The flag’s 13 alternating red and white stripes represent the 13 original colonies. Its 50 white stars on a blue field represent the 50 states. The colors on the flag represent: red for valor and bravery; white purity and innocence; and blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Helping homeless veterans find housing.
Veterans who are in need of housing can receive assistance from the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program (HUD-VASH) by receiving long-term HUD-VASH housing vouchers. The housing vouchers pay for rent, but do not pay for the required deposits. There are many veterans who do not have the funds for the deposit. Veterans Matter raises money to pay the deposit. Veterans Matter works directly with the VA office to identify the veterans who need assistance.
The Duneland Exchange Club is raising money for Veterans Matter to help Northern Indiana Veterans with housing.
