I have joined the woundered warriers program...they have done so much for their country...I don't give a large amount, but every few dollars help out.  They are our heros! :)

Sgt. Ricardo Ramirez, a combat replacement for 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, wades through an irrigation canal to move into a night observation post in Sangin, Afghanistan, Aug. 5. In February of 2006, Ramirez was wounded in action while serving in Iraq with 3rd Bn., 5th Marines and two years later became the first hand-amputee to re-enlist in the Marines Corps. Since then the multiple-tour combat veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan has served as an urban warfare instructor, attended the pre-sniper course at division schools and stayed close to his infantry roots.

There are many organizations that help support wounded vets.  We had gotten an e-mail before (we no longer have it, wish we did) and it listed the top 100 vet organization starting with the ones that put the most of the donations toward the vets.  The sugesstion was anything less than 80% towards the people they were helping had to much ovewrhead.   The one thing you cannot not see usually the CEOs salary.  There are alos many organizations that help families while the soldiers are fighting which is also important and those famile whose soldier never makes it home.  That is a high price families pay for US.
