Military spouses are the backbone of the military
The United States military is the finest fighting force in the world, ready to deploy anywhere within 48-hour notice. A combat-ready unit cannot operate without logistics, communications, and of course, family support. While they don’t wear uniforms, military spouses are fundamental in keeping our forces domestic and abroad focused, supported, and ready to go.
Military catfishing has increased since COVID-19
The COVID-19 crisis has made life more difficult for everyone, as millions of Americans have been stuck at home all day for months with no clear end in sight. On top of everything else going on, there is another threat that has become more popular during the global lockdown: catfishing. That’s right, scammers are using the lack of in-person access to their advantage in the hopes of financially exploiting trusting people. If you aren’t careful, you could become their latest victim.
Here’s an organization that’s giving back to those who serve during these trying times
Given the state of the world at the moment, it’s easy to feel powerless when it comes to making a difference. But while the COVID-19 crisis has forced us all to adjust to a new normal, there are still plenty of organizations and nonprofits that remain committed to helping make the world a better and safer place for everyone. Veteran nonprofits are providing essential community services in these trying times to help keep neighborhoods safe and secure.
