There are those who have served that have suffered. There are visible wounds and there those that one cannot see. We must ensure that they who have borne the brunt of battle, risked their lives, and forfeited their youth are not forgotten. We must assist and help them when and where needed. For that purpose, my participation in many veteran service organizations means much to me because it enables me to continue to serve.

Today, many have a better understanding as to what this means. There are many charities that are veteran focused. Those whose efforts are making available sustenance are very important. We must meet those challenges that are put before us and assist in providing to those who have served our nation and its citizens

Veterans have been through experiences in life that most of us cannot even comprehend. Many of them still carry physical and psychological burdens as remnants of their experiences on the battlefield. Despite the huge sacrifices they have made, many veterans and their families also struggle with food insecurity, poverty and homelessness.

 the Order of St. George's mission is to help Veterans in the United States, their spouses and children whose circumstances have left them on the battlefield of hunger, and to involve the public in fighting Veteran hunger. We do this through:

- Community food pantries that provide regular, free food distributions to veterans and their families

- Walmart gift card program for food purchase.

- Distribution of related goods and services.

- Public education and outreach

More than 130,000 Veterans are homeless and hungry on any given night in America. One in three homeless people in America is a U.S. Military Veteran. And nearly four million Veterans and their families don't have enough to eat during the year. We provide food for veterans and Active-Duty members.

We need your support because our nation's military Veterans have served and sacrificed for our freedom. Many are returning from war to a weak economy, and struggling with injuries, both physical and mental. Too many Veterans are ending up jobless and homeless. Too many are going hungry. We believe it is our duty to give back to these men and women who have given so much for our country.
