Paying it Forward by Helping a Veteran Today

By
Industry Observer with Responsive Pest Control

Hi all: Happy Veteran's Day! I received an email from a colleague of mine today asking to help a vet. who is on a fixed income and barely making it. I think I will help. I wish I had more money to help more but want to help this stranger who served our country.

Today is a special day in the lives of our veterans and I'm glad I can Pay it Forward in some small way. Now I'll have to think about what I can do tomorrow. My ultimate goal would be to pay it forward every day! Have a great day today. I'm heartened by so many honoring our troops today.

Paying it forward is always a great thing!  They way I see it, if you have 5 bucks to spare or 50, the amount doesn't matter, it's where your heart is.

Have a great day and keep paying it forward

That's awesome Paul! Every little bit can help... you get a few people to contribute a little and it starts to turn into a lot! I wish this Vet was the exception but unfortunately a lot of our Nation's heroes need help. Hopefully some day it will be different. In the mean time, kudos to you!

It breaks my heart to hear of anyone struggling, but especially when it is one of our Vets.  These people gave to our country without hesitation, they shouldn't have to struggle.  Thank you for helping!
