Review for THE VETERANS SUPPORT ORGANIZATION, Sunrise, FL, USA
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!!!
