For one Veteran, his life has revolved around the various 'suits' that he has worn. He recounts life from a small boy, through his time in the military, his getting himself into trouble resulting in incarceration, and his successful reintegration into the community upon release from incarceration. He notes that it was his military uniform—the 'suit'—that allowed him to be assisted by the Department of Veterans Affairs both while incarcerated and upon his release, highlighting the efforts on the part of VA to assist all incarcerated Veterans.

STORYLINE:

A group of one hundred US veterans arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on Friday, on their way to Normandy to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of D Day.

The group was met by Frances Minister for Veterans, Hamlaoui Mekachera at a reception at the airport.

The men flew in on an Air France jet, paid for by French businesses and individuals keen to make their visit possible.

Upon arrival, Rocco Moretto, from the 26th Infantry Division, said: "We went through so much sixty years ago. I left so many friends and buddies behind and I come here to honour them, they were the real heroes."

All the men and a handful of female veterans will be given the Legion D'Honneur, one of France's highest decorations, in recognition of their sacrifices.

99 will receive their medals on Saturday in Paris from the French Defence Minister.

One man will receive his decoration from President Chirac during the commemoration festivities in Normandy over the weekend.

The old soldiers will be staying in some of Paris's most prestigious hotels before making the trip by train to Normandy on Sunday.

Life was never the same for Zaneta Adams after a debilitating service-related injury. In her lowest moment, she considered giving up, but her children propelled her forward. Now an attorney and advocate for Veterans in Michigan, Adams opens up about her own struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and encourages fellow Veterans to reach out, ask for help, share the gift of hope, and give back. One way to do this, she found, is through VA’s Million Veteran Program.

June of 2019 we had the honor of bringing 16 #WWII #Veterans back to #Normandy for the #75th anniversary of #DDay. You can help more veterans return by donating to our foundation.
bestdefensefoundation.org/donate

"Taking care of the ones who took care of us"

#DonnieEdwards is a former #NFL football player who has spent the last 22 years giving back to our military. He has done 9 #USO tours, visited many military bases and accompanied hundreds of WWII veterans and Vietnam veterans back to #battlefields

In April of 2006 Donnie Edwards brought WWII veterans back to their battlefields for the first time. Since that time he has accompanied hundreds of WWII veterans from the top of Mount Suribachi in Japan to the top of Eagles Nest in Germany. Donnie works tirelessly to fulfill the wishes and needs of our veterans and to give them the honor and respect they so readily deserve.

Your generosity will help to ensure the foundation is able to provide these experiences to veterans in the future.

The freedoms we enjoy today are in no small measure due to their sacrifices, let us repay them with gratitude and honor.
