/>Many of our nation’s servicemen and women have suffered severe burns, brain damage, loss of limbs, paralysis, and other disabling injuries while serving in Afghanistan or Iraq. Though prepared to battle in defense of the freedom and liberties you and I have in America, these wounded warriors were not prepared for the battle they would be facing when they returned home.
Perhaps you have seen news media reports about the backlog at the Veterans Affairs. Because of the sluggish government bureaucracy, and as reported by the U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, our wounded troops are now waiting TEN MONTHS, on average, for their first disability check to arrive after leaving the hospital and being discharged from service.
Compounding the problem is many of the spouses of our disabled veterans must quit their jobs to take care of them. Others cut back to part-time hours to become caregivers.
With rent, mortgage, food, and utility bills staring them in the face, it becomes extremely difficult for these heroes and their families to avoid financial disaster.
With the generous support of caring people from all across this nation, the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is able to provide emergency financial aid and other important services to these wounded heroes to help them on their road to recovery.
So please make a special, tax-deductible donation right now, because our goal is to provide emergency financial aid to every one of our nation’s veterans who sustain disabling injuries in Afghanistan or Iraq and call for help. With your support, the Coalition will be able to answer the call.
Remember we still have about 48,000 troops serving in Afghanistan.
And more are returning home wounded each week.
You can also show your patriotic support of our wounded warriors in another way. Please send aThank You and Get Well Card to a disabled serviceman or woman and let them know their sacrifice hasn’t been forgotten.
Please give generously. They were there for us, and now it’s our turn to be there for them.

Thanks from Our Heroes
Juan G. Perez, U.S. Army (Ret.)
Without the help of CSAH, my family and I would be homeless. We were facing being evicted and CSAH came along and paid our rent allowing us to get back on our feet. My wife and children are so glad to have the security of our home. Thank you so much for the security you have given our family. One less thing to worry about right now.
“Thank you for everything you have done to help myself and other vets in life. I have had over 50 surgeries from being injured in close quarters combat in Mosul, Iraq on Nov. 19, 2005. I was shot 3 times once in the head, body and through the right shoulder shattering my scapula into 15 pieces. This means so much to me. Not being able to work and live off a budget gets tough let alone going through the process. So thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Ret. Staff Sgt. Dan Shannon
“The Coalition was able to step in and help us when we needed it the most, when [Dan] was leaving the Army but not yet in the VA. They covered that gap for us financially and kept the lights on and a roof over our head and food in our stomachs. That to me is an incredible gesture of thanks.”
“Thank you so very much for thinking about my family during the holidays. They can and usually are some of the worst times for my family because of how depressed I get. As a disabled veteran, things are mostly difficult financially, so every bit helps. Thank you for standing up for veterans and always having our backs.”
“A lot of people just don’t understand how we as veterans struggle sometimes. We have limited finances that don’t last us the entire month after we pay rent, lights, and utilities. So I am so grateful for your gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
Wounded troops who return from service often require extensive help in order to adjust to the dramatic changes that have taken place in their lives. Volunteering just a small portion of your time means a great deal to those who have given so much for all of us. You can help by:
- Running errands for a wounded soldier or his/her spouse;
- Taking a wounded soldier to a movie, baseball game, or other event in their community;
- Mentoring or tutoring wounded troops who want to develop new skills for job training;
- Organizing a community civic organization breakfast or luncheon to raise money and awareness;
- Providing housing for families of wounded soldiers who are recuperating or rehabilitating far from home.
If there’s a wounded service member in your community who needs help, click here to contact us by e-mail or by phone at (888) 447-2588.
Volunteering at a Department of Veterans Affairs Facility
Without the help of volunteers, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) could not provide the quality of health care it offers America’s veterans who have been wounded in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Men and women of all ages serve as volunteer partners on the team of health care providers assigned to each veteran. Some bring skills and knowledge, while others bring a desire to explore and learn.
Many come with a gift for working directly with patients while others bring dependability to assignments behind the scenes. All come bearing the greatest gift of all – themselves.
As a VA volunteer, you will experience the gratitude and recognition of VA staff, and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our nation’s hospitalized veterans.
The Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes receives donations from all walks of life. We are truly grateful for each and every piece of support we get. The following list of companies, foundations, and individuals have gone above and beyond in their contributions (either by direct contribution or through matching gifts) and we wanted to give them special recognition. Any donation to the CSAH is more than an expression of gratitude for the sacrifice made by a veteran who was severely wounded while defending our freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan. We appreciate all who provide them with the means needed to recover from their injuries and illnesses and rebuild their lives.
