Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate home located in Liberty Township, north of Youngstown Ohio.


We have helped so many veterans with similar needs, but it never gets old or repetitive, every veteran has a unique situation and helping that veteran makes a huge impact on their daily living.  An agency Caseworker brought our attention to a homeless veteran that was inline to get housing through HUD-VASH, which is a fantastic program administered through the VA.

However, it doesn’t happen immediately, and this leaves the veteran with an interim period of “What do I do until then, where can I go?”  That’s where we stepped in for this veteran, we provided a hotel stay until his new home was ready for him.

Incarcerated Veterans Reach Out to Help

Today, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate office located in Liberty Township, just north of Youngstown, Ohio.

We want to share a dear letter that we received from a Veterans Group that are currently imprisoned at Northeast Ohio Correctional Center.  In the past, this group has done numerous fundraisers to benefit Veterans’ Outreach which in turn benefits veterans.  Their donations have helped dozens of veterans, something they are very proud to be able to do, considering their circumstances.  2020 has been a very difficult year for all of us, some more than others.
We share this letter to provide you, the reader, with a brief look at life in prison during a Pandemic.

Veteran Donates Mobility Scooter/Veterans Receive Mobility Scooter

This week, we would like to share a “Case of the Week” from our corporate home office located in Liberty Township, just north of Youngstown Ohio.

Veteran Donates Mobility Scooter/Veterans Receive Mobility Scooter

A very generous veteran donated a working Golden Companion Scooter.  He just wanted a vet in need to benefit from the freedom that this scooter could offer to a disabled veteran.  A couple of days later, a veteran and his wife came to our office for help with food and financial issues.  Through the conversation, we learned that the veteran’s father is also a veteran.  They both have physical disabilities, as well as his wife.  We offered them the Golden Companion, and they were surprised and thrilled like  “kids on Christmas morning”.  What a blessing it is that we can play a role in veterans helping veterans.

“Politics” Is A Dirty Word

Politics can be traced as far back as Aristotle, the “Father of Political Science”.  The very definition of politics is about people making agreements so that they can live together in groups such as tribes, cities, or countries and all share benefit from those agreements.  The problem is that we all think we know best. 


Perhaps we should remember our veterans and look to them for guidance.  Do they worry about politics when on a mission?  Do they concern themselves with party affiliation when fighting to protect our nation?  They stand united for the success of the mission.  

When it comes to politics, choosing sides can be a painful decision.  An increasing number of folks don’t want to identify which party they belong to for fear of alienating a neighbor, coworker, a family member, or friend.  Voting is a privilege that we as Americans are blessed with, thanks to our veterans protecting our country and our constitution.  In America, we are free to choose, and should not feel fear or shame for what we believe. 


Our choices shouldn’t drive us away from our fellow Americans…but it does! Political Parties are dangerous!  When running for office, an individual should do it on their own merit. The substance of their character and platform should be the markers that will land them in a leadership position.  Oh yeah and how about a good grade on a, United States Constitution quiz! 


How about term limits?  Imagine the changes that would happen if a Senator or Congressional Representative knew that politics was not a life long career, but truly public service?  The ripples would flow to the very core of all the political strife that we are now experiencing.  The bellicose and slanderous insults are just going to drive us further in the mud.


Our veterans have laid their lives down for this nation.  Think about the slogans and mottos of our service men and women.  “Army of ONE”, or the Marines “Semper Fi”, or “Semper Fidelis” which means Always Faithful.  The Air Force has a few including “Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win, and Integrity first, Service before self, Excellence in all we do”.  The Navy has had several mottos but the one that resonates is  “Non Sibi Sed Patriae” which means Not for self, but country. The Coast Guard defends our coastlines and carries the motto “Semper Paratus” which means Always Ready.  Our National Guard serves both our communities and our country with the slogan “Always Ready, Always There”.  These mottos and slogans, by our warriors should hold a direction for us all. 


We can’t let 2020 put all of us asunder, and you know, the devil is in the details. We are AMERICANS, One Nation Under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.  Remember that when you see an ad or a yard sign that you don’t agree with.
