About 'Remember A VEteran Inc.' [R A V E™]
Our veterans represent the heart and soul of America … having defended and protected us at home and abroad ... enabling us to live as a free nation.
Embracing the popular and often quoted slogan ‘Freedom Is Not Free’, we must always remember the price of freedom, the cost of war… many have made the ‘ultimate sacrifice’ leaving family and friends to serve our country and then passing prematurely, never to live out the rest of their lives … Those veterans who have survived the horrors and carnage of wars and conflicts and returned home are often haunted by such memories.
Still others are left to deal with an array of physical and emotional injuries including but not limited to loss of limb(s), traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress (PTSD), thoughts of suicide, low morale; other. They return home to embark on a new life chapter, seeking viable opportunities for employment, education, family, housing, lifestyle - and our remembrance.
While we periodically embrace the heroics of our service members and veterans, the long-term remembrance is short-lived. We need a continuum for prominent focus so that day-to-day ‘remembrance’, 'thanks' and ‘acknowledgement’ are significantly proportionate to the degree of service and sacrifice by our veterans. We must always Remember A VEteran!
As a proud American, what can I do? What can you do?
