I Proved my point they are learning from us! Getting Smarter they are just a tip of the iceberg we need to take them over! We all think someone else will do it well they have web presence and testimonials and will have folks give them money and will get all kinds of veterans help them for years to come. Who is is helping that girl that quiet. I bet she was living in a shelter and or subsidized houseing. prior to them helping her now because someone bitched she is out. We need to start paying our workers more I have heard folks bitch about the past National Commander gets money after he leaves. I am sure it's nothing like some of the non profits out there, ....... maybe we should pay them more. I put a lot of time and money in everything i do the most I ever get is maybe a free hotel cost payment now and then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A lot of folks do a lot with there time because it feels good!!!! But if we are going to compete in this world today we need the good minds on our side. Money makes every thing easier. Even for us folks who say they don't want anything for all we do!
