It's so important that our returning heroes get regular evaluations and basic health care after having been in combat
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
Soldiers' Angels welcomes SVM, a leader in the gasoline and retail gift card industry, to its Tank Support program, which helps returning military veterans who must make regular trips to their local VA Hospitals. Grateful Americans can give a veteran some "tank support" by purchasing gasoline gift cards from SVM. All gift cards received will be used to help ensure returning combat veterans get the regular checkups and medical care they need, and SVM will donate $1 to the Tank Support effort for each purchase made through their website (up to $10,000).
Tank Support began in July 2008 to aid service members requiring assistance in order to frequently travel to VA medical facilities for evaluation, treatment or rehabilitation, and regular health care. These vital trips can be a financial a burden for some veterans, so SVM is honored to assist the Tank Support effort. "We know of no better cause than to help those men and women and their families who protect our freedom and way of life," says Marshall Reavis, SVM's CEO.
"It's so important that our returning heroes get regular evaluations and basic health care after having been in combat," says Soldiers' Angels founder Patti Patton-Bader. "The Tank Support program is an important way to help veterans stay on top of their ongoing health care needs."
