Military veterans do so much to serve our country—they volunteered to defend our country at great personal risk and did so proudly. When they return home from deployment, those veterans need help acclimating to civilian life. Many soldiers struggle with finding their place in the world when transitioning back. Day to day life has many challenges, especially for those with PTSD, severe injuries, and emotional trauma. Fortunately for them, there are many nonprofit and charitable groups available to help. The groups are as diverse as the soldiers themselves. Some dedicate their resources solely to injured soldiers, others help them and their families, while some offer social services. Many struggles await returning solders, which is why it’s crucial to help these groups that assist veterans. Here are a few of the top-rated charities for supporting the military.

The outreach of the foundation supports those who sacrifice everything to defend our country; active-duty soldiers, veterans, first responders, as well as their families. The scope of the group is large, and they have nine key programs to help our men and women in uniform.
