My challenge to you America is now to go one step further than the thank you - time to ask what you can do for the warrior who lives in your neighborhood.
Remember President John Kennedy's quote? "...Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."
Last month I was in Atlanta at Nat Con for Entrepreneur Bootcamp for Veterans and Families. Each one of their businesses help the Veteran and we were there to learn how to get the funding to get our businesses started with sustainable incomes. They are now another part of my military family in their own right that has become a big part of my life as I turn this series into a not for profit organization. Each business is part of the 47,000 businesses and organizations that help our Veterans. That may seem like a lot of businesses. Who do you turn to and support their causes? Stand behind what we do and I am praying you stand with me as I help teach the importance of action in helping others to understand my Veterans and their families sacrifice through your donations.
Military life is so special and it doesn't end as they transition into American society. As they did everything to protect and keep us safe and free, we must do everything we can to open the doors for our Veterans to thrive. Come to the parade and visit the expo with your families and see "A Military Series - A Parent's Perspective". Ask about the "Heroes Among Us" book project and how you can volunteer in a creative day with our Veterans and their families. Learn what you can do along with the other Veteran organizations making a difference in Central NY.
