Oregon writer of Love our Vets
Love our vets blog

We can never express enough gratitude to our honored veterans for their service and sacrifice.  For many the sacrifice will continue for the rest of their lives. We also want to acknowledge and thank the families and all loved ones of veterans for their support and sacrifices, which all too often go unnoticed.

In my recently released book, Love Our Vets: Restoring Hope for Families of Veterans with PTSD, I include a section about how we can best survive patriotic holidays such as Veterans’ Day.  For some it is a very positive time; for others however, it can be a dark, stressful time, both for our vets and their families. But there are some things we as loved ones can do to make it as positive as possible.  We do love and appreciate our vets!!

Here are some discounts I came across on the internet…be sure to check them out before you order your prime rib or lobster.  God bless you all!!!

What a resource! Had no idea. I hope our vets know.

Just Me November 12, 2012

Now to me, this is a splendid chance to invite that serviceman you know out to dinner. After the lemon pie, make sure to say thanks to him, or her as it may be.
