We are autistic civilians sharing one body, and we usually blog about issues related to being autistic, self-advocacy, and being multiple, among other things. Recently we became heavily interested in veteran advocacy, through connecting to several veterans on twitter and a couple on facebook. We decided to make a special list of resource sites for Veterans. It is the least we can do to thank those men and women who served/continue to serve our nation. We hope these links will be of help to anyone who happens to click through our blog. Thanks for visiting, and feel free to check out any of our other posts and leave comments!

To All American Veterans:
I am writing this now in honor of Veterans’ Day. Thank you for your service to America, from the bottom of my heart. Please know that you are deeply appreciated, even if you don’t hear it all that often. It is because of your sacrifices that we civilians continue to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. Freedom isn’t actually free, the costs are your blood, sweat, and sometimes your fellow soldiers’ lives. Whether or not I we agree with a particular war, you veterans did what the government asked of you. Welcome home. Our job as civilians is to try and help make your transition to civilian life a little bit easier, in whatever way we can.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. God Bless you all.
Hooah! Semper Fi! Anchors Aweigh! Aim High! Semper Paratus!
This is so awesome! We thank every veteran we come across, if they are not socially inaccessible at the time (engaged in other conversations or things like that.)
Veterans, thank you so much for all of your sacrifices.
Andrea the Integral
For all of us

The elderly parking lot attendant wasn’t in a good mood! Neither was Sam Bierstock. It was around 1 a.m., and Bierstock, a Delray Beach, FL, eye doctor, business consultant, corporate speaker, and musician was bone tired after appearing at an event.
He pulled up in his car, and the parking attendant began to speak. “I took two bullets for this country, and look what I’m doing,” he said bitterly.
At first, Bierstock didn’t know what to say to the World War II veteran. But he rolled down his window and told the man, “Really, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you.”
Then the old soldier began to cry.
“That really got to me,” Bierstock says.
Cut to today.
Bierstock, 58, and John Melnick, 54, of Pompano Beach…
