What can you do to make a difference?
Choose to Donate or Support the Cause.Since 2001 we have been engaged in the longest war in our country's history. While most Americans cannot recall a time at which the public held the military in higher esteem, its one thing to support our service people during a time of war, it's another to help them integrate into the community. There are currently over 22 million veterans in the U.S. Many have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. One million more service members will be reentering civilian life over the next five years and many of these returning warriors will face financial challenges that require assistances.
The Yellow Ribbon Registry Network (YRRN) offers grateful American Donor Patriots an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of returning warriors through donations. When you select to "Help Now", you are directed to listings men and women who are being assisted by these organizations on the YRRN – or as we call them, Heroes. You can read about their circumstances and history; learn where they are from, where they served and how your donation will make a difference in their future.
The Mission of the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network (YRRN) is to be a "Network of Nonprofits, People and Information to Assist Military and Veteran Families Recover".
