For Our Veterans
Resource links. Thank you, Adam.
When Veterans Day rolled around this year , I couldn’t help but think about the toll the last several months have probably taken on our nation’s heroes. I thought a very small gesture to show my appreciation for all of the sacrifices these men and women have made would be to reach out to sites like yours with a mission to support vets and offer some additional resources you may wish to add to ridgesystemstn.com:
