Learn More About Rhode IslandÂ
The waterways of Rhode Island are some of the most beautiful marine destinations. Adventures abound, from sightseeing the majestic Narragansett Bay to enjoying water sports at Worden Pond.Â
Rhode Island is also home to more than 52,000 veterans at last count. Of these, more than 19,000 served during the Vietnam War, more than 8,700 during the Second Gulf War and more than 8,100 during the First Gulf War. The majority of the stateâ€™s veterans were of age 55 and older. No matter their age, however, nearly 6% of Rhode Island veterans live below the poverty line. This has a lot to do with the struggles many of them faced upon returning home from service, including finding work, paying bills and coping with mental health issues such as PTSD.Â
