For our vets coming home from the war, returning to a normal life can be dauntingly difficult. Veterans are at a severe disadvantage in our nimble world. Tech For Vets has a simple mission: to contribute to a Veteran’s reintegration into civilian life by giving them a lifeline back into society, a computer. Finding a job, connecting with buddies, or exploring the altered world they find themselves in, can make all the difference between hope and gloom.
While we all enjoy our fireworks and barbeques, please stop for a moment and honor our men and women of the military by helping to purchase a new computer or repair an old one, and receive a reward in appreciation. Visit their funds raising project at:
“Our returning Vets deserve not only our appreciation but our support. TechforVets is an organization that is working to provide computers to Veterans and Veteran organizations. These computers can be a lifeline in assisting our Vets to find job opportunities, advance their education, or just connect with like-minded buddies across the country. I wholeheartedly support their efforts and hope you will too.”
