Let's Help: Organizations that Help Veterans

 
See the handsome devil on the left with the machine gun in hand?
That's my dad.
Otherwise known as the Grandpop.
 
He was in Vietnam.
Late 1960's.
 
He is a Vet.  He fought long and hard and has earned the benefits given to him by our government in this day age.
 
The nice thing is there are other organizations in our country, not associated with the government, that help out veterans.  Organizations that help veterans are in demand!
 
In the South Jersey/Philadelphia area alone, there are numerous organizations to get in contact with to help the Vets.  All the vets, WWII, Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Afghanastan, vets deserve help.  I am sure in your neck of the woods, it's the same.
 
You can donate your time, clothing, even your cars to help them.  I have done a little to help the vets.  It's a cause dear to my heart (ahem, see photo...again!).  
 
One of my favorite things to see, especially on Memorial Day and Veterans Day, are the Vet who are donating their time, still, to see that other Vets get the recognition they deserve.  From hoisting the American Flag to giving speeches these Vets do what ever they can do help out their fellow brothers and sisters. 
 
I am raising the kids to always give back.  Not only is my Dad a Vet, but my Poppy was in WWII and was on the USS Missouri when the treaty was signed.  The Nana has a photo to prove it. 
 
It's a blessing to see that so many organizations will help a Vet.  It always not that easy to get help but they will aid you in trying to get it.  Plenty of Vets come home to nothing.  They have to start over and what a better way than reaching out to these groups and having them reach back and help them.  It really brings a smile to my face to see Vets get the necessary assistance they need to get their normal lives back. 
 
Tell me, do you have a Vet in your life? Are they getting the help the need?

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
