Recently, two groups that really help families and vets held fundraisers, and I attended parts of both.
The Bob Woodruff Foundation featured Jon Stewart as emcee; they vet and fund a growing network of nonprofits that help out directly.
The Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America advocates and provides lots of support for vets. (I'm on their board.)
Here we see Stephen Colbert accepting a civilian work award for his support for vets.
