“Got 10 minutes for a vet?”

Do you ever wish you could do something to honor those who serve? Volunteer for Vets Community Connections, a nonprofit that helps military families reintegrate into their communities. Veterans are matched with individual volunteers who can answer questions about settling into a new community — like how to find a local sports league or a pediatrician. Most volunteers spend just 10 minutes or so on the phone with a vet or his/her spouse. It’s a personal and concrete way to help military families. RELATED:
