H4H Friends, As a combat veteran, missionary work in India has been very therapeutic. In a few minutes I will walk out the door and ride down to a small campsite. The people there have been enslaved and are forced by the people who own them to do hard labor. The amount of money they make will never be enough to buy their freedom. Little do they know that their debt has already been paid. We have raised the money to set them free. My American Dream has been changing, as I get older. I have lived the most amazing life and have been blessed more than I ever deserve. ...

A little about me: I am a 13 year Combat Veteran of the United States Marine Corp. A little while after returning home from my deployment to Iraq in 2004-05, I decided to open my own business with hopes of being able to make people feel happier about themselves.

“Even when you think you have it hard, someone always has it harder.” Jeff Lynch Jeff & Christy Lynch received their American Dream Grant to fund Christmas for military families caught in the pinch until medical retirement/benefits become official, and before they can jumpstart their future.

I immediately went to work, but it is was still a struggle. Come Christmas time, we found ourselves faced with a ...

N Magazine celebrates Local Organization, Holidays for Heroes on Veterans Day

Just as you might remember a birthday or an anniversary, a wounded soldier will never forget the day his or her life was forever changed on the battlefield. In nearly any society, those who have come into harm’s way in the service of their country have long been honored for their sacrifices. Parades welcome them home, governments award them service medals and, for a time, they have the collective thanks of a grateful nation. But societies soon forget, and the sacrifices of the brave few are left behind, relegated to the pages of history. For the soldiers, however, ...
