Veterans Support

Below is a list of the highest rated Veteran and Active Duty Support groups according to Charity Navigator. After you click on the link to their rating page, you will find a link to their respective websites in the top left hand corner. There are many other groups out there that are worthy of support and this list is just a few. There are also groups out there that are wasteful. We would encourage you to look at these organizations closely and see what people are saying about them before donating. We will be spotlighting individual groups off of this list every week.

If you know of an alternative group or have comments about any of the groups listed, we'd like to hear from you.

"All of us hope and pray that the time will come when we no longer need to dedicate memorials to men who died in battle--that we will dedicate memorials to those who live in peace--to all nations and all men." -- Senator Frank G. Moss, USS Utah Memorial ground breaking, December 7, 1971
