A Simple Gift for Soldiers
Warrenton, VA-In the hospitals and rehabilitation units where America’s young wounded heroes continue to display their incredible courage and fight to regain their health and mobility, they ask only to be remembered. And, to be sure, many sportsmen/-women are looking for ways to say “We won’t forget” but also for ways to say “Thank you,” especially during this special holiday season.
It may be easier to show your gratitude than you think.
When these valiant servicemen and women are asked what they’d like to do again either during or after their rehabilitation, a frequent answer is, “I’d like to go hunting and fishing again.” And experience clearly demonstrates that going hunting, fishing or enjoying a day at the shooting range helps our heroes heal, gain confidence in their abilities, build new support networks and, in general, be happier and more positive about life.
Providing those opportunities requires funding, of course, and many good organizations are working to make these outdoor opportunities available to the troops. Among them is the Paralyzed Veterans of America-Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund (PVA-ORHF) which has established a simple, easy way for sportsmen/-women to give a little and help a lot.
By clicking on www.100000patriots.org, outdoorsmen and -women can make a Christmas donation to a permanent endowment fund established specifically to organize hunting, fishing, shooting and other outdoor activities for America’s wounded heroes and help them heal.
It would be a simple-but meaningful- gift of thanks.
