As 2020 comes to an end the contested election is over and we settle in for what will be a better year, the vaccine is here and slowly we will get back to a normal lifestyle. But for the homeless vets they will still be alone on the streets. The only shelter will be their tents or in some cases a sleeping bag. We at Veteran's Kitchen Inc. will continue to do what we can to help these vets get a normalcy back into their life. Thus living up to our motto "Restoring Dignity, One Vet at a Time" You can help us by going to the Veteran's Kitchen web site at veteranskitchen.org and click on the donate button any help is appreciated.

What Christmas is all About
I saw the man
lying in a doorway
trying to keep warm
while sleeping on a grate
against the winter cold.
The wealthy man
in his limo
can’t see him
as he rides past
to wrapped up in himself
The businessman,
talking on his cell,
takes little notice
of those around him,
so he never sees the man.
But a woman
with her arms full
as she carried
containers full of hot coffee
and hot sandwiches.
She rouses the man,
saying “Get up George”
as she gives him a cup
full of hot coffee
and a sandwich to eat
“See you at the mission,
We are fixing Christmas Dinner
and expect you to be there.
It’ Christmas Eve so you
and all your friends are welcome tonight.”
As she hustles off
with her hot coffee
and sandwiches,
looking for another homeless
to spread some Christmas cheer on.
Have I just seen a miracle?
An angel on a mission
of spreading God’s love.
Too bad the wealthy man
or the man on the phone didn’t notice.
Somehow, amongst all the songs,
festivities and decorations,
we lose sight of what it all means.
but a lady on a mission
made it all come home to me.
So this year when I tell you
Have a Merry Christmas,
It will be because
I saw one of God’s angels
come down low to earth.
She didn’t sing alleluia,
She only said to a poor, homeless man
that God cared about him
and he was welcome at his mission,
after all that is what Christmas is all about.

What is a Veteran?
Some veterans bear visible signs of their service: a missing limb, a jagged scar, a certain look in the eye. Others may carry the evidence inside them: a pin holding a bone together, a piece of shrapnel in the leg or perhaps another sort of inner steel: the soul's ally forged in the refinery of adversity. Except in parades, however, the men and women who have kept America safe wear no badge or emblem. You can't tell a vet just by looking.
What is a vet? He -- or she – is...
· the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn't run out of fuel.
· the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel.
· the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.
· the POW who went away one person and came back another - or didn't come back at all.
· the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat - but has saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other's backs.
· the carrier pilot landing on a rolling, pitching, heaving flight deck during a rain squall in the pitch-black night of the Pacific, the North Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the Gulf of Arabia, the Gulf of Tonkin, or any of a hundred other places.
· the parade-riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand.
· the career quartermaster or the flight-deck yellow-shirt or the engine-room snipe who watches the ribbons and medals pass him by.
· the man who survived a year in Hell, and came home to be spat upon by his fellow Americans.
· the Army Ranger who humps endless miles of burning sand for three days with no sleep or food and very little water to designate targets for laser guided bombs or swims through a disease infested swamp and crawls over poisonous snakes under the cover of darkness to conduct intelligence on a foreign government hostile to our own and our cherished way of life.
· the anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean's sunless deep.
· the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket – palsied now and aggravatingly slow – who helped liberate a N**i death camp and who wishes all day long that his wife was still alive to hold him when the nightmares come.
A vet is your father, mother, brother, sister, husband, wife, neighbor.
He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being – a person who offered some of his life's most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs.
He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known.
So, remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say
"Thank You". That's all most people need, and in most cases, it will mean more than any medals they could have been or were awarded.
Two little words that mean a lot:
"THANK YOU".

As director, part of my job is to stay in touch with the people, that we rely on for locations, to raise the funds that we need to support the homeless veterans that we help. I spoke to three of the store managers at the local Walmarts and heard them tell me that it will be next year before we will be able to set-up. But it's not just us that can't set-up it's are fund raisers can't set-up until their home offices give the OK, so we have been hanging on by setting up at some local 7-elevens and the commissary's at Oceana and NOB. So I am asking that if you can help go to our raffle and support us. The monies that we raise will help us provide the thanksgiving meals that we give our vets every year so that they can enjoy a good Thanksgiving Dinner. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. www.veteranskitcheninc.ourraffle.org is the web address for the raffle.

Veterans Kitchen Inc. is a veteran run, non-profit charity. Designed to aid homeless veterans in their transition from being homeless to having a home. This year we are having to explore new avenues to raise the monies needed to accomplish our mission. This why we are running an online raffle to help get the funds we need to help these vets. With the COVID -19 being hard on all of us, it is even harder on the homeless. So if you can go to www.veteranskitcheninc.ourraffle.org and help us out.

Welcome to Veterans Kitchen

Let me tell you about Veterans Kitchen Inc.
We are 501(3)c Charity, what this means we are a non-profit charity and any donations to us are Tax Deductible. We due to the COVID-19 Virus and restrictions of social distancing and all restrictions limiting the availability of locations, we have been limited as to how we can raise monies necessary to survive and help the homeless veterans. We started this to help veterans who need our assistance, to date we have helped the different housing authorities place over 3,000 veterans into their own home. I was once asked why, why help homeless veterans. To this I replied “Because they, raised their hand and swore to defend this nation against all enemies foreign and domestic, and willing to give up their lives in defense of this country.” For this reason alone is reason enough to try and do something to end this homeless cycle. But we need your help to be able succeed.
Your support can create amazing change
We rely on the support of friends like you — people who understand that they can help change minds about this issue. Your support is disparately needed to be able to help these veterans. Your donations will help a veteran who was willing to go war if needed to defend your freedom let’s help them to be able to help make a much needed change to their lives. Because without your support and backing we a small portion of this region can not do what is necessary to bring about change, but together we can change the world and make a considerable dent in the homeless veteran population.
Your donation, big or small, will help bring real change.
Now it’s time for you to do your part in assisting us in this venture go to http://www.veteranskitchen.org and go to the DONATE button and follow the directions there.
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING AND YOUR SUPPORT!

Friends;

As many of you know I am the Director for Veterans Kitchens Inc, a non-profit 501c3 charity. We specialize in helping homeless veterans. Since our beginning in 2014, we have helped the different housing authorities throughout Hampton Roads in placing over 2,500 veterans into their own homes by giving them everything they need to prepare healthy, nutritious meals.

We raise money by selling military items like hats, flags, lanyards, keychains, etc. outside grocery stores on the weekends. Because of the covid-19 virus pandemic we have lost our vital source of income by not being able to conduct fundraisers at local stores. Since the pandemic lockdown in March, 2020, we have struggled to keep our doors open. We have explored different fundraising options, and we will be conducting online raffles on Facebook in the next few weeks. Follow our Veterans Kitchen Inc. page for details.
