They do a great job ensuring our Vets are taken care of physically and emotionally. They've done a wonderful job helping them re-adjust to life after the service and the difficulties some of them encounter after their return to civilian life. What could they do better? They need better resources to get their word out and avenues for revenue stream to help more Vets.
