A Veteran’s Recovery

If you haven’t noticed recovery is the theme here at TDA; as addicts and alcoholics we should know better than most how tough the journey can be to regain control over one’s life. There are plenty of veterans struggling with addiction, my former first sergeant who now works for the VA informs me it is in fact very common, but there are just as many coming home these days trying to recover their old lives after losing a limb, mobility, or dealing with brain trauma. In honor of these brave soldiers who have so sacrificed, onVeteran’s Day I am making a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project and asking you to do the same.

The WWP is one of the best groups out there at making sure your gift gets to those we want to help with over 80% of every dollar donated providing service to our warriors and their families. They publicly publish their financials and they have the TDA seal of approval. I have made it easy for you, just click the logo above and it will take you straight to their donation page where you can donate online or download a form for mailing a gift.

The holiday highlights the need and donations are needed, but I always try to buy the coffee or spring for lunch in the airports when I have the chance to thank a uniformed soldier regardless of the day. One need not spend a single dime though to show appreciation to our armed forces, a simple smile and a thank you do wonders too.

Thanks to the people who operate the Wounded Warriors Project. Please support them today. Please support our vets and their families as they readjust to life together after the horrors of war.

They do great work… keeping focus on these warriors who have to keep fighting a tough battle long after they have left the field of war.
