WE HAVE ADDED A LINK TO SONS & DAUGHTERS IN TOUCH:
Sons & Daughters In Touch (SDIT) is a group that formed in 1990, and was originated by the children of Vietnam Veterans. They wanted to be able to get in touch with each other, and lend support to each other and to veterans. They have grown since then, and are now a Veteran Support Organization. Please visit their site, using the link in the list to your left, "Sons/Daughters In Touch". You may be surprised!
The Clorox Company has an entire community set up to help Caregivers cope. This is a Newsletter that was brought to our attention, and we thought you would be interested in reading it.
ABOUT OUR FACE BOOK PAGE:
AVVA's Facebook page is a place where our members can share information and events; opinions and ideas.

Below is a screen-shot of how our page looks when your arrive there ( you must have a facebook account to visit our page, but that is very easy to set up).
GO TO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE: It will look like what you see above, with the exception of the top picture possibly changing from time to time. Notice that there is a circle around a little "icon" that says "Post". This is all you have to do to post a message on our page! Just click on that little icon. You can add pictures as well. There are also otehr links that will take you to photos, etc, that are posted here.
Share your local events being hosted by your chapter or state, perhaps interesting articles or information you have found. Whatever you would like to share. HOWEVER: You must be careful not to post anything too "off-color", inappropriate, or just plane rude. If you do, we will take it down. Try to keep to the rule that if you would not tell it to your mother or your daughter, it does not belong on this page!
