Support ‘Paralyzed Veterans of America’

I would like to tell your readers of your newspaper about an organization that I am proud to support. It is called “Paralyzed Veterans of America.” As a veteran of the United States Navy who had served in the Vietnam era, I applaud such a important organization that helps our disabled veterans.

It is a organization founded in 1946 by a group of veterans who had been paralyzed in WWII. Paralyzed Veterans of America is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving former members of the U.S. Armed Forces who suffered catastrophic paralysis as a result of spinal cord injury or disease. These brave men and women deserve our support, having given their all preserving freedom and protecting what we all hold dear — and that is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as stated in the Constitution.

For more information on how help you can help these very special people who were willing to serve and protect the freedoms we enjoy today, at great cost to themselves and their families, please go to their website at www.SupportVeterans.org. You can also show support for our veterans and all those still serving by flying the American flag on all patriotic holidays. For all this, I say thank you.
