It’s been a little over a week since another sobering September 11th has passed and I think we should all take some time to thank the men and women in our military and I’m not talking about just saying “thank you” whenever you see a person in uniform.
Did you know that there are about 1.5 million active duty personnel serving in the United States’ all-volunteer military today? (That’s right, our military has been an all-volunteer force since 1973!) Add to that an additional 1 million reservists and you get about 2.5 million people protecting the well-being and freedom of the 314 million people that live in the United States.
That equates to less than 1 percent of the men and women in our country volunteering to shoulder the burden of protecting and defending our lives, freedoms, values, and interests. They exhibit such strong character each and every day as they put their lives on the line for all of us!
Right now there are about 23 million veterans in the United States and over 5 million of them are disabled.
ARMing Hero’s is the collection industry’s charity for military veterans and their families. September 11th kicked off their 4th annual No Debts for Vets Annual Fundraiser Drive. If you would like to give to this worthwhile organization, tax deductible donations are now being accepted online at http://www.armingheroes.org and via mail to PO Box 353, Collingswood, NJ 08108, payable to ARMing Heroes.
We here at United Credit Service, Inc. are proud sponsors for this worthwhile charity. Not only are we involved in the One for the Warrior program by having qualifying collectors who can refer veterans for a No Debts for Vets grant, but we also give during the annual fundraiser.
I’m proud to say that last year our organization received a top donor award.
To find our more information about the incredible veteran’s that have received grants from this organization, check out their stories at the link.
