To the editor:
On May 13, I had the privilege of speaking at a press conference with the North Carolina Heroes’ Fund – an organization which provides financial assistance to veterans in need, particularly those who have suffered serious injuries in combat.
I believe sincerely that we have a duty to assist our veterans with the mental, physical, and financial hardships they suffer when they return home. We must never forget the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, and one of the best ways to honor these individuals is through the many veterans organizations in Eastern North Carolina. I applaud the Heroes’ Fund and similar groups for their service to our nation’s veterans.
