Giving Back to Those Who Served

I recently found a wonderful organization that gives back to veterans and active duty military.  The organization is called Veteran Tickets Foundation.  Here is the description of the organization from their website:

It’s in the nature of Veterans to step up. So we did.
The kind of people who volunteer to serve their country, the ones who put their nation first and their own lives second, are the kind of people we need to honor everyday. Not just on Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day and the Fourth of July, but everyday.
Through The Veteran Tickets Foundation, now those who care about Veterans have a way to give back. Everyday, in every city, there are events with empty seats that could be filled by those who served. More than that, many event tickets are simply unaffordable for average people. We believe the events that bring Americans together in the spirit of celebration, competition and camaraderie—those all-American moments are the times we need welcome and acknowledge our Veterans.
Who we are.
We are a national non-profit, non-governmental 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. All contributions made to the organization are deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code. But most importantly, we’re a dedicated group of business people who are also Veterans.
We served our country. And now it’s our privilege to serve Veterans and to provide an opportunity for the rest of America to express its thanks and gratitude.
When Veterans or Active Duty Miltary go to an event or their favorite sports team for free, we want them to feel a collective “thank you” from all of us to all of them.
That’s what we are committed to creating, everyday. Join us.

What a great concept!!  There are almost always empty seats at events and what better way to say thank you to those who at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "'The United States of America", for aamount "up toand including my life".

Tickets are available for both veterans and active duty.  If you are one of these, please visit them at:
