Blogger Friends! and more on Veterans Day this Year

Quest 35 Service ProjectMilitaryAvenue is always looking for new resources for our military community! Last Friday, on Veterans Day, I met some patriots and fellow bloggers who I think you might find interesting and helpful. Enthused, caring and smart, their excitement could be felt during our get together and the project. Hard working too! So they have information to share and stories to tell that just might get you over a hump day or help finish that bathroom project you have been waiting to get started on!

First, I am not a real handy DIY (Do it Yourself) guy. Maybe it was all the military moves and short stays at most locations which meant we had a chance to do some landscaping and then the order arrived for the next place. But here are some DIY bloggers that cared enough about military families to work a service project for veterans and tell their communities about the Home Depot Giveaway:

Second, a group of bloggers who have met the military lifestyle challenges and dealt with issues just like you have. They knew the sacrifices that you have faced as you serve and they also served a low income and veteran community on Veterans Day.

All of the bloggers have written blogs about helping you, the American military community and the Home Depot Foundations Give the Gift of Good contest. Each is inviting participants in their area to enter the contest for a $20,000 Home Makeover but yet they provide more than the entry into a contest. You might find a new friend, someone dealing with life issues the same as yours, a new spring in your step while updating the kitchen, etc. It was a fun trip and an even more fun group of patriots.byColonel KonFriday, November 18, 2011Military Life:,,,
