With thousands of our veterans suffering from poverty due to unemployment, North Dakota car donations have been launched to lend a helping hand to our brave yet disadvantaged former soldiers.
The Veteran Car Donations has taken the lead in calling on North Dakotans to join the campaign to positively transform the lives of our struggling veterans by donating their cars or other vehicles to raise funds to support programs such as counseling and skill training for our retired heroes.
The U.S. government has been helping thousands of our veterans. Unfortunately, however, the assistance is not enough because of the huge rise in the number of veterans. North Dakota car donations intends to cover the gaps so that no veteran will be deprived of assistance they so richly deserve.
Difficulties Faced by Our Veterans
Our retired servicemen and servicewomen are facing much more hardship even after the completion of their military service. One of the major problems our veterans are facing is unemployment. A recent study showed that only 41 percent of our troops had prepared for post-service careers. That leaves 59 percent of them jobless.
There are other factors that hinder them to get a steady and good-paying job. Some of our veterans have developed mental illnesses as a result of what they experienced in the battlefield. This factor greatly reduces their chances of being hired.
At least 20 veterans who had served in Iraq have reportedly been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). An estimated 22 percent of our veterans have been found to be suffering from depression. These factors not only affect their employment chances but may also lead them to commit suicide out of desperation.
Veteran Car Donations in North Dakota funds jobs and skills training programs for our struggling heroes to help them get good jobs to support themselves and their families after returning from service. North Dakota car donations will provide a helping hand to promote our veteransâ€™ welfare. Through your kind act of donating your vehicles, you will be funding programs that will uplift the lives of our hard-pressed veterans.
North Dakota is the Peace Garden State
North Dakota was officially recognized by the Stateâ€™s legislature as the Peace Garden State in 1957. The nickname was given to commemorate the International Peace Garden bordering Manitoba, Canada, and North Dakota.
The International Peace Garden is known to be the worldâ€™s longest unguarded border and a symbol of more than 200 years of peace between the United States and Canada. The International Peace Garden was built on July 14, 1932. Roughly 50,000 people came to celebrate the opening.
The state of North Dakota, although officially recognized as the Peace Garden State, has six more nicknames.
- Land of Dakotas â€“ This nickname is to recognize the inhabitants of the state in its earlier years. Dakota is a sub-tribe of the Sioux together with Nakota and Lakota.
- Sioux State â€“ It refers to the Native American Tribe who lived in North Dakota.
- Roughrider State â€“ The nickname was used for the Stateâ€™s tourism promotion in 1960 to 1970. This cited the late Theodore Rooseveltâ€™s cattle ranching business.
- Flickertail State â€“ Flickertail is a nickname used for the Richardson Ground Squirrel, which is found in North Dakota. It refers to the squirrelâ€™s flicks or jerks of its tail while running or entering a burrow.
- Great Central State â€“ refers to the location of North Dakota in the center or the great western Wheat Belt.
North Dakota played a big role during World War I. The people of the state contributed money, nurses, and soldiers to support our allies in Europe against Germany. The Peace Garden State keeps war memorabilia items available for public viewing at the State Museum in Bismarck. It is North Dakotaâ€™s way of honoring the sacrifices of American soldiers and leaders during the Great War.
