Our mission is to remember and educate. We have heard it from so many: Our books help to "heal the world". Your purchase also helps us support a variety of non-profits on a monthly basis doing the good work of veteran support and Holocaust remembrance and education.
Some of the organizations we support:
"The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of a forty-year advocate for our nation's defenders, actor Gary Sinise. Its outreach supports those who sacrifice to defend our country: active duty, veterans, first responders, and their loved ones. While our mission is broad, we've created nine key programs to show gratitude for our American heroes through entertainment, family support, and acts of appreciation. The Gary Sinise Foundation works to ensure the sacrifices of America's defenders and their families are never forgotten."
National Veterans Foundation
"The mission of the National Veterans Foundation (NVF) is to serve the crisis management, information and referral needs of all U.S. Veterans and their families through: Management and operation of the nation's only toll-free helpline for all veterans and their families. Public awareness programs that shine a consistent spotlight on the needs of America's veterans. NVF offers outreach services that provide veterans and families in need with food, clothing, transportation, employment, and other essential resources.
The founder of the National Veterans Foundation, Floyd ‘Shad' Meshad has been working with Veterans since 1970. Meshad was a Medical Service Officer during the Vietnam War, where he counseled soldiers in the field who were suffering from a multitude of psychological and emotional problems resulting from their experiences in combat, including what would later become known as ‘Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,' or PTSD."
