Memorial Day: Operation Homefront

This Memorial Day, as we take time to thank the men and women of the armed forces who protect us at home and abroad, we also need to consider how we might be able to give back as well.  For many veterans, coming home is often the hard part, after experiencing the hardships and life-altering events of war.  They may have difficulties paying bills, readjusting to civilian life, or learning to live with an injury or disability.  These are exactly the problems that Operation Homefront seeks to resolve for those who serve.  Retired Lieutenant Colonel Bob Pedigo, Chair of Operation Homefront's local chapter, talks about how our military men and women are falling by the wayside, and how you can help.  To learn more or lend support, visit
