Several years ago Melanie Davis began interviewing veterans and collecting their stories in a project designed to preserve the stories of these individual veterans and their struggle to overcome the challenges of transitioning from the military to civillian life and many of whom did so with combat and service related injuries, including PTSD.
Melanie's project has been growing and spreading out and is taking her places where she can help American veterans with these transitions.
I floated a project to Appleseed a while back hoping we could find local charities to partner with so that we could give back to our communities locally. It did not go anywhere, but, that does not mean you can not get involved and help out in some way by supporting the people who are trying to help others.
Before big government took over the role of handing out money to charities and organizations who helped their fellow Americans, American citizens took care of everyone in the country on their own, and at a much better rate. We know what our local charities need and don't need. We are perfectly willing to help out with money, donations and physical and mental labor without anyone taking it out of our paychecks by force.
