Write my essay about veterans. Any ideas?

When I write my essay about veterans, I would first give a brief description of the people who fall into this category. I will discuss their significance in history, their influences up to this day and how they are recognized by the government and the entire nation.

Veterans are the military personnel who served the United States in the war. In their honor, veterans are given a day each year as tribute for their contribution and sacrifices. But this gesture is not enough. There are independent groups and with the help of the government too that dedicate themselves to support the welfare of the veterans. And this will be the focus of my essay. I would want to be able to relate the things not so many people are aware about. This includes the veteran’s life after war.

For instance, there are over 5.5 million U.S. veterans who are suffering from disabilities caused by the war they were involved with. In addition, because of their experiences at war, they are likely to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Although the group Disabled American Veterans makes sure to provide any form of help such as outreach and advocacy services, their efforts may not be enough to reach out to all veterans across the country. There is always something young people can do to help like volunteering to DAV. Somewhere someone, a veteran, in the community needs help. By simply devoting a few hours each week to tend to these ageing and disabled veterans. Moreover, because of their disabilities, they may not be able to support themselves financially which is why 260,000 veterans are about be this year alone. And through my essay, I would drive awareness and encourage support for them.
