America’s communities, not governments, can offer real solutions to address the problems facing millions of veterans.

That’s the message of Veteran Nation, a documentary about how we’ve treated those who wore the nation’s uniform.

Organizing a screening of Veteran Nation is an easy and effective way to get your friends, neighbors, and colleagues engaged in serving the nation’s veterans. Much of the video above, for example, was filmed at a special screening in Dallas organized by a Heritage Foundation supporter.

Actually, a question. Why are so many different organizations asking us for money to help veterans? Would it be better for there to be just one combined organization for this?

It seems the military should be taking care of every veteran instead of other orginizations having to do this. Why can’t they?

We do contribute to some of those asking for help and will continue to do that but from our could-be-wrong
view, it could and should be different.

Is Veteran Nation the solution to my thoughts and questions about there being one (1) organization to meet the needs of veterans rather than several ones as there are now??

Shouldn’t the military be taking care of its own? Is it that their budget is that much too small? Meanwhile we will continue helping through those asking us for a donation and hope for a more sane use of tax money.

I am a ww2 veteran and didn’t need government help. thankfully, but did benefit from college tuition.
