THE VETERANS SUPPORT ORGANIZATION
February 25, 2011

I first encountered VSO about three years ago and when I found out the fundraisers got paid I kind of questioned that.But the more I dug in past the mud slinging from other groups who dont seem to be doing as much,it makes perfect sense.When they give a VET a grant to pay his rent they offer him a way to pay it next month while he/she spreads the word about the grant program.When my dad a vietnam vet,fell and needed some guidance getting some home health care I called the GA.office and in less than 24hrs. they wired him $300 to pay someone to help him until we could get some help set up through the VA.Thats a pretty dog on fast response to a vet in need.Dad had called 2 other groups he had been a member of for decades....He passed away in Sept...they still havent returned his calls.It seems to me if these groups stop slinging mud at each other and worked together a lot more good could be done for Americas Finest.As far as paying a homeless vet to help other vets,what could be a better job?He rebuilds his dignity while saving money to support his/herself,instead of being a burden on our governments social services.Dont we have enough of that going on?Give a man a fish he eats for a day,teach him how to fish and he feeds his self a lifetime.All I have to say about VSO and what Ive seen them do for vets is HOOAAH!!!

The Great!

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

GA. FL. TX. TN. NY.

Ways to make it better...

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

they should have have offices and sober living in every state in the nation.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & I told my buddies and family members about VSO so they could get help when needed.
