What is your constructive response for wounded veterans when people say or leave a note “You can’t park here – you’re not handicapped!”
In our Wounded Warrior Project workshop, this came up as an issue even with disabled veterans’ license plates.
Wounded veterans reported this also happens inside stores and restaurants regarding their service dog and being told they don’t look like they need a service dog.
Not all wounds are visible.Not everyone sees that.
Your insights could help educate others on invisible wounds and empower those who have them.

On this evening … all I want to say is, from my home to yours … thank you for loving this wonderful country and our fabulous citizens!
FYI, this photo taken by a Navy veteran from my living room waiting while I was on the phone helping a new Marine family whose child is leaving tomorrow for boot camp. Something I’ve been through … twice.
We are truly ALL in this together.
Love of country.
Love of family.
I truly care about you, your family and our country. If you have someone you love going into the military or through a career transition to civilian life, it can tough. Please feel free to reach out to me and I’ll do my best to be of insight, value, support or encouragement. No charge. Just authentically caring and sharing what I have learned as a military family.
With love, we unite!

Sorry for the awful video quality! The message is more important than my ego wanting it to look perfect. 🙂 An impromptu 25 second talk at Martin Luther King Jr’s church when asked “What life message would you like to share with these school children?”
Fun Fact – This is from Martin Luther King Jr’s church in Montgomery, Alabama.
