US Vets is the largest operator of homeless veterans programs in the country. For more information on US VET Inc and their programs that are in support of our veterans visit http://www.usvetsinc.org/. I have also written a post about US VETS that will give you more information.
This is your opportunity to come out and spend a day with a VET. I know that we often think of our Vietnam Veterans but they have Veterans from all our recent wars going back to World War II.
The barbeque is being hosted by the Houston area chapter members of Rolling Thunder and the Rotary Club of Sharpstown.
