldier asked her how much and she said "nothing for you hero. All these fine people around here have donated to our organization so we can provide these to you. It's our way and their way of saying Thank you for your service!" WOW! The crowd cheered this soldier and you could see the emotion in Suzette's eye, a tear of such heartfelt appreciation. Thank You Aid Our Veterans and especially Suzette. And Yes, I went back by and bought a bracelet.
