Our former soldiers are now facing tough challenges after returning home from the battlefields abroad upon the completion of their tours of duty. Subsequently discharged from the service, many of these new veterans brought with them the scars of battles they fought â€“Â physical disabilities and mental disorder.
They are among those who are experiencing great difficulty in transitioning to civilian life. Because of their condition, they canâ€™t find jobs that could provide for their needs and those of their family. They rely on government benefits, but sadly, these are often delayed if they are given at all.
Even some of those who managed to survive the battles they fought overseas unscathed are also experiencing civilian transitioning problems because of insufficient educational attainment and lack of civilian work experience and training.
Some of these veterans who badly needed assistance are living right here in this city. Thatâ€™s why we at Veteran Car Donations have set up our Mission Viejo, California car donations program. This serves a convenient way for the people of this city to reach out to their heroes, the veterans who fought to protect our liberties and our nationâ€™s security.
By donating your old unwanted cars to the program, you will be helping our impoverished veterans to get back on their feet and live a sustainable life.
