The mission of Vacations For Veterans is to provide a ‘free’ week of vacation lodgings to veterans of the United States Armed Forces who recently have been wounded in action. They are able to do this only through the generous donations of weeks from vacation homeowners, and through the generous donations of funds by others. Click here to fill out an application. Due to the small size of this organization, Vacations For Veterans has a very limited mission to help only Purple Heart Medal recipients from the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns.
Veterans can receive Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University Online for free. This offer is available to the first 2,000 to sign up today.
