Just in time for the holidays, I'm excited to share an easy way you can help even more heroes severely disabled in the war on terror.
You've already given generously to help our veterans - showing you're a patriotic American who's ready and willing to make personal sacrifices for our struggling heroes.
It's just that easy!
Your AmazonSmile enrollment can have an even bigger impact during the holidays, when you may be doing more shopping than usual buying gifts for friends and family.
Wouldn't it feel good to know that while you're buying Christmas gifts for your loved ones, you're also helping a disabled veteran who might not be able to put food on the table, let alone presents under the tree?
As a faithful Coalition friend, you know even the smallest amount makes a huge difference to someone who has nothing. And that's never more true than at Christmas, when disabled veterans afraid of losing their homes are also desperately scraping together anything they can to buy a gift or two for their children.
So this holiday season, I hope I can count on you to continue your commitment - in big ways and small ones - to America's wounded veterans. You're making a difference each and every day - and I'm so grateful for your support.
Serving those who served,
David Walker, President and CEO
Coalition to Salute America's Heroes
P.S. Enrolling in AmazonSmile - and selecting the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes as your charity of choice - is an easy way to help our seriously injured heroes during the holidays and throughout the year, at no cost to you. But since our heroes' needs are even greater at this time of year, won't you consider making a special one-time gift today?
The holidays are a painful time for disabled servicemen and women struggling to make ends meet - so your special Christmas gift can have an even bigger impact today. A gift of just $25, $30 or $50 will help a severely disabled veteran pay an urgent bill or give his family some holiday cheer. Can I count on your help today?

What a glorious day. Thank you, dear Lord for weather extraordinaire.
Morning radio news told me the high would be 71 today. I think we beat that.
I know this blog will sound dangerously close to one you’d expect from my wife, Jennifer, but I can’t help myself.
We were begging for days like this in June, July, and August. Saw people golfing. Saw people in shorts. Saw no one ready to jump from a window after last night’s Packer game.
When I arrived home Jennifer had already started the grill and Kyla had my stopwatch desperately wanting to “help” time the cooking. With the stopwatch wrapped around her neck, Kyla was encouraged to ride her bike in the adjacent courtyard. She would still yell to me the number of minutes. At “6” I flipped the burgers and took them off when Kyla yelled “12.”
After dinner I sat down to write my weekly pro-life blog when I saw out the window a family on bikes.
I didn’t ask Kyla if she wanted to ride her bike “one last time,” I told her she was going to. Would she have to change clothes, she wondered. No. Get out there before it gets dark.
Mommy wasn’t thrilled. She wanted to go over homework assignments with Kyla. Daddy’s response: It’s 74 degrees out there (As I post it's still 72 degrees, the windows are open, and I think it's too blasted hot in here).
Where was I? Oh yes. Out the door went Kyla and Daddy for what was surely the last bike ride until who knows, next June?
