Some might wonder, "What is a NCAA bracket doing on a VA website?" Well, every year for the last 20 years, I've gone online to try and find a printable NCAA bracket and sure, there are plenty of them out there, but I thought this year I would create one that gave a shout out to our troops all over the world who put their lives on the line to keep ours safe. If we all can just do one small thing to support them, it would go a long way to keep their spirits up while sacrificing their lives away from their families.

Here are some websites to check out to support our troops:
Adopt a Soldier: Adopt A US Soldier is a non-profit organization that seeks volunteers to help show the brave men and women fighting for our freedom that their sacrifices will not go unnoticed. It connects supportive civilians with deployed troops and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to those brave men and women serving in the United States Armed Forces.
Stars for our Troops: Four women send stars from worn-out flags to military men and women. We are accepting names and addresses of soldiers currently serving, so they can receive their Stars. 100 Stars are sent to all currently serving. Veterans will receive 50 Stars to share.
Operation MOM: Operation Mom's primary mission is to provide a place where families of those serving our country can find support, encouragement, solace, and be with others who share their heart.
Hugs for Heroes: Hugs for Heroes is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that ships care packages containing essential items and notes of love and support to units serving overseas. Since 2004, we have shipped over 10 tons of goods to Iraq and Afghanistan, and our shipments are ongoing all year round.
THANK YOU TO OUR MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN! Your sacrifices are not going unnoticed. Make it home SAFE!
Special Thanks to Vertex42.com for their Fillable NCAA bracket.
