In our travels to see the troops, many share with us their sense of loneliness, isolation and feelings of being forgotten. Their commanders tell us that some troops never receive mail from home. In response, Green Beans Coffee has launched Cup of Joe For A Joe to let anyone, anywhere in the world, say thanks to our troops through the simple act of buying a cup of coffee and having it delivered along with their own personal note of encouragement into the hands of a deployed serviceman.My wife especially has always felt a deep gratitude towards the men and women who choose to protect us and she has really gotten the entire family into the act. My oldest child has even begun writing letters. All of this is great, but I often wish we could do more.
Those who have sacrificed most for this nation are coming home to bleak job prospects. However, there are resources available to make the transition from military to civilian a bit easier. Job-Hunt.org has complied a handy list of these groups.
In addition I would like to extend the following offer. If you have recent returned from active duty, and are in need of a new resume just send me an email and I will do what I can to help. Its the least I can offer in return for your sacrifices.
