Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
Thousands of troops are returning home and making regular trips to their local VA Hospital for evaluation, treatment or rehabilitation, and regular health care. With the high cost of gas, these vital trips are becoming more and more of a burden for some veterans.
Now the Soldiers' Angels VA Team is stepping up to help with the Tank Support program. Grateful Americans can help give a veteran some "tank support" by purchasing a gasoline gift card. All gas cards received will be sent to the VA Hospitals across the country to help ensure returning OEF/OIF Veterans get the checkups and medical care they need.
"It's so important that our returning heroes get regular evaluations and basic healthcare after having been in combat," says Soldiers' Angels founder Patti Patton-Bader. "The Tank Support program is an important way to help veterans to stay on top of their ongoing healthcare needs."
Supportive Americans can help returning veterans by purchasing a $10.00 gas card today at any chain gas station in their area, or ordering online through http://www.svmcards.net and using the shipping address below. People can also make a donation to the Soldiers' Angels Veterans' Support Team at http://www.soldiersangels.org and indicate that it is for the Tank Support program.
Gas cars should be mailed to:
