As Memorial Day approaches, I’m reminded how grateful I am for the freedoms that we have in this nation.  And the cost that so many men and women have paid to protect those freedoms and keep our families safe.

While you’re enjoying an extra day off work and celebrating the holiday with friends and family around the BBQ, consider saying thank you to the brave men and women of our armed forces by making a gift to one of these organizations:

Special Operations Warrior Foundation

Wounded Warrior Project

Paralyzed Veterans of America

Veterans of Foreign Wars

Vietnam Veterans of America

National Military Family Association

Operation Homefront
