Review for Wreaths Across America, Columbia Falls, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Wreaths Across America is an experience and to truly appreciate what it does, one should spend an hour at a National Cemetery laying a wreath or a couple wreaths on the gravesides of our veterans. Read the headstone aloud, especially to a child or grandchild. Tell the story of World War II or Korea or Viet Nam or even the Cold War or more currently, the Global War on Terror. Discuss the service and the sacrifice our veterans have made, their branch of service.

Review for HOMELESS VETERANS SERVICES OF DALLAS INC, Dallas, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There is likely no other veteran service organization making such an impact on the lives of Dallas and Dallas area veterans. This organization was founded by Marine veteran and 2007 Marine Corps League Marine of the Year Ken Watterson with no funds. He organized transportation to get veterans to the VA Hospital, open and operates a day center for homeless veterans where they can receive education, job training and to have a place to take a shower and have a hot meal. All of this being done without Ken taking a dime of salary and run on the tighest of budgets.

Since 2012, they have served over 26,000 veterans and have become a hub for Veteran Support services in the area.
