Plenty of people say they support the military, but for those looking to put their money where their mouth is, the VA Voluntary Service offers diverse opportunities to help the nation’s veterans. Though the VA is often associated with hospitals, the organization has various facilities where volunteers can make a difference. To learn more, fill out the form posted on the website; it also has an option for people who would rather make a monetary donation than a time donation. The FAQ page has additional information.

Homefront Help also has a Facebook page where visitors can gather and share information. If you know of a program that is helping service personnel, veterans or their families please submit that information to Rita Boland, SIGNAL’s senior news editor.
