Local veterans organizations are a valuable community resource for the veteran. They provide opportunities for socializing, mutual support, friendship, and information that veterans need.
Each veterans group having membership in the council has a web page in the site plus a link to its national site. Links to national organizations provide useful information having application to all outstanding Americans. Please don't overlook these resources - they contain helpful information about oratory craft (how to make a speech), youth scholarships, tidbits from American history, quotes of the day, flag courtesy, healthcare news, and more . . .
