On Veterans Day, we received a beautiful message from a combat veteran, asking how he can get involved in @home. His generosity and passion to keep on serving is truly extraordinary, and the movement to end homelessness is lucky to have another wonderful advocate on board. Read on:
I am a currently in the military-army. I will be honorably discharged January 17, 2014. I saw your program on the internet today. Sharing is great and all, but how can I HELP?! Being a combat veteran, there would be no great joy for me than helping those who have served before, those who have given so much for our nation.
I will be moving to Waco Tx. I will be going on terminal leave around the 20th of December. Which means that I will be getting home right before Christmas. A holiday of joy for many of us, but sadness for so many others. I would like nothing more than to give joy to veterans on that day. Is there anybody in Texas I can get in touch with? Anybody who's sole purpose and focus is on our veterans? A company or organization that I can volunteer for year round?
Any and all help/information on this matter would be more than appreciated.
Thank you so much for what you are doing. Words cannot describe how I feel about your organization.
