$250? I undershot.

I don’t know what it’s like in your neck of the woods, but there are a lot of Veteran’s organizations around here. The Paralyzed Veterans of America has a local chapter, and once a year they phone for a donation. I gave $50 a year for a few years, and continued that trend this month.

Additionally, the Vietnam Veterans call up every four to six months looking for old clothes that could be resold at their thrift stores. That gave me the opportunity I needed to clear out my shoes, and sure enough, I had a Hefty bag fullof things I no longer wore and never would again. They weren’t in bad shape – just no longer my style, and some which were dad’s and never quite fit me properly.

I kept my gym shoes, black and brown business shoes, a pair of black and brown clogs, and my motorcycle boots. Everything else is on its way to help a couple deserving people out.

I’m not a big fan of the military as an organization – and never have been. But I feel like the people the military uses deserve whatever support we can offer.
