helping our veterans

so this being the off topic and all i was actually looking for some non BS answers.

i recently took over helping our veterans committee for my local lodge,

what are some ideas to assist other than visits to the VA hospital, a luncheon with speakers, maybe some type of outing.

i would like to see what this community has for thing to really help or benefit our man and women who are or have served.

i have reached out already to our local VA hospital.............

Viper where you at? What age group are you looking at and what exactly is the lodge looking to do? I'm a vet, work at the VA, and volunteer with several OEF/OIF groups.

Fundraising golf tourney, have a veteran's spouse look at putting together a spouses group, see if there's an outreach process for homeless vets, make certain some of your speakers are medical-types who can speak to Traumatic Brain Injury ... same thing for substance abuse issues.

Understand the Decedant Affairs program, (another good opportunity for a speaker)

There's a hundred other opportunities...

Oh, and Thank You...!
