CrowdFundBeat Special Edition,

As Americans, we unite on Memorial Day to remember our fallen heroes, but on this day we also resolve to support our service members and their families. They serve for us – now we will serve for them.

There are many things we can do to support our active-duty troops, veterans and their families. They all face the challenges of military service: from multiple deployments that separate family members, to recovering from the wounds of war. Ideas and useful links are provided throughout this section to help you provide much needed assistance and support.

Send your personal thanks or a thoughtful care package to active-duty troops or those in hospitals and rehabilitation centers. Mentor a military family member looking for employment. Help severely wounded warriors and their caregivers meet practical, everyday needs or get involved with a support group for grieving families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Make a meaningful difference in the lives of our courageous military families, starting today.

The Military and Veterans Crisis Line

Help is available support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for veterans in crisis and their families and friends.

Blue Star Families

Committed to improving the lives of military families, Blue Star Families’ wide range of programs includes career development for military spouses, fun and educational events for children, caregiver support, and most importantly, the chance to build community with other military families.

Give an Hour

Service members and their families may struggle with anxiety, depression, substance abuse or post-traumatic stress disorder. GAH’s national network of volunteer mental health professionals offers free and confidential counseling to active service members and their loved ones. Volunteer as a mental health professional or to help with administration, fund raising and outreach.
