    I am 100% disabled service connected combat related. I am afraid to get out of my home. Knowing that this is for veterans. I would represent my brothers in arms. This is wonderful what you are doing for vets!

    This is great. I really enjoyed reading about life experiences that others have went through. Felt like I was reading about myself.
