I have a soldier who was injured in Iraq. 2 spinal surgeries.

Learning to let go is hard, but it gets easier. I am not getting older just better!

People take their freedom for granted, when you see these men and it's usually all the old time Vets that stand out their with the cans I don't really think they understand of how much they can do with spare change and dollars... I'm sorry to hear about your dad , god bless him!

Thank you for posting this, I am proud of our veterans, especially my dad. He served during WW2 in the Pacific. Sadly, he passed away almost a year ago.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

when you see the veterans outside of the stores, give them your change whatever you can afford... I've recently had to call them to help my dad and WOW!!!!! did you know vets get free lifelines? did you know that saves them 360 dollars a year! My dad also got a wheel chair, new walker that he can sit on, bars for his shower, as shower seat, a 6 ft hose for the shower with shower head, will be getting a hearing aide and will be getting a lift for his scooter along with maintenance for it!
I have always , always given to the veterans it's because of them we enjoy the lives we have and i never knew they helped so much... sure i talked to like 40 different people in 3 weeks but he got everything!
Sure we were there for 3 hrs and I didn't even get a thank from my father for doing all that for him..... but when he passes i'll have a clear conscience unlike my brothers i tried making his life easier, even though i got no thanks...
setting a good example for my son...
